Fish Curry Recipe / Meen Kulambu Recipe

Hi friends,
                 Fish Curry is a popular recipe in South India. It is always cooked with the tamarind and chilli powder.It goes well with rice, iddli or dosa. Usually Fish Curry will be tastier on the next day of the gravy prepared. So we may store it in a refrigerator and consume it in the next day also.
Health benefits of fish:
                 All of us know that fish is a protein rich food. Eating fish is a main source of omega 3 fatty acids which helps us to maintain healthy heart and brain.Decrease the depression and reduce the risk of arthritis.
                My suggestion for the non veg food lovers is to consume more fish food than chicken or mutton to get a healthy heart and a brain. Lets check out the recipe.

Jack Fruit Seed Fry

Hi Friends,
               Jack Fruit Seed Fry is a simple recipe. Usually we all eat the sweet jack fruits and throw away the seeds. We still do not know the health benefits of the Jack Fruit Seeds. They are highly protein rich.And not only that they are anti-cancer, anti- oxidant, anti-hypertensive and anti- ulcer. Why should we throw such a valuable food in the dust bin.

It came out well. Do try and enjoy the benefits.
