A few more tips regarding a fengshui home.
  • See that the bedroom should not be quite opposite to the entrance of the main livingroom.
  • Do not place your office table and chair,opposite to the office door entrance.It should be a bit aside to the office door.If it is placed exactly in the opposite of the office door,you will not receive the cooperation of the staff members in the office.
  • Do  make your seat arrangement in the office,by  facing  the door in front  or side of you.Do not arrange the seating  arrangement by facing the office door in the back of you.And if it is inevitable place a mirror reflecting the entrance of the office door in front of your seat.
  • When you think that you are lagging behind in your career,then place a big photo frame of you with a cheerful laughing face,in your home,in the exactly centre of north wall of the living room.
  • Do not place tv,radio,alaram timepiece etc in your bedroom.
  • Atleast once in a 3 months clean the clutter in the house.
  • In the home garden,in the east portion grow a bamboo plant or tree.Or else stick a bamboo tree  wall poster to your wall in the east side.
  • See that the entrance of your home or office,is perfectly clean without any clutterlike tables stools,or shoes ,or stands  obstructing the good energy to enter .
  • Fengshui obstructs thorns or sharp edged plants in growing in home gardens.
Likewise there are some tips with which we can modify our homes with fengshui.

Here today i will cover the juice prepared by tomato, carrot,beetroot with sugarcandy,and lime.
Its been telecasted by Pandit  Yelchuri in the Ztelugu TV channel.
This juice purifies the blood,increases the blood count,and reduces the anaemia.
It also improves the texture of the skin, and prevents hair loss.
  • Tomatoes -100 gms
  • Carrots-100 gms
  • Beetroot-20 to 40 gms
  • Sugar candy-300 gms
  • Honey-100 gms
Wash the vegetables thoroughly,peel off the skin,then chop into small pieces.
Then blend the chopped pieces in a juicer ,adding water in small quantities,and blending well.
Then strain the juice and extract the pulp.
Again add 1/4 th cup of water into the pulp and grind well.Again strain the juice.
Like wise we can extract juice from the pulp by adding a little water 2 to 3 times.
Place the juice and powdered sugar candy on the stove on low flame.
Let it boil until the quantity of the juice reduces to 60% to 70% of the whole.
Then switch off the stove and let it cool.
If boiled in low flame it takes a long time ,say more than 1 hour.
Where as if kept in high flame,it has to be stirred quite often.
When cool,add honey in to it and store it in a dry glass bottle.
Always honey should be added only when the syrup is cool
Never mix  it  when hot.
If preserved in a fridge it remains fresh for a month.

When preparing juice ,add 2 tablespoons of juice with chilled water,and add juice of one lime,stir well.
Serve chill with a lemon rind.
Its a natural drink healthy and delicious.

The leftover pulp can be used as face pack by mixing milk cream,in to 2 spoons of pulp,  and applying to the face for 30 minutes.The left over balance of the pulp can be stored in a fridge for a week,and to apply daily as a face pack.

