Take cooking rice and Channa dal(kadalai parupu), wash it well and soak it for 6 hours. Then grind it to a smooth batter and allow it to ferment overnight, say 7 to 8 hours.
Before making dhokla, to the fermented batter add Lemon juice ,hing, jaggery powder, salt, turmeric powder, ginger green chilly paste (what I did is grounded these two extracted the juice and added that alone into the batter ). Mix everything well. Close this vessel and give a 10 mins resting time.
After 10 mins u can steam these and serve. Can be done in idly mould or Cake tin too. Grease the moulds well before pouring the batter.
After transferring the steamed dhoklas to the plate top it with a simple tadka (curry leaf mustard seeds sesame seeds and grated coconut) and serve it with mint chutney.
For the Mint Chutney, in a mixer grinder bowl take mint leaf, coriander leaf, ginger, garlic, green chilly, little grated coconut, salt and grind it to a smooth paste. Take this to a bowl add water and dilute if needed. Mix little juice and then serve.
In a pan, add oil and add 3 chopped tomatoes, red chilies and salt. Sauté everything until mushy. First powder katti perungayam in mixer and then grind the Chutney along with the fried items and then finally make tadka..
It goes well with idly/dosa/paniyaram/curd rice.. hing gives relief from bloating and helps in good digestion.
When I tried Homemade Sathu Maavu laddoos and shared with my friends and family, I got more requests, motivation and confidence to try other varieties of laddoos. No one cannot say no to these healthy laddoos right? 🙂
This time I tried with Unpolished Whole Urad Dal which I bought from the monthly grocery shopping from HLP Store. We all know how Black Urad helps all the women to strengthen their hip region. This is one of the best dishes for the young girls who are nearing / just attained / started puberty.
Also it can be considered as the ultimate post-workout laddoo for the health conscious people! It has the right amount of minerals, energy for your body!
Here is the recipe I followed for making these yummy and healthy laddoos.
We started using Sathu maavu at our home when my grandma was feeling weak and fatigued. At the same time my sister also delivered a baby, and she was in search for food items that can give her better strength & health.
As preparing of this mavvu/powder at home itself from scratch is time consuming process (sprouting, drying, roasting and powdering), my mom started to use a store-bought famous brand. But we were not satisfied as it increased our body weight.
So, we started to make our own powder at home, and it was super food for babies & adults. As days passed, we couldn’t prepare it due to daily workload, unavailability of people and arranging good quality ingredients.
After I joined HLP community, I understood the importance of avoiding 5 whites and wanted to replace milk at home. I was eagerly waiting for this product in HLP Store, as it is the one place, we could buy trusted products.
I started to make kanji with this sattu mavvu. Sometimes I add ginger, jeera, onions, and fresh coriander leaves and it would be my first drink in the morning after having water on empty stomach. If you have 1 glass of this kanji, you will not feel hungry or fatigue until lunch. Unfortunately, my kids and husband are not very fond of this health mix.
But I wasn’t ready to compromise on their health. Being a mother, you need to learn tweaking healthy foods into whole family’s diet, understanding their taste buds and body needs too. I made laddoos out of it so that they can also enjoy Satthu as healthy snacks.
Heartful gratitude to HLP World Store for bringing this product for us. Hope all start to reap the benefits of this wonderful product.
Sharing the recipe, I followed for making the delicious laddoos. Hope you all try this and share the feedback.
It is observed that when there is a problem with phlegm there appears a severe decrease of Phosphorus in the body. Whenever you experience phlegm first understand the body is lacking phosphorous. Phosphorous has a relative Arsenic. If Arsenic is not there still good as it’s a deadly poison. But when it is present in minute amount this gives strength to phosphorus as its complementary.
In olden days when people were seen suffering from phlegm they were advised to have Jaggery. Jaggery has more Phosphorus than sugar with minute amount of Arsenic which helps in easy absorption. As you all know that jaggery is made from sugar cane juice which also has Phosphorus but being in concentrated form its more and the quality of phosphorus is better in Jaggery compared to sugarcane and is easily digestible and even be given to one day old baby too. So make the habit of eating jaggery to keep the phlegm at bay.
