    Dear friends,
    India is becoming the diabetic capital of the world.Here is a recipe to reduce cholestrol and risk of heart disease and good for even diabetics to take occasionally.
    Though these days garlic is beginning to be used by many,though in small quantities, it may be left out of the recipe for those who do not use it.


    Despite belonging to the nut family and having its share of quirks, almonds have their share of health benefits they lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Note that Ive used toasted almonds and not fried them, so as to keep a check on the calorie count. Plus, the vegetables contribute abundant nutrients to this dish making it absolutely fine to have as an occasional treat, even diabetics.

    Preparation Time: 15 mins
    Cooking Time: 5 mins
    Makes 4 servings


    2 tsp oil
    1 whole dry kashmiri red chilli , broken into pieces
    2 tsp grated ginger (adrak)
    2 tsp grated garlic (lehsun)
    1/2 cup carrot cubes , boiled
    1/2 cup green capsicum cubes
    1/2 cup boiled sweet corn kernels (makai ke dane)
    1/2 cup bean sprouts
    1/2 cup thinly sliced spring onions whites
    1/2 cup mushroom slices
    1/2 cup low fat paneer (cottage cheese) cubes
    1/2 cup pak choi cubes
    1/4 cup finely chopped spring onion greens
    1 cup vegetable stock
    salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    2 tsp cornflour dissolved in 2 tbsp water
    1/4 cup toasted almond slices
    3 cups cooked whole wheat noodles


    Heat the oil in a wok on a high flame, add the red chilli pieces and stir till it turns black. Remove and discard the chilli pieces.
    Add the ginger and garlic in the same oil and stir-fry for a minute.
    Add the carrots, green capsicum, sweet corn kernels, bean sprouts, spring onion whites and stir-fry for a couple of minutes.
    Add the mushrooms, paneer, chinese cabbage and spring onion greens and stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes.
    Add vegetable stock, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
    Add the cornflour mixture and heat till the mixture thickens.
    Add the almond slices, mix gently and serve immediately on a bed of cooked whole wheat noodles.

      The other is bean sprouts.--முளைவிட்ட பீன்ஸ்.அவ்வளவே.
      I feel as long as we continue to be vegetarians,one should not harp around for Idly,Dosa,sambar wherever we go .There are hundreds of veg items from Mexico,Spain,italy,china,even Ethiopia. One should try them and relish the taste.
      That is my opinion,don't you agree?

        You are right sir but normally we all have a sort of doubt when we see a new item as to how it would be and what effect it would creat etc.,
