hi....actually its best to consume 1 glass of butermilk before & after having your food as it contains only 19cal and having it 2 times with food helps you feel full..hence you will eat less & graduall loose weight. even im on a diet & im doing the same i have 4 glasses of buttermilk a day..it works try it..!!

No,not really other than the obvious. Salads and vegetables done the Western way without Indian type flavours. This is why I started the topic. I see so many thin ladies from India (well, there are SOME men too lol) and I wonder what they are doing. Especially given the fact that they don't eat meat. When I want to lose weight, I have more protein , less carbohydrates etc.

I was just curious if brown rice is supposed to aid weight loss?? But you are saying it is basically for health?? I think many people will agree there.I do know that brown rice and white rice are basically the same glycaemic index.

And I know salt helps retain fluid so if you don't have so much, you won't carry so much fluid but I don't think it changes fat stores on the body...that is why I asked.
So how do so many women stay thin? Is it the Indian metabolism?? Still wondering.

i think apart from the recipes, we should not consume salt after 7 30 in the evening. i take my dinner at 7 30 in evening and then at 10 have fruits and feel very light. also, switch to brown rice instead of eating white rice.

heres a recipe with an amazing potential for experimentation ...i love playing around this theme with sauces / herbs / other veggies / mixtures of veggies for color, crunchiness...

note on serving size :

the serving size is inversely proportional to the amount of green chillies added. no green chillies need be added when paired with continental dishes.

typically - with rice or rotis ...and max chillies; a few tablespoonsful or a cupped handful. with bread or pasta ...and no chillies; an open handful or even an open handful post a wide-eyed mouthful !

assorted veggie 'torans' - cabbage / carrot / beans...

to serve 6 you will need :

cabbage - fine shreds / carrots - grated / beans - finely sliced. the quantity of veggies depends on the type of meal (see above). note: other than coconut the quantity of other condiments do not vary with amount of veggies.
freshly grated coconut - 1/6th to 1/4th the amount of veggies.
groundnut oil - 2 teaspoonsful (just sufficient to make the mustard seeds splutter)
dry red chillies - 2 whole.
mustard seeds - 1 level teaspoonful.
uncooked rice - 1 level teaspoonful.
curry leaves - 12 or more.
salt to taste. can substitute lime juice instead. or can add both (best).
green chillies, deseeded and julienned - as required, if at all.

torans ...contd.

heat the red chillies and cooking oil in a wok or kadhai. when the chillies start to burn, remove and discard. add the mustard seeds to the flavoured oil and as they begin to splutter add the rice and curry leaves. stir. when the rice puffs up and turns white add the green chillies and the veggies. high flame; add salt, stir.
for carrots / cabbage : add the grated coconut and stir for 2-3 mins on a high flame. add lime juice. serve.
for beans : reduce flame to low-medium. cover and cook for a few minutes until semi-cooked. stir in the grated coconut, cover and cook on low flame until just done. serve.

torans ...contd.

stunning variations :

with beans : blend the coconut with a generous amount of garlic pods. add this mix at the half-cooked stage. all other steps as above.
with cabbage : start with 2 tablespoonsful of oil. proceed as above until rice puffs up. now add two tablespoonsful of thick yogurt. as the yogurt sinks into the oil and splutters, take off flame. add this mixture to the finely sliced cabbage and grated coconut. toss and stir in more yogurt if needed to ensure the cabbage has a fine coating. chill in fridge. add salt and generous amount of lime juice. toss and serve! ...yummy flavourful salad!!!

all of these are excellent accompaniments with any type of meal - roti or plain boil rice based (with multiple dishes / curries), or even with bread or pasta based meals.

there is a variety of steamed dishes from every corner of india that may be suitable.

idlies, puttu, steamed appams from the south. also vegetable-upma with minimal oil.
dokhla, khandvi from the west.
momos / dumplings / dimsums from tibet and the north-east.

just substituting normal breakfast / snack items with these would make a huge difference...
