Did you know that King Solomon had peacocks brought to him from as far away as India?

Fried Green Bananas

Some people call these bananas, others call them plantains. 
At home, we like to call them green bananas!
Buy really green ones, not the ripe ones.

Cut the tips off

Lightly peel the skin (which means part of the skin is still left on. This is high fibre!)

Cut in the shape of French fries

Should look like this 

Heat a large cast iron skillet, add a little oil (two or three tablespoonfuls) and heat well 
(this is to prevent sticking)
In the meantime crush two dried chillies onto the plantain
(and don't put your fingers anywhere ... till you wash your hands very well )

Add the plantain into the oil

Add turmeric, salt, ground black pepper, Kashmiri chilli powder and a little cumin powder
And keep stirring to ensure nothing sticks to the pan

Shut for a few seconds, open and stir, shut again 
(this is to bring out the moisture from the plantain to cook it)

Now continue stir frying uncovered on relatively high heat till the plantain is crisp on the outside

This is one way of cooking some really tasty fibre!

Air Canada Airbus A320

From this picture can you tell if the plane is landing or taking off?

Air Canada 
Airbus A320 -200 (320)


Whenever I listen to this song, 
I think of buying a Jeep!

"Go forth and have no fear,
Come close and lend an ear" 

Once upon a time, there lived a little boy called Caleb ...

He only lived for a few hours, and all that he ever experienced was love.
Caleb Counts Too, is a 26 page book written by Brian Evans, with illustrations by Joanna Koshy,

Lemongrass Tea

Pretty straightforward way to make lemongrass tea
(Just don't boil the lemongrass, as it will destroy all the goodness) 

Here's how to make cardamom tea or wanna try out some Iranian Saffron tea instead? 

Remember, always drink tea from a teacup
