1. Plant Protein:

Lentils and other legumes (such as beans, peas, nuts, and seeds) offer a protein package. They’re rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals, nutrients and can provide plenty of protein per serving, which is half a cup cooked legumes.

3. Traditional Indian foods:

We have all merely heard tales from our parents and grandparents about how they used to eat healthier. Foods and eating habits from the past were much healthy, during our parents’ times. Traditional grains like bajra and barley are re-emerging. Also, the eating habits like fasting are known to be healthy.

The lip-smacking taste of Bajra Khichdi is served with spicy garlic chutney. Bajra Roti served with dal or a pickle can make you ditch even the best of exotic delicacies. Interestingly, we try every possible thing to stay in shape.

Bajra is also known as Pearl Millet. It is an integral and quintessence of Indian cuisine when it comes to Rajasthani cuisine in India. Imagining a hearty meal without Bajra delicacies is next to impossible in Rajasthan. Of late, this traditional superfood has turned out to be a fad among health enthusiasts for its enticing taste, texture and umpteen health benefits.
