Recipe to make ARHAR DAL (Boiled Yellow split Pigeon peas curry):
– Boil Yellow split Pigeon peas, salt, 2-3 tomatoes roughly cut & 1 slit green chilli in a pressure cooker to soften. It takes 4-5 whistles to cook fully. For best results, soak it in water for 2-3 hours before boiling. – Now warm 2 tsp ghee in another pan or extra-large sized spatula and crackled 1/2 tsp hing (asafoetida) and 1/2 tsp cumin seeds in it – Place it carefully on the pressure cooked with the boiled peas & tomato es – If you want you can add extra dry spices/ seasoning to suit your taste though I love to enjoy it simple only
Recipe to make UNRIPE MANGO/CORIANDER/ MINT CHUTNEY: – In a medium-sized mixy jar put 10-12 garlic cloves, 25 gms roughly chopped coriander, 1 unripe mango roughly chopped, 15-20 gms of mint leaves, 1 fresh lemon squeezed, salt 1 tsp, 2-3 green chillies and mix it all up and tada! Chutney is ready 😁
Now enjoy a healthy, simple and very delicious dal, chutney with steamed rice. If you want, enjoy it with papad, salad and a little pickle on the side though tastes totally awesome just by itself too!!! Enjoy❤✨
Growth in one area of life inspires growth in all areas of life.
My pics above are proof of this as I lost nearly 8 Kgs over time through running.
The one on the left is me in late 2018.
Struggling in almost all areas of my life – health, career, relationship or finance.
Trying to bring it all together though with little progress.
Then through a lucky accident, a friend introduced me to running.
Seeing her run every morning inspired me to give it a try too!
The start was painful, to say the least, yet I didn’t give up.
It was a commitment I’d made with myself for my health & fitness. I had to live up to it.
Just kept reminding myself of this whenever I felt like taking a break or giving up completely and continued to show up anyway.
In 3 months time, something amazing started to happen.
People who saw me after a while started complimenting me that I’ve lost a lot.
This further motivated me to stay at it while I’d already started taking this newfound energy & confidence into other areas of my life.
The precious lessons that running taught me started to bleed into all areas of my life & started benefiting them.
Over time, I lost nearly 8 Kgs of excess body weight but more than that I gained: – Immense self-confidence – Endurance – Self-awareness – Self-love – A source of strength – A calmer, more relaxed state of mind – A fresh perspective to look at things – Ability to make myself feel good – Better health overall – Improved quality of life – Happiness
…and so much more than maybe I can’t fully express in words.
It all started just by running with purpose.
This is why I believe we should never underestimate the power of little healthy shifts & habits.
Test, experiment & find one single healthy habit to do at least 4-5 days a week.
Even if it’s something as simple as 30 mins brisk walk every day (tbh, it’s great actually).
Get started & stick with it.
Make it your constant to keep coming back to no matter what.
In time, its results will surprise you, beyond the obvious health benefits.
And you’ll feel the shift in your energy & see how things start turning around for you✨
Here’s my quick & simple prep for 3 medium glasses:
– In a mixer put 1/2 ltr of milk – Add 1 mango cut in small pieces (I use Safeda mango for shakes, you can use the 🥭 of your choice) – Add 3 tsp of sugar or sugar alternative of your choice – Add cardamom powder of 3-4 cardamoms… …and blend it all up, serve and enjoy!❤
