Keerai Poriyal | Greens Stir Fry | Side Dish for Rice

keerai, greens stir fry, side dish for rice, ponnagani keerai stir fry, grrens recipes, greens stir fry, keerai poriyal, keerai recipes, ponnagani keerai recipes, easy keerai recipes, keerai stir fry
Simple and tasty way of making greens is greens stir fry. I am not a big fan of greens, but my mom and dad are..so when ever we have lunch with greens my dad keeps talking about the goodness of greens and how healthy he is by including it in his diet. Yet, I never care to eat greens. But now I am forced to include greens in my diet due to health concerns and I very much regret for not eating it these many days when my mom made varieties of greens as they are really tasty and not as bad as I thought it would be. Now I like making greens but the most lazy part is to clean it!!!

It is a guest post on my blog this time from Remya of Remmy's Kitchen. Blogging introduced good friends to me and she is one such friendly sister I got through blogging.

Muskmelon Juice Recipe | Mulam Pazham Juice | Summer Drinks

Juice Recipes, Muskmelon Fruit, Summer Drinks, weight loss drink, easy muskmelon juice, tasty juices, kids juices, easy summer drinks, weight loss juices, energizer drinks, workout drinks
Muskmelon or Cantaloupe is a best summer fruit. It's high water content makes it equal for the fluid loss from the body by perspiration in heat.  

I am now counting on my calories with mobile apps and I am happy being muskmelon way!!! As muskmelon juice is also a perfect weight loss drink I would say only when no sweetener is added :P, it makes you feel full and is full of dietary fibre. So, it acts as a good tasty drink when hunger tugs you towards unhealthy foods.

I prefer the spicy way, so instantly tried this recipe when I saw my favourite cook's recipe. :) And it turns out amazing each time that I have stopped making the way I used to make the mushroom sukka!!  Mine was a very simple and kid friendly version which I will post soon!!!
