Kambu is one of the best great alternative for rice. I strongly suggest you to skip rice at least 2 - 3 times  a week. It is really a health alternative. On summer days first day you eat kambu rice and remaining you can make a balls and put in water, next morning you can mix th
at balls with buttermilk and make kambu koozh.  It cools your body naturally.

Just soak the rice for 10 mins, 4 minutes pressure cooker mode in the instant pot and wait 5 minutes for natural pressure release.  Its easy and actually works as pro on busy times.

Strawberry smoothie become my family all time favourite milkshake without milk 😜 specially for breakfast. Due to lock-down cooking frustration for mommies, this is best for you and your family to give healthy kick off the day. It is so frothy and so creamy with adding 2 tbsp of oats. Once you start drinking you would prefer this strawberry smoothie at least 2 - 3 times a week. 


If you want to change up the flavor you can replace the strawberries with blueberries, raspberries or mango. You could even do a mix of two. My son love it when I make smoothies. I’ll serve him for breakfast or brunch or  a refreshing treat on a warm summer day. You can’t go wrong with these yummy drinks.

The presence of vitamin-rich egg yolk and castor oil make this hair mask ideal for curbing hair loss, especially for dry and rough hair. Also it adds silky shine to your hair without using any hair product.
 
The best part is that eggs are inexpensive, easily available, and give you healthy hair when consumed as a part of your diet as well as when you use an egg pack for hair. Try this mask at least once in a week, you'll see amazing results immediate.