Now question arises, which jaggery to use really as market is flooded with so many options?
In markets generally we found white, brown and copper brown. You need to understand that the more the white jaggery is the more poisonous it is .I remember 10 years back while I was making the payasam(kheer) or porridge my maid said not to use the white version as they add 1 bucket of lime to make the jaggery look white and more appealing it seems and that naturally explained how it spoiled the milk payasam.
Since Britishers invaded India we want everything in white including our food. It is said in nature whatever is more white is not considered healthy and need to be avoided probably that’s why few of you avoid the 5 whites. For example the buffalo milk is not compatible for normal people and its intended for Pahalwans and body builders whereas for us we need to use cow’s milk which is usually yellow in color.
So you have seen that sugar cane juice is not white color and its kind of green in color so how does the white color come from? The white color of the jaggery is from lime. Hence understand that white jaggery is very unhealthy. Now the question is which is the best to use then? Please be informed that the natural color of jaggery is copper color or chocolate colored one. Once the demand ceases the production of white one will also decrease and eventually people with concentrate on natural ones. This will change the supply of white ones.
Coming to sugar though they both are made from the same raw material ie sugar cane juice both have difference of culture really. One is the culture of European nations from where the table sugar originated and the other is Indian from where the jaggery was made.
What basically is the difference is the processing technique involved though the raw material is same for both. Once sugar is made that marks the end of Phosphorus content and its basically sucrose. You need Phosphorus for reducing the phlegm in your body and sugar no longer has it.
Don’t be surprised to know that most of the sugar is refined using bone char or rarely carbon granules.
In the US, sugar companies use predominantly use bone char derived from Cows as they are beef eaters. What is bone char? Bone char is made from animal bones heated at incredibly high temperature and reduced to carbon before being used in a refinery. The sugar does not actually contain bone char particles but it does come in contact with them. Refined sugar does not contain any bone particles. The bone char is used to remove impurities from sugar but does not become part of the sugar though.
I don’t want to go into the deeper aspect of chemistry to explains sugar metabolism in the body but understand that ultimately it becomes acid in the body. Whereas when Jaggery becomes digested its converted to alkali. (Base). As you know our stomach has hydrochloric acid (HCl) already and when sugar metabolism produces acid as the end product this will increase the amount of acid in the body and kidney tries to remove it but after sometime it starts entering the blood stream and eventually these acids causes arthritis in the body. So understand that how much ever you eat jaggery the end product being alkaline balances the acidity of our stomach.
Remember one more thing, it takes long time to digest food when sugar is there and the whole energy is utilized to digest it whereas if you eat jaggery it will facilitate the digestion of all other things present along in the stomach. Ultimately, the take away from this article of mine firstly is to use Jaggery in your daily routine for phlegm ideally better to opt for recipe adaptations and substitution for a hassle-free cooking.
Secondly, people who are fasting for religious reasons to abstain from using table sugars for sugar items as it might have animal bone char. Try to substitute table sugar with cane sugar powder and jaggery so you don’t endure trouble in future.

One of the common questions that is raised in our community is, how do I close my loan sooner? Logically we know the answer. We need to earn more and plan our finance better and follow it with a discipline. The culprit is in the mind and desire. To close the loans and live a stress-free life, we seek for various ancient remedies and various avenues, such as crystals, mantras and yantras. The word EMI is the dangerous word to many people because they earn and pay EMI for life, that’s what Bank wants from you. I have personally undergone these, ever since I quit my job in 2012.
For a working professional it’s kind of easy when it is compared with self-employed or entrepreneur where the income is not stable. Hence our mind is driven into closing the loan all the time and our mind misses to capture the opportunity.Loan is not a new concept; it is was practiced from the time of Barter system. Eg. Alaska was sold to US 🇺🇸by Russia to close their loan they took from them. Now, recently Srilanka 🇱🇰 has taken a huge loan from China in exchange of their ports. So, Sri Lanka is technically a puppet county in the hands of China 🇨🇳 .
