Basmati rice, avocado and Sweet Corn in ghee for a summer dinner

Corn and summer are great companions. Corn is also friendly to pitta doshas. I like to use the juice of the fresh corn to curries, rice and soups.

In here however, I am using the  corn kernels to make a simple quick side summer dish. I like to add hing to avoid gas forming and to pacify the Vatta effect of corn. This dish goes well serve with fresh avocado, steam asparagus and basmati rice.

If you need to replace ghee, use coconut oil and add at the end 3 tsp of coconut cream to give a creamy consistency to the dish.

Urugula an coriander Pesto for pitta dosha

Summer months tent to aggravate pitta dosha. The garden has plenty of flowers and herbs to cool you down and to sustain the liver during summer.
This pesto can be use rice, salads, soups and pastas. Urugula and coriander are great companions. You can also add fresh nettles to give that extra strength and minerals.
