Herbal toothpaste for bad gums and yellow teeth

I believe our ancient tooth powder (the umikkari mix) was the best one in the world! umi(powdered paddy shell) is burnt to form "kari"(carbon) which is them mixed with pepper, salt and dried leaves of neem. The second toothpaste was mango leaves! Pick a ripe mango leaf bite it to form a paste and use it to brush. The stem of the leaf can be used asa tongue cleaner. My grandpa still uses the latter tooth paste. No wonder he can eat murukku even at the age of 85!

I did some research on the tooth paste, almost all the popular brands have one abrasive of the other(mainly bone powder) which destroys our enamel.. All the tooth whiteners have such abrasives that they remove one layer of the enamel revealing the bottom one which will be white... If somebody interested in a natural tooth powder you can try "dashana kaanthi" from "Kottakkal Arya vadiya sala" ... apply it on the teeth and gums and wait for a couple of minutes.. Then brush with a soft bristled toothbrush!! U (and your teeth) will thank me after 30-40 years!

How to make sexy hot n spicy samosas that are crispy and fresh?

How to make irresistible hot n spicy samosas that are fresh and crispy?

Hi friend,

Isn't it really cold here in Delhi? One of my friend put on a request in hubpages section today on how to make spicy hot samosas, so in order to answer that request, I have published an article today on the same. As you know, samosa in India is every vegetarian's and non-vegetarian's delight and mostly all the people use to buy them from outside and enjoy eating but why not make them at home. You know what is the type of raw material and oil people use in making things when you buy from outside. My friends and I do not believe in buying much food from outside, rather we like to make some things which are easy to make at home. So here is the link to this article which I have created on how to make samosas. If you like it or not, please give me feedback and leave some comment in the comment box.

One more thing to add, this recipe is for both oven-baked and deep fried samosas.

Your friend,

Rajinder Soni
