Dish-A-Day: 04/21/2012 - Lemon Barley Drink

Prologue: Go here.

04/21/2012: Lemon Barley Drink - I have a bottle of Barley seeds at home and have been neglecting to use them for a while. So here is the first of the dish that I made with Barley, a Lemon Barley Drink. A nutritious drink when taken in the morning! Tip: Use less lemon and more honey for yummy taste.
Recipe: Wash 1/2 a cup of Barley by pouring hot water over it. This will make the drink clear. In a sauce pan, add this cleaned Barley, 4 cups of cold Water and few pieces of Lemon Rind. Cover and simmer for 25 mins on low flame. Strain it into a jug. Add 2 tbl spoons of honey and juice from 1/2 a Lemon. Mix well and chill. Serve with floating Lemon Slices. To be consumed within 24 hours.

Dish-A-Day: 04/22/2012 - Happy Earth Day!

Prologue: Go here.

04/22/2012: Happy Earth Day! - On this Earth Day, I celebrate with these little seeds of sweet and sour. Pomegranate, rich in Vitamins and good for heart, came in a very sour taste this last time I bought. I mixed it with some chat masala and sugar turning it into a yummy snack. BTW why for an Earth Day? Well, the speciality of cooking dishes for Earth Day is to do by using no fire or flame that is cause by electricity. Fruits are the best source that way! All this an attempt to save the world a little more. Although I never could understand one thing - saving the world by switching off electricity for an hour once a year. If we need to save world, why not put little things into practice everyday, instead of doing it for an hour once a year? Never could understand that fact!
