Asha has sent in her recipe for losing weight..she says

Dry roast 1 portion of Horse gram and 1 portion of Barley (1:1) and ground coarse in a mixie.  Cook in the cooker for 8 whistles as barley takes time to be cooked.  This is to be had early n the morning as a soup before breakfast. If needed one can add jeera and pepper powder for taste. It is very helpful to lose inches.  However this cannot be a substitute for walks or exercises.  I have been doing this for the last one month. It does help a lot. I hope this helps some of them who wish to lose some inches.

* Pls note that Asha is not a registered medicial practitioner and this is a friendly advise as mentioned in a book. Like she says this is not a substitute for exercises to lose weight.

The reply to the query would be.

Add 3 glasses of water to 1 tablespoon of the mixture.(if you can consume 3 glasses of soup) If you are hypertensive do not add salt. It can be taken like a soup just before breakfast. Try and drink it while it is hot. Really helps.
