Mango Lassi | Mango Lassi Recipe

Mango LassiI love mangoes. I love to try out as many mango recipes as possible during summer. This summer, my mom requested me to make Mango Lassi. She came here just to spend some time with me. I said yes and last Friday, I made this yummy Mango Lassi for her. I also had a surprise guest at home that evening. My guest loved it to the core. When you are planning to throw a party, you can make this recipe which is very easy to make as well tasty too. You can definitely not go wrong anywhere. All you need is the curd. You can also play with the ingredients (i.e) you can add increase or decrease an ingredient as per your desire. My mom makes plain lassi often. I make Mango Lassi occasionally that is because I cannot eat too much of mangoes. Stay tuned for more mango recipes.

Homemade Curd | How To Make Curd/ Yogurt/ Dahi At Home

Homemade Yogurt

I learned to make curd three months after my wedding. Gj is a great fan of curd. If he is eating curd, then he needs to have some spicy side dish like Potato Fry, Prawn Curry etc. Once he eats his favorite combination of curd rice and spicy side dish, he will go to a deep sleep.

Uppu Seedai |Uppu Seedai Recipe | Krishna Jayanthi Recipes

Uppu Seedai

Uppu Seedai is one of my favorite snacks till date. We do not get seedai here other than the store bought ones. I feel the taste of the store bought ones cannot even come closer to what we make at home. So I always make seedai at home especially for movie or snow time. During my childhood days, I would eat probably two cups of seedai a week such is my love for seedai.

Got Your Dairy Today?

Got Your Dairy Today?

10 tips to help you eat and drink more fat-free or low-fat dairy foods

The Dairy Group includes milk, yogurt, cheese, and fortified soymilk. They provide calcium, vitamin D, potassium, protein, and other nutrients needed for good health throughout life. Choices should be low-fat or fat-free – to cut calories and saturated fat. How much is needed? Older children, teens, and adults need 3 cups a day, while children 4 to 8 years old need 2 1/2 cups, and children 2 to 3 years old need 2 cups.

1. “Skim” the Fat

Drink fat-free (skim) or low-fat (1%) milk. If you currently drink whole milk, gradually switch to lower fat versions. This change cuts calories but doesn’t reduce calcium or other essential nutrients.

2. Boost potassium and vitamin D, and cut sodium

Choose fat-free or low-fat milk or yogurt more often than cheese. Milk and yoghurt have more potassium and less sodium than most cheeses. Also, almost all milk and many yoghurts are fortified with vitamin D.

10 Tips To Help You Eat More Seafood

Eat Seafood Twice a Week

10 Tips To Help You Eat More Seafood

 

Twice a week, make seafood-fish and shellfish-the main protein food on your plate.* Seafood contains a range of nutrients, including healthy omega-3 fats. According to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, eating about 8 ounces per week (less for young children) of a variety of seafood can help prevent heart disease.

1. Eat a variety of seafood

Include some that are higher in omega-3s and lower in mercury, such as salmon, trout, oysters, Atlantic and Pacific mackerel, herring, and sardines.

2. Keep it lean and flavorful

Try grilling, broiling, roasting, or baking-they don’t add extra fat. Avoid breading or frying seafood and creamy sauces, which add calories and fat. Using spices or herbs, such as dill, chilli powder, paprika, or cumin, and lemon or lime juice, can add flavor without adding salt.
