Exclusive Recipe

Moli Ka Paratha

- 2 cups flour, white or whole wheat  
-1 tsp. salt
- Water for mixing
For filling:
- 3 bunches white radish (mooli)
- 3 green chilies, chopped

- 1\2 cup coriander leaves, chopped
1 tsp. salt
-1 tsp. chili powder
- 2 tbsp. ghee
- Ghee or butter for shallow frying

Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Gradually add water to bind the mixture together. Knead well for a few minutes until dough leaves the sides of the bowl clean. Cover with a damp cloth and keep aside for 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile prepare the stuffing. Wash the radish and grate them, using a vegetable grater. Place the grated radish in a colander, add 1 teaspoon salt and mix well. Keep aside for 15 minutes.
3. Place a small amount of radish between the palm of your hands and press to squeeze out water. Put radish in a bowl, add green chilies, coriander leaves, salt, chili powder and 3 tablespoons ghee and mix well. Divide filling into 6 equal parts.
 Divide dough into 12 round balls. Flatten each ball slightly. Put one portion of filling in centre. Place the other round over to cover the filling and press the edges together to seal.
5. Dip the stuffed round into some dry flour to prevent it from sticking to the surface and rolling pin.
Roll out each round on a lightly floured surface into a round 6 inches (15 cm) in diameter.
7. Cook one at a time on a hot griddle over medium heat. Put about 1 or 2 tbsp ghee around the edge. Turn gently. Cook until sides turn golden brown. Serve with yogurt and lemon or mixed pickle.

Dough sticking to the rolling pin?
To prevent fresh dough from sticking to the rolling pin, keep it in the freezer for a few minutes before using.

Vitamin D 'makes stronger babies'

Giving pregnant women vitamin D could mean their babies grow stronger bones in later life, a study suggests.
A study of 198 mothers indicated the children of those who lacked the vitamin, crucial for calcium absorption, had weaker bones at nine.
Those who took supplements or were exposed to more sunlight, which helps the body grow its own vitamin D, had children with greater bone densities.
The research from Southampton General Hospital is published in the Lancet.
Professor Cyrus Cooper, who led the team, said the findings provided evidence that maternal vitamin D status during pregnancy influenced the bone growth of offspring and their risk of osteoporosis in later life.
He told the BBC News it was the vitamin deficiency of the mother carrying the child, rather than the baby in early life, which affected the child's bone strength later. "This is completely new - no one has ever looked at the mother's vitamin D levels before."
Vitamin D is crucial for the absorption of calcium which is in itself key in the formation of healthy bones.
The team from the Medical Research Council's Epidemiological Resource Centre at Southampton General Hospital measured the levels of vitamin D in women's blood in late pregnancy as well as studying calcium levels in the babies' cord blood.
Supplement warning

This showed how vitamin D had helped calcium transfer across the placenta.
Nine years after the babies' delivery, the team traced 198 of the original 596 mothers who remained in the Southampton area and measured their children's bone mineral content and bone mineral density. Professor Cooper now wants to carry out a study to see whether supplementation of vitamin D deficient pregnant mothers could lead to stronger bones in their babies in later life.  Professor James Walker of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists said the study demonstrated the importance of having adequate levels of vitamin D in pregnancy, both for the mother and her baby.
But he said it demonstrated that women who had adequate vitamin D levels were fine, and it was "only when levels were deficient that there was a problem".
"More vitamin D is not necessarily good," he said. "Therefore, no woman should take extra vitamin D in pregnancy unless recommended by their doctor." Jackie Parrington, spokeswoman for the National Osteoporosis Society, said the research was important as it showed the need to look after one's bones started at an earlier age than had previously been thought.  "Maintaining bone health is important throughout life. Regular weight bearing exercise and a healthy balanced diet are all essential for keeping our skeletons strong as are stopping smoking and not drinking heavily," she said.
Osteoporosis, which costs the NHS £5 million a day, affects half of women and one in five men over 50 in the UK. It results in bones becoming so porous that they can break very easily.

 Am I Really Sorry ! 
"Sorry", a word we hear many a times each day. So much so that it seems to be losing its significance for which it was suppose to be meant for.
This five letter word automatically comes on our tongue when we commit a mistake. It is like we have been fed to say this whenever we err.  This word, "sorry" has a greater meaning and significance. It means that we are regretful of our mistake AND in future will try our level best not to repeat it.  But sadly, now a days the word sorry seems to have only apologetic notion attached to it, and the other, equally important part, has somewhere been lost on the way.
The word "sorry", can mend hearts when said with true feelings. Only then is "sorry" effective when the person who says sorry actually is determined to make sure that the mistake will not be repeated intentionally again.
This five letter word "sorry" is not something that can "undo" the harm caused. Sometimes we hurt others purposely and when found guilty get away be saying sorry. But the person who has suffered because of our deliberate hurtful action, his sufferings cannot be undone. When someone loses the notes and assignments borrowed from some friend just a week before the final exams, she will just get away by saying sorry but will that sorry make any amends for the lost notes' owner? Will it equal the hours of hard work that the poor soul had put in preparing them the whole year? What happens when just by being careless while playing indoor with the ball you break the most antique vase on the shelf that belonged to you great grandpa? Sometimes we hurt others by our remarks. But the words said out once are like arrows shot from arc that can never return.
In our modern world, everyone make mistakes and gets on without fixing the harm done by them. Committers of Robbery, theft, corruption, violation of rights and rules all go unchecked because they find reason to justify their acts. People have become so busy in their lives that they have hardly any time to realize and confess their mistakes.  First step towards correction is realization of mistake. Then only it can be amended.
Dear fellows, saying sorry canít mend things especially when despite saying sorry once again we repeat our mistakes. So watch out your behaviour. Never intentionally harm others.  If you do so, say sorry with the true feelings of remorse and firmness to never let the mistake be repeated. The New Year provides us with just the right opportunity to bring about all good changes in ourselves. May Allah be with you.
