Vati and Gutika Kalpana.

A Sunday is a great day to make Eladi Vati.

Vati is a preparation where different medicinal substances are used to make tablets (vati) and pills (gutika). This is done either by cooking the powdered herbs with jaggery or guggulu or without cooking by macerating the powder with any liquid like honey and guggulu and then rolled into pills. They are made of one or more drugs of a plant, animal or mineral origin.

At Lakshmi’s kitchen we have prepared Eladi Vati/ Eladi Gutika

Chestnuts are warm, sweet and slightly astringent. They are nourishing for the body, boost the immune system (increase Ojas) strengthens the Asthi dhatu (bone tissue), and beneficial for cardiovascular health.

They are perfect on a cold day.

Turn on the oven 🔥

Method
1. Heat the oven to 200C
2. Using a small, sharp knife, cut a cross into the skin of each nut. 🌰
Put the chestnut in a roasting tin and bake until the skins open and the insides are tender, about 30 minutes.
3. Enjoy 😊 , drizzle some ghee over them #delicious

What did you have for breakfast today? Have you tried steel cut oats.

Porridge is always a great breakfast especially during the autumn and winter season.
These oats are closest to their original grain form. They are made when the whole groat (whole unbroken grain) is cut into several pieces with a steel blade (it looks similar to rice that’s been cut into pieces).
