In context I would like to share a piece of writing that I read few days back about ‘Bliss’. It goes like this….
Learning an instrument, appreciating beautiful surroundings and relishing time with friends could be as important to your mental health as eating fruit and vegetables is to your physical well-being. A team of over 400 eminent scientists have identified 5 key areas that can help people lead happier, more fulfilled lives. Physical activity is high on the list, but the other feel good strategies they identify include learning new things, developing strong relationships, being curious and appreciative of the world around you, and doing things to help others…simple changes that could make all the difference to your state of mind…
Fresh whole milk – 1 Cup
Elachi/ cardamom powder – ¼ tspn
Sugar is optional
- Wash mango, peel the skin and squeeze the whole mango in hand to collect the pulp into a bowl (Do not completely puree the fruit). Discard the seed what we call it as vaate in Kannada.
- Add milk and mix well. Next add cardamom powder and mix well with a spoon.
All Set....It couldn’t be any easier :).
Serving suggestions: This is generally served with chapathis. Some of them like to have as an accompaniment with holige/pooran poli.
You could also blend everything and chill it and serve as a drink.
Get into the spirit of season and enjoy the little essentials in life :) !!!
