Welcome to the world of simple and easy recipes...

We, the ‘aakrantham crew’ extend our special greetings to the beginners in cooking, the novice Bachelors, suffering husbands for being the guinea pig of wife’s culinary experimentations and the most sophisticated cooking experts who, out of their intricate and above-average try-outs have forgotten their beginning point in cooking. Yes! Our aim is to show the simplified paths of cooking, to depict the formulae for day-to-day needs to kill the hunger, to help out someone who is completely new to kitchen and those whose breaths stop hearing the name of dishes with words like ‘forelle’, ‘pecam’, ‘oreo’, ‘agua’ e.t.c in it.

My dad’s ‘Diesel Water’

Here’s a dietary and herbal daily drink for those who suffers from health problems like high blood pressure, cholesterol, acidity, diabetics e.t.c. because of its diesel like color, my dad used to call it ‘The Diesel water’. I trust this will help at least few of you.

Water – 2 litres
Gooseberry – mashed without seed – 1 no.s
Fenugreek seeds – 2 tsp
Pudina leaves – 1 stem
Curry leaves – 3-4 stems
Garlic mashed with skin – 6 cloves
Fennel seeds – 2 tsp (Optional)

How to:
1.Heat water in a saucepan and add the ingredients gooseberry, fenugreek seeds, pudina leaves and curry leaves to the water and leave it to boil for few minutes. Fennel seeds can also be added to the boiling water if you have flatulence problems too.

2.Separate the water from the ingredients using a sieve. Dispose the solid contents and leave the water to cool down. Have this medicinal drink at least 2 glasses daily. This will surely control your Cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar from increasing and protect your stomach from any inflammatory or indigestive diseases.

Medicinal values:

  • Garlic is claimed to help prevent heart disease (including atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure) and cancer.
  • Fennel is widely employed as a carminative, both in humans and in veterinary medicine (e.g., dogs), to treat flatulence by encouraging the expulsion of intestinal gas.
  • The anti-diabetic effects of Fenugreek seeds ameliorate most metabolic symptoms associated with type-1 and type-2 diabetes by reducing serum glucose and improving glucose tolerance.
  • Gooseberry seems to work by reducing total cholesterol levels, including the fatty acids called triglycerides, without affecting the “good cholesterol” called high-density lipoprotein (HDL).
  • Curry Leaves are much valued as an anti-diabetic, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, anti-hypercholesterolemic etc. 
  • Mint leaf is an excellent remedy for reducing symptoms related to digestion.
