Hi Sati!  My salad consists of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, carrots, red radish chopped finely, bell peppers and sprouted moong beans, with salt and ground black pepper and lemon juice dressing.  I made the same thing today also, then I also made dal using the sprouts and cauliflower curry, with chapathis for dinner.  I had two chapathis, with all the side dishes, and for lunch we had rice with sambar, rasam, sprouts curry, salad and tomato raita, and I stuck with about 4 tbsps of rice, and added lots of cooked dhal to it, so it would fill me up.  Then I had two helpings of curds and salad.  I have had two slices of bread for breakfast and another slice in the evening, which is probably, sorry, definitely, bad.  I will try to be better tomorrow!

How has your day been going?  Oh, I forget, today is your vrat day.  Mine is tomorrow.

Eljay and Sati, you guys are doing great with your dieting.  But when you are following a diet is it good to go on a fast? 
 
Had oats for breakfast and having cabbage salad, rasam and 1 small cup of rice for lunch. Dinner is likely to be dhal ,2 phulkas and 1 cup curd.

So what is dholkas and phulkas? Big smile
 
Eljay, you can have as much as bread as you want, only if it is wholemeal bread.  Multi grains is a no-no.  Only a slice or two.  Btw, the bread has lesser calories, if the crusts is removed.  (Just read it last week)

Caryn, phulkas are rotis that are first cooked on a tawa and then grilled so that they puff up on both sides, and eaten without ghee.  Dhoklas are Gujarati variations on our idlis, made with kadalai paruppu or with rice and urad dal, and steamed, cut into squares and then seasoned with kadugu and green chilies and perunkayam, not as healthy as our idlis but yummy!  I usually don't eat the kadalai paruppu kind because it produces too much gas, and I hate the discomfort.

Actually, I have been using unbleached whole wheat flour, available at our local grocery stores, to make my rotis.  I mix it with the chapathi flour available at the Indian store, and while it may not be as soft as the regular flour alone, it should be healthier.  I am also using this unbleached flour when I bake my bread.

Thanks for the tip about the crust.  I will definitely remove it from now on.

I don't know if any of you have ever tried this dish.  I make it with radish keerai, which I chop finely.  Heat some oil, fry chopped garlic, then add chopped radish greens, salt and turmeric powder, and fry for a few minutes.  Add water and cook.  When the keerai is cooked, add cooked thuvar dhal, let it all come to a boil together.  Season with mustard seeds and hing, and squeeze lemon juice.  I read somewhere that radish greens are very nutritious, and are good sources of ???, and since I try to incorporate greens into our diet at least three times weekly, today I made this keerai kootu and cabbage curry, and both of them are greens!

Thanks Eljay
 
Very hardly we get radish keerai here and most likely we discard them.  Embarrassed  But we cook other keerais with the style you have mentioned.
