Just the word ‘Salad’ brings to everyone’s mind grated carrots and cucumbers dressed with lime, pepper and salt. No, a salad need not be boring. There are multiple ways of making interesting, tasty salads. Lets see what are the ingredients that go to make an interesting salad that is nutritious as well. Salads are wonderful ways of adding health to your life. Firstly, they have natural flavours, crunchy texture and wonderful colours gifted by Nature. Secondly, including a large serving of fresh raw vegetables in our everyday meal can have significant health benefits. Salads are a natural source of fibre. Be it summer or winter, a crisp salad is the basis for an energizing meal. Even while dining out, ordering a fresh salad is the best way to start a dinner. The digestive enzymes that are present in the raw vegetables prevent indigestion that might be caused by the food that was to follow.

This Groundnut Kadhi is a simple and delicious Kadhi without any fancy ingredients. A great soul food. The best Vegan Kadhi Having left dairy products from my daily life, groundnut curd has been my saviour, me being an ardent fan of curd. This is so versatile that you can make kadhi, raita, dahi chawal and at times I just mix a tablespoon of jaggery powder in a cup of this curd and have it as a dessert a la Mishti Doi. The Chaas from this curd is the best Chaas I have ever tasted. Best part is this does not become sour like normal curd. Here is  Groundnut Kadhi recipe using groundnut curd.   Groundnut Kadhi

February 10th is celebrated as World Pulses Day. I am an avid fan of whole pulses / lentils. When I took a review of my posts so far, I realised I have as of today posted 22 recipes using whole pulses & legumes. I decided to compile all those recipes and make an eBook that you can download from my site.
