Spicy Panner Sandwich

Standard

 

Sandwich are always hot with people who are short of time, so I prefer mainly these sandwich are breakfast for kids, since they rush up and have no time.  We can make our favourite sandwich by using the stuff we like. We can make good fusion sandwiches by combining different flavours. Keep this in mind here I combined panner with herbs for stuffing, which was healthier.

Muskmelon / Cantaloupe / Khirni pazham / Kharbhooja juice

Standard

 

Muskmelon contains lot of water and vital nutrients. Juicing the melons helps to cool the body during summers and also provides us with healthful benefits. Make sure to wash muskmelon skin before chopping them, since they are covered with edible wax to prevent moisture loss. Muskmelon juice should be consumed within 15-20 mins of extraction to prevent loss of nutrients. It is a valuable food medicine in the treatment of hyperacidity, gastric and ulcers.
