    It is available as pieces of wood as well as powder. Add a piece of half a teaspoonful of the powder to water along with turmeric, kalkand and boil until the water reaches 50% volume. Then mix with warm milk and drink it.

    You spent a week in my sasural Satchi! : ) Made plans to visit this year but had to shelve them due to some tricky scheduling issues. Sigh.

    Wish you a very happy birthday and a very very special teacher's day!! Your birthday dinner looks scrumptious!

    Thanks a lot Gauri. :) Pune is my 'maaher' only 'maa' not being there anymore. Had to start the process of emptying mom's home. Painful, but then that's life.

    Do hope we are in Pune at the same time someday. Would love to meet you.

    @Shanvy - Any Navarathri fast meal plates? I need to start my fast in a day and I have no ideas on balanced fast meals. I need my energy and can't stop the momentum now :)
