Today was such an hectic day..

But i am happy that my day was good  I am satisfied that i was able to do most of the stuff i had decided to.

As its summer time,there is so much possibility of food getting spoil.  That is what happened last week most of the time the milk would break & we happen to collect lot of paneer.

We have never prepared paneer at home nor had we cooked it any time.

But it was my longtime desire to cook it ,just that i was too lazy to do it.

Another Healthy Drink with my much fav Tomatoes

Starting with the basics, tomatoes contain large amounts of vitamin C, providing 40 percent of the daily value (DV). They also contain 15 percent DV of vitamin A, 8 percent DV of potassium, and 7 percent of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of iron for women and 10 percent RDA for men.

The red pigment contained in tomatoes is called lycopene. This compound appears to act as an antioxidan

Now going to the Drinks –

take

Ripe Tomatoes- 2 nos.

Cucumber- 1 medium sized

Slice the tomatoes and cut the cucumber into large pieces. Blend the ingredients with a few sprigs of mint and rock salt to taste.

I think the trick lies in the way they are cooked. Since then I am eager on trying various recipes on prawns, happen to watch one of the cookery show on TV last weekend, found it interesting, I am certainly going to try it out one day .Hopefully I don’t start hating them all over again after that 🙂

3) Cumin seeds

4) Dried Red chilies

5) Dry grated coconut

8)  and of course Prawns

Route to Delicious Prawns curry
