Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

The low-calorie content of Okra and its high fiber content makes it a suitable food for weight loss. It provides minimum calories and the fiber helps in keeping you full for longer. Okra contains soluble fiber pectin. Pectin helps in lowering the bad cholesterol. Consuming curd or yogurt increases the capacity to absorb the nutrients and minerals from other foodstuffs. The calcium present in it prevents your body from pumping more cortisol which helps to reduce cholesterol and aids in weight loss.

  • Ginger [diced] - ¼ tsp
  • Pepper corns - ¼ tsp
  • Oil - ½ tsp

DIRECTIONS:

Heat oil in a cooking vessel and add the dry red chili and cumin seeds and stir fry till the aromas come out.  Step 3 Add the chills, coriander powder, turmeric powder, besan and stir well for a few seconds.

Tabbouleh is a salad like no other, made with fresh vegetables, spices and the "it" grain, Bulgar. Adding a generous amount of parsley and cucumber leaves you refreshing, especially during summer to beat the heat. The use of Bulgar provides an extra punch of proteins and fibre. A drizzle of garlic-flavoured olive gives a special kind of flavour, which leaves a tingling taste on your taste buds. The salad is seasoned with the right amount of spice and herbs hence making the salad overall nutritious.
