Savoury Oats

Oats the daily breakfast for many is something that I have Indianized to suit our tastes.

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • ½ tsp sambhar masala
  • ½ tsp black salt
  • ¼ cup boiled corn or vegetables of your choice
  • 1 green chilli, chopped fine
  • Salt to taste
  • Dhania/ coriander leaves  to garnish
  • Spring onion greens,to garnish
Savoury Oats

Method:
  • Mix the water, ginger garlic, masala, salts, and vegetables and bring to rolling boil.
  • Add the oats and green chilli.
  • Mix well and switch off.
  • Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.

Notes:

  • I always use Quaker oats but last time I brought Suffola oats and they needed more water.

Home Remedy for Upset Stomach

Home Remedy for Upset Stomach


In continuation with yesterday’s post for home remedies, which work best for minor ailments and something that are called “dadi ki potli” translated as “Granny’s bag”!

These were age old remedies that were practiced from the ingredients on the kitchen shelf.

One such is for an upset stomach. This is what my homeopath has asked us to make and take its effective, highly effective. Actually its two remedies, one as I said is for upset tummy and the other is for urine infection both  flush your   tract without causing you much discomfort.

 Home Remedy for Upset Stomach

Ingredients:
  • 1 tblspn jeera/cumin seeds
  • 2 cups water

Method:
  • Boil the water and the jeera till the water reduces to 1 cup.
  • Cool it and drink.
  • Repeat 3-4 times a day.


Similarly for urine infection use dhania/ coriander seeds in place of jeera seeds.
In fact the dhania water ‘therapy’ was used by one of my friends who had a lot of problem and she has happily said that “it’s wonderful.”

Home Remedies for Cough and Cold Honey and Lemon

Home Remedies for Cough and Cold Honey and Lemon 

My kids do not easily take to home remedies. They distrust them and look at them as some torture weapons that I have in my arsenal.

In fact once when my elder one was small she had severe stomachache, and I had a tough time convincing her and her father that warming ajwain in a kitchen napkin over a tava, then lightly applying it to the tummy will relieve the kid of pain.I am sorry to say I lost my temper with both of them. But when the kid felt better both of them grudgingly accepted that I know some medicine.

Then her pediatrician told them that some of the home remedies are good and she listed out some of them the chief being hot water and lemon with honey for a cold.

I love to add tulsi/holy basil when I am boiling the water. In Goa when a child is small they also add black raisins called pasa here. 

I make this and have a lot of takers now that it has the doctor’s seal.
Home Remedies for Cough and Cold Honey and Lemon 

Honey and Lemon 

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ cup water
  • 4-5 leaves of tulsi/holy basil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tblspn honey
  • 4-5 black raisins (if using)

Method:
  • Boil the water with the black raisins (if using) and tulsi leaves reduce it to 1 cup.
  • Add the honey and lemon stir well.
  • Drink up hot.

Note:
  • Never heat lemon juice as boiling water breaks up the Vit. C molecules hence add to the water in the end.
