Wheat + Rye roti

Yoga friend gave me a pack of organic rye flour . She either didn’t know what to do with it or she thought it’s gluten free but turned out it has gluten. She knows how I try new recipes so she gave it to me . Since it has gluten I thought it’s easy to make roti with it. I also like rye bread so this was easy.

I used 1 cup wheat flour from Indian store and may be 3/4th cup rye flour. Made roti as usual and they turned out good. It was easy to roll them. Didn’t feel any taste difference.

Try it out. Rye flour is easy to find.

Note: Rye here is different than rye(mustard seeds). Rye is a grain.



Dilute Juice

Most of the Juices are very sweet, aren’t they? I buy carrot juice from stores and it’s only carrot nothing else . Still very sweet.

So what I started doing is half carrot juice and half water. This is good now . I drink carrot juice because it helps me with the cycle.

Now I can keep enjoying carrot juice .


Bitter Gourd Chips

Do you taste bitter flavor every day? We should have all flavors everyday for all body to functions to happen. Bitter has drying and firming effect. Bitter gourd chips is yummy way to have little bitter in. There are lots of recipes out there. Here’s how I made it:

  • Wash and trim top, bottom of bitter gourd. Scrape the surface little bit if it’s hard. Try to pick tender bitter gourds.
  • Slice them thin using mendoline. If there’s any red seeds , remove it.
  • Make a mixture with rice flour , chickpea flour, red chili powder, turmeric, chat masala and salt.
  • Sprinkle over chips and sprinkle just a little water.
  • Deep fry them.
  • Nice yummy due to chat masala and of course its nicely bitter .
  • Well, we just need to eat few .
  • I also bought a ready made pack at Indian store and they were really good with just a hint of bitterness but of course more greasy. Home made is more bitter.
  • As we enjoy bitter flavor, we also need to learn to enjoy bitter words.
  • Enjoy!
