Suji Chapati and Bael ka Sherbet: Healthy Cooking
I had a yoga and meditation session today. I was feeling tooo good after the session that I decided to eat something really light and healthy for the dinner. The session got over at 6:00 PM, I had a glass of freshly prepared bael ka sherbet with no added sugars at 6:30PM. Bael ka sherbet is an excellent source of fiber. It is very good for diabetics. And a panacea for constipation. It can even ease chronic constipation hence it is also very good for skin.
Method of Prepration
1. Open the bael and remove the pulp.
2. Soak the pulp in water and mesh it properly in the water.
3. Strain the mixture through a muslin cloth.
4. Discard the pulp and retain the sherbet
5. Serve chilled
We are already aware of the health benefits of suji. We also know it is so light on the stomach. It is rich in Vitamin B, beta carotene, zinc, magnesium, proteins, dietary fiber. We should have suji to build immunity, to complete our protein requirement and to add natural fiber to our meal.
I did not know that we can make chapatis out of suji. Even when I was told that suji can be kneaded easily with water to form a thick tight dough, I did not believe it. I gave it a try today and had it with half a spoon of home made, desi ghee.
Look wise and preparation wise the suji chapati came out so perfect, just like a normal wheat chapati. Also, it tasted yumm. I got over with my dinner at 7:30 PM. It got digested super fast and now I feel so light and energetic :). I loved it. Try it sometime, hope you will love it too
Method Of Preparation
1) Grind normal suji/rawa/semolina to make a very fine powder.
2) Knead this powder with water, to form a dough. The way you knead normal chapati.
The dough looks like this
3) Make chapatis out of it. Simple :). Spread some desi ghee over it. It smells and tastes soo nice.
