Trying this tonight with masala dosa!
This curry follows the basic principles of making Kerala style mezhukkupuratti. The addition of garlic is not common, but we do add it while making plantain mezhukkupuratti.
A bunch of red radish – contains 6 to 8 radishes.
Onion- one small, sliced.
Garlic- 2 or 3 small cloves crushed
Green chilis – 8 small, crushed
Turmeric powder- a pinch.
Oil for saute
Mustard seeds – a pinch
Curry leaves- a sprig
Salt to taste
The leaves: Roll all the leaves together and slice into long shreds.
Clean the radishes and cut them as you would slice an apple. Clean the leaves, if you want to use them in the dish.
In a pan, add some oil. When it is hot, add the mustard seeds.
When the mustard seeds splutter, add curry leaves and onions. Saute for 3-5 mins till edges of the onions turn slightly brown.

The use of a blender, or Ninja is a great alternative to an expensive juicer. Here is how I do it:
1. put 1 cup of distilled, room temp water into Ninja
2. cut up your pink lady apple, 2 stalks of celery (use all of the celery-even the yellowish, leaves), ~1 tablespoon fresh ginger, a small bunch of parsley (you don’t have to cut the parsley)
3. add all ingredients to Ninja, and add a dash of cayenne pepper (fire element)
4. blend on setting 1, then 2. blend until you see the pulp that is being flicked onto the sides of the Ninja fall down to be blended again (see video)
5.have a glass ready with a piece of cheesecloth covering the opening
6. pour the juice and pulp onto the cheesecloth and press the juice through using a rubber spatula
7. put remaining pulp into a plastic container to freeze for compost (or whatever you want to use it for)
8. clean up (I like the Ninja because it is easier to clean than a juicer, and all its parts)
9. enjoy your juice in the morning sun
10. recite your morning mantra:
a shining being

After the vacation, I was feeling sluggish and off balance. I needed a boost. So I decided to go grocery shopping, and I got my usual fruits and veggies. Food City also had large bags of zucchini, peppers and bananas on clearance. I got a bag or two, of course. I made vegan banana and zucchini bread muffins and this for my morning breakfast:
Tasty Carrot Juice my way:
1 large cucumber
2tbs raw ginger
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup water
My skin was a little dry on the return; probably do to stress, lack of sleep, and exposure to lots of car, truck, bus, and boat exhaust. LOL! Bentonite clay came to the rescue! After applying the clay and taking a warm shower with it on, my skin felt so soft all day long. I didn’t use any soaps to cleanse or lotions for moisture; the clay removed all impurities and left my face moisturized:)
I really appreciate all the new subscribers!
