Mani Gulab salad & Mango (leaves) tea

Here are two recipes which I have noted from "Theneer neram'- a cookery show which i saw on Podhigai(tamil) channel. These recipes were demonstrated by S.R. Kishore kumar.

Mani Gulab Salad (immunizes you from cold and cough)


Petals of paneer rose ( not the regular rose) ------1/2 cup(good for internal organs(heart,lungs,kidney) keeps the skin radiant and is a good toner.

Ripe manathakkali ------ 15-20 fruits (cures mouth ulcer,good digestive aid)For more info on Manathakkali see here

Yogurt ------------ 1 cup( thick curd to be filtered in a muslin cloth and the residue is to be used)

Honey /Jaggery syrup

Paneer rose petals to be mixed with yogurt and blended well. To this add the honey syrup and sprinkle with ripe manathakkali.

(Note well: Don't use the regular rose petals, it might be coated with pesticides. Wash the petals thoroughly)

The above salad immunizes you against cold and coughs.

The second recipe is a hot concoction of mango leaves,tulsi and green tea which is rich in anti-oxidants.

Mango Green tea

Tender mango leaves ------- 1 tea spoon(kills bacteria, helps to regain stamina post fever)

Tulsi leaves ------------------ 5-6 leaves

Green tea --------------------- ½ teaspoon

Panam karkand/palm sugar( catch its properties here)

Boil 1 cup of water, to this add the mango leaves and allow it to boil for 5 minutes and switch off the stove.
Now add tulsi leaves & green tea. Cover it with a lid for 2 minutes.

Filter the tea and sweeten it with cane sugar
