Apple Cinnamon Mint Infused Cooler Recipe | Refreshing Infused Water

Do you drink enough water everyday? Do you believe that a human body requires at least 8 glasses (that’s almost 2 litres) of water everyday? I have personally witnessed the benefits of drinking a lot of water (and also suffered drawbacks of not consuming enough). Sometimes, when I’m just too bored to drink water (but still thirsty), I like to go for a juice or a refreshing drink.

Here is a recipe to make one such refreshing drink infused with apples, cinnamon and mint! The combination of the three works really well in this infused water. You can choose to sweeten it if you want. And by adding a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar, you also make it into a health drink. ACV is known to be good for the liver.

The next time you feel bored to reach out for a glass of water, think of having this flavorful drink instead. Your body will thank you for it.   (more…)

How to cook Basmati Rice in a Pan Tutorial

Whether you’re making Pulao, Biryani, Fried Rice, Stuffed Peppers or Kheer, Basmati rice – with its wonderful aroma – is the most preferred choice. Indians use Basmati Rice extensively. Cooking rice in a pan is easy and requires all of 20 minutes. I prefer this method over the pressure cooker method for the Basmati rice because the rice comes out fluffy and separated here.

You can use the same concept to cook any kind of rice in a pan. The amount of water you will use will obviously differ – depending on what kind of rice you’re using.   (more…)
