  • SANDWICH MASALA IS READY!!

SANDWICH MASALA

Toast the bread slices with ghee on the dosa tawa .If u have a toast maker , that’s fine.I don’t have one..If desired the sandwich can then be toasted using sandwich maker.

Take two toasted bread slices and place the sandwich masala in one and close it with the other.

Again put it on the tawa , press it well and serve hot with ketchup or mint chutney..

YUMMY sandwich is ready to enjoy with tea/coffee!!

TRIED & TASTED:

BABY CORN MANCHURIAN:

Last week i bought baby corn for the first time and i tried this manchurian from my Sister-in-law’s blog..…I have tried Gobi manchurian and the method of doing this is similar to that.Very tasty and we liked it very muchDrooling..U can find the recipe here..I just adjusted the amount of sauce & chilli powder according to our taste..

 KITCHEN CLINIC:

BREAD:

Of all the foods which have been around throughout history, bread is close to being about the oldest one. The first ingredients were used during the Neolithic ages when bread is said to have been made from grains of ground cereal and water. The johnnycake, pita, tortilla and oatcakes from Scotland are ancestors of these early recipes.

Did you know that more than 59 pounds of bread and bread products are consumed by Americans?.  
And, almost every household has at least two types of bread within them? 

Bread is a wonderful source for iron, vitamins, calcium and protein as well as fiber in the whole wheat varieties which aids in the digestion process. Most white breads are not that high in calories, they usually range about 75 calories per slice or a little above; whole wheat on the other hand, is lower in
calories at only 60 per slice. Keeping bread inside of a bread box will make your bread last longer at room temperature than keeping it out on the counter. You can also wrap a freshly baked loaf of bread with wax paper and keep it in the
refrigerator; this keeps it from getting mold on it and helps it stay fresh longer as well..

HEALTH BENEFITS:

There are many health benefits of eating whole wheat bread, not just the high content of fiber. Whole wheat bread is also loaded with vital nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and niacin’s that are very important to your health and weight maintenance as well. Studies have shown that women who eat
whole wheat instead of white breads weigh much less and are better able to maintain their healthier weights.

Inflammation is lessened by people who eat healthy wheat breads on a regular basis and the risk of type 2 diabetes and heart diseases are lowered too.
Wheat bread keeps your digestive system on track and decreases problems of the gastrointestinal tracts. The fiber content within wheat breads has been shown to protect women of pre-menopausal age against cancer within the breasts. The women in these studies ate at least 30 grams per day.
These breads will be of great benefit to your heart in several ways. Cholesterol can be lowered; blood pressure and glucose levels can be regulated also.

The bread which is the healthiest for you can be found by checking the back label to see which ingredients are included in them. For the best health benefits from bread, either stone ground or whole grains should be the first on the ingredient label, not enriched. The bread should not contain high
fructose corn syrup but be sweetened by the use of honey or a molasses instead, as these are healthy natural types of sweeteners. The salt and these sweeteners should be towards the bottom of the ingredient label for the healthiest benefits.  Look for breads which don’t include preservatives or types of
additives in them as these are not very healthy. These breads can be kept just as fresh without these additional chemicals by just closing properly and refrigerating the loaf.
