Perfect Paneer Parantha – Finally Good Outcome from Panchakarma-Nov 20, 2012–11–28
I just ate the perfect paneer parantha. (You can see a perfect aloo parantha Here )
Would have been the perfect aloo parantha if that had been my choice today but I felt like paneer this time.
VERY thinly rolled, not doughy, not greasy, lots of turmeric and cilantro and the slightest hint of chilly powder. And lots of paneer. So different from what most places serve. Just as good as any I make myself at home.
Got up this morning-my last “real” day here before leaving tomorrow evening for the airport in Delhi.. Got dressed and decided to out for breakfast in Laxman Jhula. Below some of the sites I saw and pretty much the last photos of this short visit to Rishikesh
Stoppedby Dr. Arora to make final arrangements for dinner tonight at his house. Really excited. Manju is THE best cook I know personally in India!
And weighed myself. I could tell from my jeans this moring that the results of the final stage of panchakarma, rejuvenation, are finally clicking in. My body is finally beginning to get slowly back into balance.
Well, I got on the scale and to my great joy and surprise (as well as the doc’s-he gave me a huge grin and then hugged me), I gained 5 kg in the last 10 days or so. And it is the first time I’ve managed to put weifht back on since my digestive issues began more than a year ago! Went from 47 to 52 Kg!! My normal weight is around 56 kg so I am on my way.
Despite the setbacks during panchakarma this year, and it being soooo difficult, I see for sure tht slowly the full impact will be felt in the final results.
So I now sit at the Ganga View Restaurant, across Laxman Jhula to the left past the jeep stand.
This is a place I usually come to eat often, but will not have the time this year. They have the best iced coffee, toasted cheese (made with yak cheese), tofu and veggie dishes, and to my surprise, have now added bakery items to their menu. And of course a wonderful Ganga View to enjoy.
Today I found a lovely spot in the sun to enjoy.
Had the wonderful paneer parantha and masala chai, and for dessert had a delicious chocolate/banana muffin which was perfect!
Heading home to rest and finish packing and be ready to go to the Arora’s for dinner. Hope to write about it in one more post, as well as post several photo posts with shots that didn’t make it into any of the posts from this trip,
Namaste (but now in Israel 🙂 )
