Winter season has started....In India, in winters many leafy vegetables such as mustard, spinach, fenugreek, dill, bathua (a local north Indian veggie) etc. are available in abundance along with a variety of beans, peas, cauliflower, cabbage, colocasia, and also some other tubers. In fruits, grapefruit, oranges (or clementine), nectarine, apples, pomegranates, guava are also available in the markets. Delicious grain flours such as makka (corn) ,bajra (pearl millet), jowar are available. Also fresh peanuts in pods, white and black sesame seeds, and jaggery are special delights of winters. Many of these foodgrains have a tendency to provide warmth to the body.
It is important to take special care of your health in winters. We should drink lots of water and fluids, and keep an eye on sugar and salt intakes. We should also work out regularly. Balanced diet should be an important part of our life.
With best wishes,
stay tuned for new recipe Lakhnawi Gobhi (a cauliflower dish)!!!
