Go Nuts with Cashew Nut Curry - Kaju Maluwa ! Sri Lanka's Culinary world...


Snowballs are thrown in the air

Piling up in enormous mounds

School is cancelled for the day

Children run outside to play



Snowballs are thrown in the air

No one has any care

About school-only fun

Because the day is a snowy one



Snowmen are stacked very high

Their top hats almost skim the sky

To make them round they must pat

Then finish off with mittens and hat



As the weather gets cold

The children are told

To come inside and eat

Hot chocolate with a couple treats



Once the kids are done

They put on their gear for some more fun

Some of them play around

While other kids just lay on the ground



Another kid makes snow angels

Until the dog named Bojangles

Ran through his masterpiece

But then the owner yelled cease



After Bojangles

Ruined all the snow angels

Kids slid down the hill

‘Til they were bitten by a chill



Almost over is the day

The children start to walk away

As snow falls, so does the sun

Time to go in, the day is done

By Sam D (12 yr old girl)

Here I am again with one of the most famous dish from Sri Lanka....served on a very special occasions like weddings , Parties and arms-giving ceremonies...! when I saw this recipe here ...I instantly had this sudden urge to make it straight away...because I love to use nuts wherever possible in my cooking...



WHY DO I LOVE TO USE NUTS:-

Nuts are one of the best plant sources of protein. They are rich in fiber, phytonutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium. Nuts are also high in plant sterols and fat - but mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (omega 3 - the good fats) which have all been shown to lower LDL cholesterol....

Researchers found that people who eat nuts regularly have lower risks of heart disease. In 1996, the Iowa Women's Healthy Study found that women who ate nuts >4 times a week were 40% less likely to die of heart disease. Two years later, another study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health found a similar result in another group of women subjects. Furthermore, potential heart health benefits of nuts were also found among men. In 2002, the Physician's Health Study found that men who consumed nuts 2 or more times per week had reduced risks of sudden cardiac death.
