Green peas are one of the most nutritious vegetables, rich in phytonutrients, minerals, vitamins, and anti-oxidants. They are a rich source of Vit A, K and C. Udad dal is rich in protein and soluble fiber, making this dish an ideal Sabji / evening snack.

Chia Drink

Despite their small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients. They are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids which are heart-friendly fats, rich in antioxidants, calcium and iron and also provide fiber which aids in weight loss.
