scorching heat and heatstrock....

Hot summers and scorching heat sweat and lots of cases of heatstroke and dehydration its really important to take precautions …..stay at home is not the solution we all know that so we have to see some other important tips  Very high temperatures in summer, coupled with strenuous exercises, lead to excessive perspiration, which in turn leads to loads of fluid loss from the body.
To replenish, we can depend on water and other beverages, seasonal fruits and vegetables to meet the increased fluid needs.

Since our body cannot store water, one must drink plenty of it to recover losses and maintain healthy functioning of body cells.
During summers, the water intake could mean even double the recommended water intake which is about six to eight glasses of water.
As much as two litres can be lost in excessive heat. Therefore, beverages are extremely essential to stay hydrated.
Inadequate water intake can lead to hyper filtration that damages the kidneys and leads to the formation of renal stones.
Just like hunger is not a reliable indicator for food, similarly, thirst is also not a reliable indicator for water intake. People with a high thirst threshold have higher water needs compared to others.

Besides water, certain healthy beverages like cold soups, fresh fruit juices and squashes can prove to be refreshing. Whether they are part of a meal or in between, a refreshing drink can help you rejuvenate just when you begin to wilt with soaring temperatures. Just like choosing your food, the choice of your drink can make a difference between how you feel and how it affects your body’s water balance.
The ideal drink is either pure drinking water or that which provides health benefits and replaces minerals and electrolytes.
It can be lightly sweetened but avoid preservatives and chemicals.
 I am trying to introduce few coolers that can help you and your family to fight with this scorching heat and water loss so surprise your family with these exotic coolers and healthy herbal drinks I am sure this will help you all a lot…………your friend

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting. My dietitian sugges…

Gur chana / jaggery coated roasted chickpeas

Very tasty, crunchy yet healthy snack for kids, full of protein . I often make this crunchy delight for munching. 
 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.

She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