When we look at the ancient practices, our siddhas has identified various planetary movements and listed their benefits. Eg. In Ayurveda it is mentioned, on 8th day of a lunar month, it is called as Ashtami Vyadhi Nashini it means, any medicine taken on Ashatami thithi, it will heal faster. In those lines, in order to close your House Loan, Vehicle Loan, Mortgage, Gold Loan, Credit card Loan, etc…Our ancestors has identified a specific Muhurtham called as Maitreya Muhurtham ( MM ).
Do the following on this MM time, and you will close the loan sooner then you expected. This is a proven method I have seen in my life.
On the MM day :
1️⃣ Make a list of loans you have. 2️⃣For each loan, take a portion you had to pay, that totals up to Number 3. Eg. Rs. 3, 12, 21, so on. 3️⃣Make sure there is a coin in the amount you decide to repay. 4️⃣Now place the amount in a sheet of Yellow or Green Cloth. 5️⃣On the four corners of the sheet apply little edible camphor 6️⃣Take a bay leaf. Write your Family deity name and Name of the loan and amount Eg. Ellama, Forest loan, 100 Crores. 7️⃣Now Write following switch words on the leaf WEALTH MONEY DAILY DAILY chant this 31 times. 8️⃣Place the leaf in the sheet over the money 9️⃣Make a packet and keep it in the pooja room or repay the person whom you like to pay. 🔟In case of online, at MM time, just wire the amount after you chant.
Remember This process if done by the women of the house it works amazing. Remember prosperity of the house is in women’s hands . Whichever house has the financial control with woman will flourish and prosper. That is why women is called as Lakshmi, not their counterpart.
Please Note This is not applicable for money lost in gambling, stock market, online betting, business, ancestral property, lending loan to other people and so on.
Maitreya Muhurtham for 2021: 💎 16-8-2021 – From 12.15 PM to 2.26 PM. 💎 27-8-2021 – From 9.06 PM to 10.53 PM. 💎 12-9-2021 – From 10.29 AM to 12.48 PM. 💎 20-9-2021 – From 7.20 PM to 9.07 PM. 💎 10-10-2021 – From 8.39 AM to 10.50 AM. 💎 20-10-2021 – From 5.33 PM to 7.20 PM.

A proper food combination is vital for our health and overall well-being. According to Ayurveda, incompatible foods or Viruddha Ahara is a strong reason for many systemic disorders. Allergy is one of the toxic or side effects of consuming incompatible foods. However, the allergic reaction may not be evident in everyone on every occasion. There are many factors involved in the development of such reactions. But, it continues for a lifetime once you get affected.
Food as Medicine:
Before we dwell on the wrong food combinations, it is essential to understand how the different food combinations work. Because each food item is unique in terms of taste, potency and energy, when different food materials are used together, their effects can be additive, synergistic, or antagonistic.
Additive: Food combination leads to the sum of the effects of individual food component
Synergistic: Food combination leads to a larger effect than expected
Antagonistic: Food Combination leads to a smaller effect than expected.
Toxic: Food combination leads to toxic effects
Wrong Food Combinations:
Honey and Ghee (in equal quantity)
Cooked food with fruits
Milk with fruits
Curd with fruits (Mango Lassi or Smoothies??)
Milk products with greens (Palak Paneer)
Milk with sour, salt, astringent and bitter taste
Green leaf and ginger / dried ginger
Tender coconut water with cooked food
Water or hot water during the meal
Fermented rice with sesame oil
Black gram with sesame oil
Black gram with radish
Black nightshade with pepper / honey / palm jaggery
Millets with milk
Radish with milk/banana
Beans with fruits
Lemon with curds/milk
Milk is incompatible with bananas, cherries, melons, sour fruits and yogurt ( Think before taking milkshakes )
Here is a compilation of affordable and accessible home remedies that will help combat Allergies
