Ingredients:

Serving number – 3 persons

Urad dal – 1/4 cup

Fenugreek seeds – 1 teaspoon

Jaggery – 1/2 cup

First soak the Urad dal and fenugreek for atleast 4 hours and grind it into a fine paste in a grinder or mixer jar.

Take it in a cup and add triple the amount of water into it, ie. If the batter comes around 1/2 cup add 1 1/2 cup of water, mix well with water to make the thick paste into thin.

Add water like this, there should be no lumps.so stir well.

The batter mix should be in this consistency, watery. So that it wouldn’t get burnt while stiring.

Keep it on the stove, stir continuously, till ur hands begins to pain. Actually, I add some extra water in between.

Like this, check whether the raw smell of the urad dal goes off, if the raw smell is still, stir again . Now add jaggery to this.

After adding jaggery the color of the urad dal will be like this. Make sure the jaggery dissolves well.

How to season and use iron kadai under 30 mins

Hi uravugaley, in this fast spinning world, we are always like and love to use instant product for cooking as well as eating , we merely forgot our ancestors and their habits.

Our ancestors, use some metal cookwares for cooking foods, like iron, copper, clay pot. Nowadays we are very likely to use nonstick cookwares.

Those metal cookwares have health benefits in their own.

Cast Iron pot:

  • It is a natural nonstick utensil without Teflon coating.
  • It release iron to food, so that it helps in fight against anaemia.
  • Very easy to clean.

Clay pot:

  • It has an ability to circulate steam, so it provides plenty of moisture, which results in less oil and fat.
  • It is a natural detox, it also contains Vitamin B12.
  • Reheating the food leads to loss nutrition, but in clay pot there is no need of reheating, because of slow cooking.

Seasoning an Iron kadai :

Lets immerse into the process of seasoning an Iron kadai. First take ur kadai and check the rusting level, some kadai has lots of rust, so be careful while cleaning.

Thankfully my kadai has less rust, I bought this kadai in Bigbazaar, original price of this kadai is 480/Rs,in offer I got this for 199/Rs only.

I’m not fancy about buying cookwares in malls. But I like this offer, so that I grab it.

After checking, wash your kadai with a soft scrubber and a mild dishwasher soap, don’t scrape it hardly. Wash 2 to 3 times.

After washing keep the kadai in low flame in stove, it helps in open the micro pore in kadai.

After heating put some castor oil in the kadai, and add some roughly chopped onion into this.

With a laddle saute the onion. While sauteing,spread the onion and oil throughout the pan with steel spoon.

Like this.

My kadai has less rust, so after sauteing it, Onion turns to golden brown. but some kadai has more rust, if u saute onion into that it becomes black within a second.

The process of sauteing onion is to take off the remaining rust in the kadai after washing. Throw off the onion. Now your kadai is ready to use.

DIY for chickenpox scars

Hello uravugaley , this is my first post in my blog,I need all your support.

Because of the drastic weather, I was affected by chickenpox in March end. This is the very first time for me to get chickenpox. By the grace of God, I have only little scars in my face, but it looks black and noticeable, so that I want to fade it, before it get worse. So here I’m going to share my diy with u all, to fade the shade of scars.

First I use natural gold ie. “Almond” for this diy.

Almonds are rich in vitamin- E, it nourishes and softens skin, it also has anti-inflammatory properties, that helps in healing skin problems.

Burning almond also good for face, this time, I’m going to use burnt almond for this. To burnt an almond, place the almond on the fire, like this, one almond is enough for 5 to 6 scars.

I use tweezer to keep the almond on the burner
Place it like this on the stove

Let’s keep the almond in the burner for 5 mins, don’t forget to turn it into other side. So that it gets burnt both the sides.

After burning crush the almond into nice powder using tartar.

Crushed powder of burnt almond

To add more healing properties to this diy, I use wild turmeric (kasthuri manjal) into it, don’t use powdered wild turmeric, use it in raw form.

Wild turmeric

Let’s scrub the wild turmeric in the scrubbing stone. To make it a paste use little water.so that we will get the desired consistency.if u have no wild turmeric, just use the charcoal and almond oil.

Scrubbed wild turmeric

Now it’s time to mix and explore our DIY, mix the charcoal of almond with wild turmeric paste.now add almond oil to this mixture, I’m using well’s almond oil.

Well’s almond oil

Let mix all together to make a paste, wash your face and pat dry, ur face should be always clean, before apply any DIY.After cleaning your face, gently apply this paste on your scars like a dot.

Paste of all the ingredients

Start working on to ur face, surely u will see visible results,use this diy continuously for 10 days or ur scars begins to fade, after 10 days, I will share my result.some chickenpox scars are light, some are strong, so it depends on the depth of scars, but in my face, I have light scars.

Dot this paste like this

After applying the paste, wait for 30 mins, wash it of with warm water or wipe it of with clean cloth, don’t use any cream after this, go to sleep after washing this, almond oil in the paste moisturise ur skin.

This diy is my own finding , I’m using this to fade away my scars, after using this for only 2 days, I found visible result, you can also use it for pimple scars, for tender scars 10 days is enough, for long stayed scars, it will take some time to heal, so be patient.Pls share ur feedback through comment. Have a nice day uravugaley.
