Almond paprika

when i saw an almond tree at my backyard I was amazed . The Tree was full of green almonds and they looked so fresh and tempting that I thought I must prepare something out of it.A friend of mine once told me, that raw green almonds are a delicacy because they stay for a very little time and can't be stored thus, they are not very easily available in the market . Did you know that in Iran they eat it raw with salt as a snack!

Fresh Green Almonds are available during April and May.
Fresh, green almonds produces a peach-like feel over green skin. A translucent, gelatinous substance surrounds the nut inside.
Trans-fat-free and cholesterol-free, fresh green almonds provide the same nutritional benefits as dry roasted almonds which include protein, dietary fiber, vitamin E, calcium, iron and a trace of vitamin C. One-fourth cup contains about 180 calories.
The young nut taste pairs well with compatible lemony flavors. To store, keep refrigerated up to three weeks.
Almonds are a little tangy in taste with a little lemony flavor .
I thought I must try something unusual with these delicious green almonds so I tried almond paprika. I gave it that name because I used a lot of green and red pepper in it to give it a tangy and spicy taste .

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth .....it 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…
