Orange Colada

Orange Colada is very simple and interesting drink which is good
option to serve in front of guest in summer season.  Under this recipe, we blend all ingredients
together and serve in chilled long glass. This drink is little thick in consistency
but less than smoothie or shake. Orange is citrus fruit which is great source
of vitamin c. Nutrients in oranges are plentiful and diverse. The
fruit is low in calories, contains no saturated fats or cholesterol, but is
rich in dietary fiber, pectin, which is very effective in persons
with excess body weight. Oranges,
like other citrus fruits, is an excellent source. Vitamin C is a powerful
natural antioxidant. Consumption of foods rich in vitamin C helps body develop
resistance against infectious agents and scavenge harmful,
pro-inflammatory free radicals from the blood. It
is also a very good source of B-complex vitamins such as thiamin,
pyridoxine, and folates. These vitamins are essential in the sense that body
requires them from external sources to replenish.
Ingredients:
Orange soft drink
Orange ice-cream
Orange syrup
Ice- cubes
Orange wedges for garnishing
Directions:
Combine all ingredients together and blend it. Serve this drink in
chilled glass and garnish with orange wedge.

Tomato Pachadi

This time I chose
Tomato Pachadi from My Kitchen Trials hosted by Raajani, under this recipe, we
cooked tomatoes with sugar and nuts. Mostly pachadi are savoury in taste as my
knowledge but this time we made completely sweet in taste. It’s just like jam
or spread. You can spread this pachadi on bread and prantha. I serve this pickle with Chop Chop Chapati.
Pachadi refers to a traditional South
Indian side-dish. Broadly translated, it refers to food which has been
pounded. The definition of the word ‘Pachadi’ is different among different
South Indian regions. While in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, pachadi is
a side-dish curry similar to the north Indian Raita, in Andhra
Pradesh, pachadi is a fresh pickle and has very low shelf life, a maximum of
two or three days. It is made of fresh vegetables and is served as an
accompaniment for rice, snacks like idli, dosa, and pesarattu. Many kinds of
vegetables are included. In the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, pachadi is
eaten fresh and typically made of finely chopped and boiled vegetables with coconut,
green or red chillies and tempered in oil with mustard seeds, ginger and
curry leaves. Pachadi is commonly eaten with rice and a lentil curry.
