Baba Ganoush

Baba ganoush is an Arabic dish made from aubergine, blended with vegetables. It is basically a starter or can also be called as an appetizer. The aubergine, tahini and lemon juice make baba ganoush rich in protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. It is more delicious when served with pita or vegetables, alongside hummus or by itself.

Mixed Dal Dhokla

Mixed dal dhokla is an amazing dish packed with a great balance of proteins and carbohydrates. Dhoklas are fermented which also increases the bio-availability of minerals present in food, helping the body assimilate more nutrition. The micro-organisms in the dhokla break down complex protein, carbohydrates, and fats into more easily assimilated molecules. Therefore, since healthy gut flora plays a key role in absorption, our body is able to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients, preventing nutrient deficiencies that are so common today.
