Can Fried Food be Your Friend?
- 7 Months ago
The monsoon is here and don't we all fantasize about having hot pakodas with a cup of piping hot ginger tea on a lazy weekend evening? But is your calorie conscious mind contradicting your taste bud craving for hot deep fried foods? With fever, cold and other illnesses at its peak during monsoon, we avoid pakodas from outside. But did you know that home-made pakodas can be your friend? Mouth watering? Read below...
People with low immunity fall sick during the monsoon. Also, your immune system can crash if your calorie intake is insufficient. Your taste buds try to boost your immunity by making you crave for fried foods. Remember, your body with this inherent intelligence rejects the same fried foods during summer?
Certain oils used for deep frying can provide you with certain health benefits. If you are using groundnut oil, essential fats and antioxidants present in the oil used for deep frying will not just help you fight diseases during winter, but also keeps your skin and scalp supple which is otherwise dry and flaky. Ginger tea along with hot pakodas also can take care of your overindulgence. Ginger aids in fat breaking and also fights gas in your stomach.
Enjoy home-made pakodas (without reusing the oil) this monsoon...
