Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

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.

Green peas are good sources of folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin K. Peas help lower cholesterol levels in the body. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin B6 and also a good source of magnesium. Mint leaves are a great appetizer or palate cleanser. Mint leaves stimulate the digestive enzymes that absorb nutrients from food and consume fat and turn it into usable energy.
