I didn’t grow up in a farm nor entirely in restaurant special menu, household! There were times, when garnishing was not so important, even on festival occasions! But, none of this bothered us…coz’ we were all zeroing down in the main course or simply drowned in the spicy curries.
When, I happen to face myself in the kitchen (rather too early at my age), started experimenting all the delights I gone through at various occasions, (not to mention, was travelling a lot)! But believe me, whenever I wanted to treat myself, I do settle for the long last childhood food! Simply recapture the simplest form of food (salt and steam kind). I never look forward to fix them in million different ways! We call it healthy!
No, no, I am still not talking about ‘Diet food’ here! In fact that doesn’t even exist in my dictionary! All I know is…little about calories, bit of science, good physical activity (many call it exercise, work out), to curb the stress, bring positive outlook during painful moments and sure, Eating Right with loved ones.
Health mix flour 1 cup. (Raagi, bajra, whole wheat, barley, oats, millets, cashew nuts, almonds, and much more)
Sugar 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder 1/4 spoon
Ghee few spoon
Milk few spoons
Cashew nuts 10 sliced and fried in ghee
Raisins 15, fried in ghee.
Dry toast the health mix powder for couple of minutes, or till aromatic.
Now add powdered sugar to it. Mix the other ingredients too…sprinkle milk and bring them into soft dough. Divide into equal parts and shape them into laadus.
Yep, that’s it…pop them into your mouth! Delicious, right!!!
