Papaya shake ( Nutritional drink )

If you've ever thought of blending papaya into a shakes, you're in for a treat. My elder daughter is very fond of papaya and she can have it in any form now but when she was a toddler, she was a very fussy eater and I had to struggle a lot to make her eat, that time shakes and smoothies where great time savers for me as I just had to make her drink a glass full of nutrition and she was done for the morning breakfast .....now she is grown up but  shakes and smoothie love is still on ....I have lots of interesting and well tried & tested recipes with me for all those moms whose toddlers are fussy eaters like my daughter:) 

First in series is papaya shake .....healthy, tasty and creamy .....papaya is a rich source of antioxidant nutrients such as carotenes, vitamin C and flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate and pantothenic acid; and the minerals, potassium and magnesium; and fiber. 
I have learnt a lot about the health benefits of papaya on google if you are also curious to know must visit link ..http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/275517.php

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.

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.
