This recipe is a very good weight reducer if taken regularly.

Barley - 1/2 cup
Horse gram - 1/2 cup
Dried ginger powder - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Butter milk - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Green chilly - 1
Lemon - 1/2

Clean barley and horsegram and grind it to a fine powder in flour mill (it is a bit hard to grind it in mixer at home). Take 3 tsp of the powder and fry it in a dry pan ensuring it didnot burn out. Add 1/4 cup of water and make it to a fine paste without forming any lumps. Mash any if formed and beat it thoroughly. Add remaining water and cook it. Keep stirring so that it does not burn and also not to form lumps.
