Burfi Badam Pista (Milk Almond & Pistachio N Recipe
9 oz khoa, (see directions)
3 oz castor sugar
1 oz almonds
2 drop kewra essence or 1 drop itar kewra
1/2 oz pistachio nuts
4 medium silver leaves (optional)
Prepare khoa (dried fresh whole milk) by boiling 2 pints Jersey milk
or 960 mls buffalo milk briskly in a heavy pan (karahi). Stir all the
time until it dries up (takes about half an hour) and see that the
fire burns well, as slow heating turns the khoa creamy in colour. The
finished product should be white if properly prepared. Keep aside and
allow it to cool.
Add castor sugar (or substitute powdered sugar) to khoa and mix
thoroughly. Then cook for 10 minutes, taking care not to let the
mixture stick to the bottom. Mix minced almonds and pistachios; stir
for 2 to 3 seconds, remove from the heat and allow it to cool; add
kewra essence or the itar.
Invert a thali or a tray and grease its back; put the mixture over it
and roll out as neat and aas straight as possible. Decorate with
silver leaves. When it cools down and becomes firm, cut into diamond
pieces. Keep in an air-tight tin.

Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
The case against low carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe for you?
Many scientific studies recently have proved that eating excess animal fats can result in increased probability of cancer, heart conditions and other serious illnesses.
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity levels can lead to bone loss, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have found no evidence of kidney damage or loss of bone.
