Sunday - Cook at home!

Cook your Sunday to your full pleasure

Sundays are important family days. It is more well spent at home with lively pleasures of quick and healthy cooking.


This Sunday we advice you to start with the all healthy Plan Ravi Idli with Horse gram Chutney, this will keep you going for a good 4 hours, as Rava is quite filling. Horse gram is full of proteins and will help you stay light.

A good lunch could comprise of Dil Leaves and coconut rice along with Cabbage, Capsicum and Carrot Palya. And for dessert, if you do have 15 minutes to spare and a few naughty kids, it's probably a good idea to make this all healthy slowly digesting Wheat Badami Burfi

Woow, that already feels relishing. The lightness of eating at home and being with family is much more satisfying than a sumptuous, oily, and overloading eat-as-much-as-you-can buffet.

We Indians are very excited about our tea time as much as the British are. However, our tea times are very well celebrated with Pakodas or Chaats rather than cakes and muffins.

I would suggest you go for the Raw Banana Palya Samosa today. Its more exciting as we can leave the age old Aloo (potato) behind for a very own coastal Raw Banana. A mug of hot masala chai invigorated with some Ginger, Cardamon, and cloves make the evening ever so refreshing.

Go out for a walk to either Lalbagh or Cubbon park to embrace the chill breeze that the beautiful city of Bangalore brings to you. As a word of caution, make sure you cover your ears and neck well! 

Hmm, Sundays fly away so quickly that you never realise that they have even arrived. Well, in other words its dinner time already. Dinners, I would advice to be the lightest amongst all the other meals in the day. A quick light dinner by around 7.30pm to 8pm would be ideal and what I would suggest to you today is go for the Akki Rotti. The light fluffy rotti, is a great recipe for a light and ever so tasty meal. This tastes awesome with Corriander chutney which I've mentioned in the Akki Rotti's recipe.

I'm sure your entire family would concur with your thought that this was a Sunday well spent. To end your Sunday on a great note, go for either a hot or cold Badam Milk!!

Eat healthy and Stay healthy my dear friends!
