Mangalore Cucumber Sambar/Bannada Sauthekayi Huli

Oh Mind, Relax please!!! Stop Setting Yourself On Fire..Put an end to all the waves which Rises in you and Stop Chasing the Aimless Thoughts which Wanders like a Dog around you..

Where does the stress come from? Does it come from our boss, kids, traffic jams, bad relationships? The answer is 'No'....It doesn't come from any of these, it comes only from our thoughts about these circumstances...We are what our Thoughts have made us, they can make us feel Pleased and Pained and can Create Hell and Heaven Inside Us....

What exactly these thoughts are? These are some thing which shapes us, which follows us like a shadow and some times even haunts us like a freaking ghost...Most of the time we try to identify our self with these flickering thoughts,We Erratically take actions based on our Herky-Jerky Thoughts

One realization  which startled me is that we are the creator of these thoughts...we have the remote to choose and play the good thoughts on our mind...Hence the happiness depends on the quality of our thoughts...so it is time to take care of what we think remember words are secondary,Thoughts Travel Far....Lets guard them, nourish them and  produce the most beautiful thoughts......

Keeping the train of good thoughts flowing Today I prepared  My Most Favorite Recipe..Mangalore Cucumber Sambar(Mangaluru sauthekayi huli)

Modaka!!

One Beautiful sunny morning I was beaming with pride when I realized I have mastered the art of riding two wheeler, the joy knew no bounds...Every horn I heard seemed magical and musical to my ears.. All passer-by on the  road looked Familiar and Friendlier....The turns and twists I took looked smoother and Nicer....There wasn't a better day than this, when once this heavy bulldozer now feels like a lighter and flakier cute vehicle. All the meticulous traffic rules, hand signals and gestures now seems like a 'Cake walk'....

Now I can say I know the meaning of ' Why should Boys have all the Fun'.. I sincerely thanked and sent salutations to those who helped me in this venture. Gliding and Riding went on for some time Until I heard a familiar sound in the back ground and a well know voice said 'Can you dismiss your alarm"? 'Its been buzzing since long time'.. I raised the accelerator but in vain and realized it was a  'Dream'....

I applaud myself for at least  trying and conquering fears to some extent... I Beseech Lord  Vinayaka to ward off any obstacle and hence bless me in this new venture ..... 'Hope is life' hence I never lose hope on me and continue to chase my Dream... I treated myself with good food for this Nobel thought.....Hence my today's post is dedicated to the people like me who Refuse to Give Up.....

Ganesh Chaturthi Special Modaka:
These are sweet dumplings prepared exclusively on Ganesha Festival.. Lord Ganesha is extremely fond of sweets hence he is also called as 'Modaka Priya'.... This Traditional recipe calls for Maida and sweet filling....Since we are in this Health Conscious Era I decided to Offer Lord the Healthy Version Of Modaka, that is the whole wheat Modaka...

Life Indeed Seems Beautiful and Beaming with these tiny tots who are full of Joy .Their Innocence is a Mirror to see god, their honesty is a way to reach god and their ever smiling face is a path to one's heart...We as adults and so called Self-Regulators need to Perceive life through their eyes ,embrace life with a child-like attitude and  should learn to accept the 'Present' with Grace...

Thanks Mava for the Wonderful Recipe.....

Before posting this recipe I did a lot research on the Health benefits of Amla...One very Important and Interesting thing I found was that the Vitamin 'C ' present in the amla is of Heat Stable Form hence it doesn't get lost during the processing....This is one of the main reasons it is an essential ingredient in the preparation of the very popular Ayurvedic  Medicine  Chyavanaprasha......
