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 .

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.
