June 2013 Indian eRecipes Newsletter

June 2013
Happy Father’s Day

Dear Madhu,

This summer, I’ve decided to take sometime to update my website and revisit this newsletter. I will resume monthly newsletters in the fall. In the meantime, please visit my facebook page,, and check out the summer culinary adventures.

I welcome your input; if you have any suggestions for the website or the newsletter format, please email me. Have a great summer and I look forward to communicating with you soon.

June is Men’s Health Month

Celebrate Father’s Day and take care of the men in your life by encouraging them to have a check up with their physician. Men sometimes take better care of their cars than their health. Encourage men to pay attention to warning signs such as changes in bowel or bladder habits, persistent backaches, recurrent chest pains, and extreme fatigue.

Men’s health issues significantly impact everyone around them. Women and men should educate themselves about potential male health problems. Check out for resources and health facts.
Here are some health checkup tips for men:

•    Eat less, move more
•    Eat your vegetables and fruits
•    Know your cholesterol levels
•    Check your blood pressure
•    Get screened for colorectal and prostate cancer

June Recipes:

I hope you are taking full advantage of the long summer days and spending as much time as you can outdoors, sitting on the patio, taking long walks in the park, and enjoying backyard barbecues. As often as possible buy fresh produce from your local Farmer’s Market. Buying local is good for you and good for the environment.

For your next barbecue, enjoy Spicy Grilled Salmon, fresh corn on the cob roasted directly on the fire, along with Grilled Vegetables.
Spicy Grilled Salmon
Grilled Corn (Bhutta)
Grilled Vegetables (Bhuni Subji)

Enjoy a Happy and Healthy Summer!
