Mango Lassi/Mango-Yoghurt

When a man cut his hair short,she wanted to cut her hair short.When a man joined the army,she wanted to join the army.She wanted these things for no other reason than because the “standard” had them.

What she didn’t recognize was that god dignifies both men and women in their distinctiveness –not in their sameness.When we accept men as the standard,suddenly anything uniquely feminine becomes by definition infereior.Being sensitive in as insult, becoming a full-time mother-a degradation.In the battle between stoic rationally(considered masculine)and selfless compassion(considered feminine),rationally reigned supreme.ven our privilages women,we only degrade ourselves by trying to be something we are not-and in all honesty-don’t want to be:a man.As women,we will never reach true liberation until we stop trying to mimic men,and value the beauty in our god-given distinctiveness.

The above piece of writing is from my favorite book(Reclaim your Heart)written by Yasmin Mogahed.I’ve been following her on facebook and have loved her writing that make us to think and rethink about our existence.Her words penetrate in to our heart & take us near to the God.May Allah give her healthy & long life so people like us will gain more and more benefits!!!Ameen

Now,moving to the recipe part this is North Indian Recipe and relished by every Indian.;)
Mangoes and yoghurt is best combo to quench your thirst.Enjoy the best ever mango lassi before the mango season go!

Whole Red Lentil Curry/Masoor Dal Recipe

Whole Red lentils(Sabut Masoor Daal)are brown skinned and inside orange colour.It is healthy, nutritious and loaded with protein. Lentils are good source of iron.
Summer is best season to cook lentils and eat vegetables.When I was kid,my Abbu always tell us during summer eating light food is good for health.Now,I have experienced after eating non-vegan we feel thirstier and sweat a lot. Because heavy foods require more,time to digest.
This is my favourite Daal and learned from my Ammi,so enjoy the healthy meal.
