Beetroot Modak Recipe - Beetroot Sweet Kolukattai version With Jaggery without sugar

Beetroot Modak Recipe - Beetroot Sweet Kolukattai version With Jaggery without sugar:

All of us like to indulge in a sweet once in a while right? Then, what about kids? Won't they deserve to indulge in sweets as we did during our childhood? But what is stopping us? We think that sweets are not good for our kids. When we eat sweets, we never care about our health. But when we give sweets to kids, we always have at least a little bit guilty feeling. Jaggery comes to save us from this guilty feeling. But the point here is to pick a good quality jaggery. You might think why we have to be careful while buying a jaggery. I recently heard that Sulphur and other chemicals are added to jaggery.

Sweet Beetroot Kolukattai Recipe 

I am adding this to my series of Healthy snacks recipes for kids as it is a very good and healthy evening snacks items for kids. Don't hesitate to make this for breakfast or dinner too. Don't forget that it is a healthy festival recipe that you can make for Ganesh Chathurthi.

Beetrook Modak - Sweet Kolukattai Recipe

This is not a recipe to pick if you are making snacks in a hurry. It takes time as you have to grate beetroot and coconut. You also need to make jaggery syrup and blend everything. You need to mould the modak too. So, choose it only when you have a minimum of 45 minutes to spend for this sweet if you are making for family of 3-4. If you are going to make only 5-6, you need lesser time.

Mantra Gold Coatings Review

Mantra Gold Coatings Review:

Recently I got a chance to visit Mantra Gold Coatings, a store that aims to create spiritual bliss in every household. It is a home decor and cultural gifting shop. You can find elegant idols, lamps, beautiful name plates, handcrafted bronze Murals, wall arts, pooja mandapams, decoratives, pooja articles and much more.

Mantra Gold Coatings is a retail initiative to provide 24 Carat gold coating services and gold coated products, gifts, artefacts, and accessories.

You might wonder why there is an exclusive store related to spirituality.  Do we really need to give importance to spirituality in life? I found the below interesting points about Spirituality in a research article.

  • Some observational studies suggest that people who have regular spiritual practices tend to live longer.
  • Patients who are spiritual may utilize their beliefs in coping with illness, pain, and life stresses. 
  • Some studies indicate that those who are spiritual tend to have a more positive outlook and a better quality of life.
  • One study showed that spiritual well-being was related to the ability to enjoy life even in the midst of symptoms, including pain.
  • Spiritual commitment tends to enhance recovery from illness and surgery.


People who give importance to spirituality and love to indulge in spirituality at home must visit this store at least once in lifetime.

Here is what the owner has to share with us:

To be frank, I believe our Decor products, Idols and lamps talk to our guests in store. My team members are mere facilitators. It is when this communication happens, the  guest becomes very happy and he keeps coming to our store, just to enjoy the display. There have been doctors, who will come for a break at our store, in afternoons, evenings, stay for some time, smile and say I will come back. These are our happy moments, our moments of Peace.

Cucumber Tomato Sandwich Recipe - Fresh and Creamy Sandwich

Cucumber Tomato Sandwich Recipe - How to make Fresh and Creamy Sandwich Recipe:

When I went to a Bloggers meet, I tasted a sandwich with fresh cucumber and tomato slices along with mayonnaise. But I felt something was missing. Later I had a green sandwich in a restaurant. I realised that the sandwich served during the Bloggers meet would have tasted better if green chutney was added. I tried this sandwich the next day. But I was unable to post it immediately as I was busy with vacation. I have used sandwich bread this time. But I always use whole wheat bread mostly from which does not have preservatives.

Why fairness cream for women might not work for men's skin?

Men's skin is definitely different from women. Their skin is thicker than that of women. Men have larger pores with more oil glands. It leads to more oily skin and acne.
