25g poppy seeds (Khushkhus)
50 g blanched almonds, finely chopped
25 g green raisins
150 ml natural yogurt

Prepare the marinade for the chicken. In a blender or food
processor blend thechopped onion,
garlic and green chilli to a paste. Mix with 60ml yogurt and
salt in a bowl. Add the chicken, spoon the mixture over it
and leave to marinate atroom
temperature for 4 -5 hours.
2. Meanwhile, prepare the stuffing. Put the rice in a
sieve and wash under a running cold tap until the water runs
clear. Drain and put in a heavy sauce pan. Level the rice
with a spatula and add just enough water to cover the riceby about 2.5cm. Cover with a tight fitting lid,
reduce the heat and cook for about 15-20 minutes
until the rice is tender and all the moisture has completelyevaporated. 3. Mix the cooked rice, eggs peas,
onion, ginger, almonds and coriander leaves together. Remove
the chicken from the marinade. Reserve the marinade for
lateruse. Stuff the chicken with
the rice mixture. Truss the chicken and keep aside. 4. Now prepare the sauce or masala.
In a blender or food processor blend thechopped onion, ginger and garlic to a paste. 5. Heat the ghee, add the ground
onion mixture, and stirring frequently, fry for 5 -10
minutes to a rich golden color.
Add the next 5 ingredients and stirring frequently to
prevent the mixture form sticking to the bottom, fry to a
rich golden color. At this stage ghee should start to
separate from the mixture. 6.Add the salt, ground coriander,
chilli powder, turmeric and the poppy seeds.Stirring continuously, fry until the ghee separates
again. Add the blanched almonds and green raisins. 7. Combine the plain yogurt with
the reserved yogurt marinade and stirring continuously, adda little at a time to onion and spice mixture (Slow
addition will prevent the yogurt from curdling). Once all
the yogurt has been added, keep on stirring for another few
minutes until the ghee separates once again. Remove from
the heat and keep aside. 8. Put the stuffed chicken in a
deep ovenproof dish.
Cover chicken with the prepared masala and see that it is
completely coated. 9. Cover the dish and place in the
oven at 180c mark 4. Basting frequently, cook until tender,
about 1 hour.
10. Remove the string and transfer the chicken to a
heated serving dish, pour the sauce over it and serve at
once. Sprinkle with coriander.
Pour lemon juice with sugar and a little salt into ice
trays, to make cubes which can be used for instant lemonade.
Cut down on meat to lose weight
Eating less meat may be the key to keeping a healthy weight,
A European study of almost 400,000 adults found that
eating meat was linked with weight gain, even in people
taking in the same number of calories.
The strongest association was found with processed meat,
such as sausages and ham, the Imperial College London team
It suggests that high-protein diets may not help slimmers in
the long run.
The findings, published in the American Journal of Clinical
Nutrition, also support public health messages advocating
cutting down on the amount of meat we eat, the researchers
The study looked at data from adults taking part in a large
project looking at the link between diet and cancer.
Participants from 10 European countries, including the UK,
were weighed and measured at the start and then asked to
report their weight five years later.
They also filled in a detailed food questionnaire.
Overall, the researchers found that meat consumption was
associated with weight gain in both men and women.
More detailed analyses showed that the link was still
significant after taking into account overall calorie
intake, physical activity and other factors which may have
skewed the results.
The team calculated that in people who ate the same number
of calories, an extra 250g of meat a day - equal to a small
steak - led to an additional weight gain of 2kg (5lbs) over

A portion of meat should be about the size of a deck of
It counters the theory that diets with high amounts of
protein and low amounts of carbohydrate promote weight loss.
Although it is not clear why meat would lead to weight gain
in people eating the same number of calories, one theory is
that energy-dense foods like meat alter how the body
regulates appetite control.
But there could also be another lifestyle or dietary
explanation for the link that was not accounted for by the
Study leader Dr Anne-Claire Vergnaud said: "I would
recommend to people to control their consumption of meat to
maintain a healthy weight and good health in general during
But she added: "Decreasing the amount of meat alone would
not be an adequate weight loss strategy."
Sian Porter, a dietician and spokeswoman for the British
Dietetic Association, said there were caveats in the study,
including the fact that at the end-weight was self-reported.
But she said it was an interesting finding.
"We eat more meat than we need.
"What I say to my patients is to think about variety - so
have an egg for breakfast instead of bacon, cheese for lunch
instead of ham and fish for the evening meal.
She advised people to eat lots of lentils and pulse,
wholegrains, fruit and veg and oily fish as well as meat.
"Portion size is the other thing - a portion of meat should
be about the size of a deck of cards."

When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run
while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the
other with rinse water.
Some refrigerators, air conditioners and ice-makers are
cooled with wasted flows of water. Consider upgrading
with air-cooled appliances for significant water
Adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not
the house, sidewalk, or street.
Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they
are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
Choose shrubs and groundcovers instead of turf for
hard-to-water areas such as steep slopes and isolated

Every day I bring to life
Written by: Aymen Zaheer
Information Technology & Computing Student
Every day I bring to life and think;
O’ Soul set foot in, why you are astonishing
God added further fresh day,
Of strive for my own entity.
Suddenly, silence surrounds all around;
Wind whispers in my ear,
Asking to ride on,
Over land and touch the sky.
I felt in,
The beauty of the existing world,
Smiling and singing a rhythm of happiness.
One more sea breath blows by way of my feet;
Sunrise spread on the skyline,
Touches my curly hair as I Stand,
To catch colors in my hand together.
Birds flying and nosing all over,
In searching of food and feeding their child’s;
Is it wondering to see the artistry shade on the universe?
I am ready to undertake,
All in all, it calms my body and soul,
Conceding me take pleasure in this entire day.
I admire that,
Life is not what we enrolled,
It has completely changed on next daylight;
Even so, we have plenty of things,
To grasp from each day,
Be blessed, blissful and joyous moment of life.

Looking at the topic, you might have thought it is going to
be on the British philosophy that they used to rule Indo-Pak
subcontinent. But no friends, this is not about it. This
issue, is going to be interestingly technical. Oh don’t
worry. Not the boring technical details but we will see how
interestingly these techniques are applicable in our lives
too. During our training for software development, we were
taught the breakdown approach in which we learnt how to
break the bigger problem into smaller parts. Then resolve
each to eventually reach to a solution for the bigger issue.
Same stands true for the matters in life. On a glance, the
issues that arise in life appear monstrously huge and
frightening, as if no solution exist. But when analyzed with
a cool mind, they often can be broken down to solvable
One of the types of algorithm is known as divide and conquer
algorithm. It repeatedly reduces an instance of a problem to
smaller instances of the same problem until the cases are
small enough to solve easily. Same ways, when confronted
with an issue, break it into sub-problems. Concentrate on
one at a time and eventually by solving each you will have
the bigger issue resolved.
Generally thought, problems are considered as obstacles to a
goal. However, there can be another approach to it. Think
differently and consider problem as a challenge. And turn
this challenge into an opportunity. If you pick up few of
the successful people around you, you will realize how many
problems they had to face. But each problem helped them
evolve into a more capable person.
Remember only those bunch of people do not have problems who
are resting in peace at graveyards!
Think… ‘Divide and conquer’ your problems.
Till next time,
