Homemade almond/cashew khowa

I do prepare this dessert often and is really simple once you have the khoya ready! Specially coz my LO doesn’t consume milk / curd, I try all alternate ways like preparing roti dough using curd instead of water, making paneer dishes, preparing desserts using milk products and he loves eating them ๐Ÿ˜‰…

Homemade zero waste filter coffee โ˜•๏ธ

Though I don’t drink coffee I do love the aroma of fresh ground coffee powder. Btw my hubby starts his day with a strong cup of coffee โ˜•๏ธ <though he drinks only 1 cup a day, he likes it real strong>. All these days I was using the instant coffee powder. But when ever I crossed the – coffee day’s fresh & ground store, I was very much temped to buy it and moreover fresh ground coffee powder can be bought unpacked, for those who aren’t aware of, I am very much inspired by Bea Johnson the pioneer of zerowaste movement, author & founder of zerowastehome,..<Btw even while buying instant coffee powder I always used to opt for the ones packed in glass jars and reuse them later as spice jars and now I don’t need more as my spice rack is full.>

Detoxifying warm lemon ๐Ÿ‹ juice ๐Ÿธ with honey ๐Ÿฏ

When ever I sense flue / throat infection symptoms, I would do this detoxification for a day and it will be gone like magic โœจ. This has been working wonders for me and for few of my family members and so I thought of sharing it with you guys! It’s a well known fact that lemon is extremely rich in vitamin C, it helps detoxify our body. Even if you don’t have the flue symptoms you can still do this to detoxify your body from various toxins that get accumulated (due to consumption of junk food / intake of medicines / inhalation of polluted air etc…), once in a month.

Through this detoxification process we do not consume heavy food hence give a lot of time for the body’s natural defence system aka immune system to produce antibodies and act on the antigen (bacteria, viruses, or fungi that cause infection and disease) & inactivate them! I believe our forefathers knew the benefits of this and hence made a custom to fast on Shukla Paksha Ekadashi <an auspicious day, 11th lunar day in waxing phase,ย which occurs in a Hindu calendar month>ย that comes up monthly once… How wise of them! So instead of a complete fast, how about this with lemon & honey!

DIY all-natural organic Beard oil – Man of Woods

For some men, growing a beard is not easy and for others, it comes so fast that it is a challenge to keep up with it. But for those that sport the beard, taking good care of it is important; in fact, most beards need daily care or they go from a sexy look to a scruffy and unkempt look. You need to wash, trim and condition it to help keep it well-groomed. So, yes, beard maintenance is crucial if you plan to wear one.

I’ve done this specially for my beardy cousins (they grow it for style) & my hubby (being very occupied with his r&d shaves weekly once n so has a little beard on weekdays ๐Ÿ˜‰)! I’ve come to know through them that there are few problems they face with the beard –

  • Since beard hair is typically quite coarse, men often experience itchiness and even in-grown hairs on the delicate facial skin underneath.
  • A full beard also makes it difficult to access the skin so common skin problems like dryness, acne or inflammation can be compounded.

Why Beard Oil?

Homemade Veg BBQ

One of my favourite starters have been the veg BBQs, ever since I had them in the BBQ nation <a restaurant that is known for its BBQ starters>… We started re-visiting the restaurant just for the starters. I badly wanted to try them @ home and since I didn’t have the equipment & charcoal on hand, kept postponing the trial… Then on one fine day I did try the mushroom BBQ on gas stove top and it turned out real good almost like the restaurant one <btw I say almost as burning on charcoal gives a special taste and since I did on stove top, that flavour was missing but other wise it was 90% similar and close to the taste!> Once the mushroom BBQ turned out good I tried with few more veggies and it was a success, yah! So here comes the recipe..
