I have been wanting to share this healing, healthy recipe that I learnt from my mother that will be helpful to many of you . Been postponing it as I always forget to take a good picture to post here. Earlier I had shared my Arisi Kanji / Rice porridge recipe for stomach bug. I am sure you will agree that there will be some days when you suffer from lack of appetite or acidity. Here is a home remedy that my mother always makes and I follow the recipe diligently . A healing recipe that can be made within a few minutes. Do you know that Shallots has numerous health benefits. They are anti- inflammatory and have lots of anti oxidants. Including shallots in our daily diet is highly beneficial for good health. Similarly Ghee/clarified butter is an ayurvedic medicine.
Peeling of the shallots will take more time than cooking the shallots.
For those who find peeling the sambar onion/shallots very tedious, here is a useful tip. Boil 2 cups of water and then add the shallots to it. Switch off and immediately, drain the boiling water. Pour cold water/tap water over the onions and you will find it easy to peel the shallots.
