A Very Happy Pongal, everyone!

reStore invites you to take a minute to think of the chain of people and other animals and organisms that bring us our more than adequate 3 square meals a day.

Buying organic is surely a big step and we sincerely appreciate it. As you all know there is more to be done, not just at reStore, but even more in the world at large.  One of the easiest things that anyone can do, is to speak up. Let your voice be heard for organic and more sustainable agriculture. Keep abreast of what is happening in the world of agriculture. Subscribe to forums and participate in signature campaigns. Involve your friends and family members.

If you would like to do more, get in touch with us.  There is tons to do.. ! Working together could be the biggest legacy that we leave for the coming generations.

We thank you for your support and look forward to more involvement from all of you.

Today’s recipe:  Yes, it is vegan!


This is a drink served as a post feast digestive and is most often served on Ram Navami day in temples, which occurs in the second week of April. It is refreshing, sweet and a good thirst quencher. It is good on any day with a heavy meal.

It is a free form recipe, using all natural ingredients and can be made to taste.

I litre of cool water

about 1/2 to 2/3 cup of powdered jaggery

a pinch of salt

Half a teaspoon of dried ginger powder, chukku.

2 or 3 whole cardamoms, crushed

Juice of a small lemon or lime

Mix all of the above together, except the lime juice. Taste, add more water if too sweet. Add a bit more jaggery, if too spicy. The idea is to get a ‘wake up call’ from the spices and soothing tone from the jaggery.

Add half the the lime juice, taste.. Stop if tangy enough..add more if not. You could do this just before serving.

Filter if you see a lot of fibre.. and you know that it would bother you.. else go all natural.. fibre and all!

Have a great week!