Fengshui is called as chinese vaasthu .These days most of us  are following fengshui tips.In my observation,though the vasthu is a little imperfect, and when it is impossible and very expensive to alter,then i choose fengshui as a remedy.It helps to some extent.Normally in the shops where the fengshui items are available,there are many varieties of fengshui objects and we can follow them.
  • According to fengshui,the  Southeast corner(agneyam mula  in telugu) in the house is considered as wealth and goodluck corner.Dont keep this corner dark without light.Atleast in the nights maintain a bulb in the south east corner. 
  • Keep 2 idols of roaring lions,in the two sides of main gate.Or atleast idols of cement can be carved on the gate.Last but not the least,paste 2 posters of roaring lions ,coz according to fengshui ,these roaring lions  protect the wealth ,and dont allow the evil forces to enter the house.
  • Place the picture of 9 running horses ,in the south block of the house,the fame and recognition part of the house.Surely your name and fame(keerthi prathishtalu) will be improved.
  • The career and oppurtunities causing part of your  house,in the North direction,place a small bowl with water.The other option is stick a poster of water ,running water or water fountain,without stones,in the north part.A good  change will be there in your career.
  • Dont keep or stick any posters relating to rivers,sea scapes,and water related pictures in the Bedroom.
  • Generally the place in the north will be more spacious and large when compared to the south in our indian vaasthu,the constructions are done according to this rule.So never use,the place in the north, as a dumpyard or storage of clutter ,or old articles.Keep it scruplously clean and vacant,coz that is the  career and oppurtunities part of the house.
  • Donot store sweeping brooms,etc clutter in the back of the doors.Coz according to fengshui the doors are to be opened fully without any obstructions.
  • Regularly do oiling to the screws and bolts of the doors and windows.There should not be any sounds while opening and closing of doors,coz the sounds obstruct the good luck .
  • No plants are to be placed in bed rooms.
  • Generally the slippers or slipper stands are kept in the  entrance of the door.This doesnot bring good luck according to chinese vaasthu.According to fengshui ,the CHI ,the good energy of luck ,will enter the house and travel inside from above the slippers and  shoes etc (if shoes are kept there)carrying the negative odour, which is not a good luck.Place the shoes and slippers away from the entrance of the house,and welcome the wealth and good luck in to your house.
  • The Tv s are not to be placed in the bedrooms,but it is not possible to each and every body.So after switching off the tv cover it with a thick plastic sheet and not with a cloth.
  • According to fengshui,the Good Luck CHI which enter your house,will retain in the water and remain there.So maintain scented flowers in flower vases, or  fish acquariums,or  water fountains, by which you change the water occasionally.
These are some of the tips to be performed according to fengshui  for a better and quality living.

Gummadikaya attu
Boodidha Gummadikaya or White pumpkin slits -4 cups
Pumpkin washed thoroughly and made in to thin and small slits of 1" size
Then apply salt,and place in a cloth napkin and squeeze well,or keep it under
a heavy weight box,on the kitchen platform,very near to wash basin .So that
the water which oozes from the pumpkin slits will go in to the wash basin directly,
thus not making the platform shabby

Urad daal -1 cup
Before making the attu,wet grind the urad dal,by adding less water in to a paste.
Wash & soak for 4 hrs
Greenchillies 6 nos
crushed into a paste.
Red chillie powder 1 tsp

the grinded urad dal mixture in to it.

So that every thing will be mixed well,and now the pumpkin mixture is ready.
Place a tawa on the stove ,add 1 tsp oil after heating,and place 1/2 cup of the pumpkin
mixture on the tawa and spread it a little,add 1 to 2 tsp oil and shallow fry.
Serve hot either with rice or tomato sauce.

Where as if this material is deep fried in oil it is called Gummadikaya Pachhi Vadiyam.
Place a kadai on the stove,add oil for deep fry,and after heating ,deep fry this batter in to medium sized vadiyams.It absorbs much oil so place on a tissue paper before serving.

and place the dough in the janthika maker and press in to hot oil.
Fry the 2 sides of the janthikalu till brown.
They will be crispy if they are fried till brown colour.
Iwont add neither butter nor oil,as it tastes like vamupusa.

A prasadam made with coarse rice,to Lord Vigneswara, especially on Vinayaka Chavithi,in the month of Bhadrapada masam.A unique festival which all children participate and celebrate with their parents.
The easiest prasadam to do.The measurements i give will be very lessmostly sufficient for a person,you can make double if u want to.
Rice Nuka(biyyam ravva) 1 cup
Channa daal(washed well and soaked before 3 hours)
Oil 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Jeera 1/4 tsp
Place a kadai on the stove  add 2 1/2 cups of water,and 2tsp of oil,salt and soaked channa daal and let it boil.After it boils,then reduce the stove flame to low and now slowly add the biyyam nuka slowly,stirring well.Add the total 1 cup of biyyam nuka,and place a lid and let it simmer,occasionally stirring.
After it gets cooked,switch off the stove let it remain aside and let it cool.
After it gets cool, now make balls,and place the undrallu in an idli stand,and cook just as you cook idli(cooking is done on water vapour).
Switch off the stove after 5 mins.
Serve with coconut chutney
Even though it can be eaten after the balls are made,no need of cooking like idli.Thats why 2 1/2 cups of water are added.But some people add only 2 cups of water instead of 2 1/2 cups,and after making balls they cook them as they cook for  idlis .Depends .
