Kanji is a liquid extract of a food - usually rice, black carrots or mustard. This is a Marwadi delicacy of moong dal wadas, soaked in mustard flavoured kanji. The kanji has to be made at least a day in advance so that all the flavours are released into the water. Mustard kanji is usually enjoyed in the winter, as mustard is a food which produces heat in the body. Serve plenty of kanji with the vada so that one can enjoy a large sip of the kanji once the vada is polished off.

Preparation Time: 1 day.   

Cooking Time: 15 mins.   

Serves 4


For the kanji
1/4 cup split mustard seeds (rai na kuria)
1 tbsp black salt (sanchal)
1 1/2 tsp chilli powder
salt to taste

For the vadas
2 1/2 cups yellow moong dal (split yellow gram), soaked for 4 hours
1 tsp ginger-green chilli paste
1/2 tsp fennel seeds (saunf)
1/2 tsp asafoetida (hing)
salt to taste

Other ingredients
oil for deep-frying

For the kanji

Combine all the ingredients and grind to a fine powder.
Dissolve this powder in 1½ litres of water, cover and keep refrigerated for 24 hours to allow all the flavours to blend.

For the vadas

  • Drain and grind the moong dal to a coarse paste using very little water.
  • Add the green chilli-ginger paste, fennel seeds, asafoetida and salt and mix well.
  • Wet your hands, take 2 tablespoons of the dal paste on your palm or on a sheet of wet plastic and shape into a circle of 25 mm. (1") diameter. Repeat with the remaining paste.
  • Deep fry in hot oil till golden brown in colour.
  • Drain on absorbent paper and cool.

How to proceed

  • Soak the vadas in water for 1 hour.
  • Drain and squeeze out all the water by pressing each vada gently between your palms.
  • Place the vadas in the kanji and allow them to soak for at least 1 hour.

Serve chilled.

This drink is nutritionally health as it is rich in protein and low fat, as all the oil has been drained out due to soaking in water and then draining it out before putting it in kanji.

SO ENJOY !!!!!

Loose Fat rather than Weight
23 March 2016
Are you tired of watching the same weight despite of all your efforts?? Is it more than a month that you are working out, doing everything you can to loose weight, but your weighing machine is not moving even a kg? Stop worrying!!!! Just measure your inches. Watch your clothes carefully. Are they becoming ill fitted? IF yes then you are on a right track. What is Weight and Fat loss??? Weight is all about the weight of your bones, glands, organs, and body fat. Whereas Fat loss is the amount of fat that your body carries. It is this ugly fat that needs to be shed out. One can start eating less and lose weight, fall ill and lose weight, get depressed and lose weight BUT cannot lose fat. So focus on fat loss rather than weight loss. SO WHAT I NEED TO DO? Depending just on the weighing scale won\'t do any good! You will only feel demotivated as our weight is fluctuating all day long depending upon what we have in our stomach, or in the bladder. Hence never weigh yourself daily. If you are losing inches on your waist, your clothes are becoming loose and you are feeling lighter, energetic and fresh, then you are on the right track even if your weight stays the same. Your body is getting into the shape you have ever desired. However, if you feel like starving, energy less and drowsy and losing weight on the scale, you are probably losing more than just fat. As weight can be lost easily through starving or eating less. BUT this kind of weight loss leaves a negative balance that usually bounces back once you start eating or has stopped dieting and crash eating practice. SOME WEIGHT LOSS TIPS ARE HERE. DO TRY THEM Keep yourself hydrated all day long Choose healthy home made snacks rather than eating junk outside Choose seasonal whole fruits rather than fruit juices No need to do heavy exercises in gym, 30 minutes of brisk walking would be enough in a day. Stop fasting and feasting. Always have small and frequent meals rather than just 2 big servings in a day.

Health Tips for Heart, Mind, and Body
07 April 2016
Unhealthy lifestyle. It\'s a common contributor of our biggest health problems: stroke, heart disease, diabetes, cancer. What do the nation\'s top physicians recommend to keep your heart, mind, and body in optimally good health? 2. Healthy diet. Quit eating junk food and high-fat fast food. Your heart, brain, and overall health are harmed by foods high in saturated fats, salt, and cholesterol. There\'s no getting around it. You\'ve got to replace them with healthy foods: lots of fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, olive oil.   4. Regular physical exams. Tell your doctor your family medical history. Learn your personal risk factors, and the screening tests you need. Women may have mammograms to screen for breast cancer and Pap tests for cervical cancer. Men may have prostate cancer PSA tests. Routine screening for colorectal cancer should start at age 50, perhaps earlier if colon cancer runs in your family. You also need regular diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol tests. Make sure your immunizations are up to date. You may need flu and pneumonia shots, depending on your age.   <img alt="\&quot;\&quot;" data-cke-saved-src="\" src="\&quot;/uploads/gallery/45b9286d3c43405ceea31f47c09a2006/images/take-a-breath.jpg\&quot;" style="\&quot;width:" 275px;="" height:="" 183px;\"="">   Readers can click here to see some healthy probiotic supplements http://www.reviews.com/probiotic-supplement/
