Keto Low-Carb Pakodas

We have tied up with Mumbai based food blogger, Ms Mahua Kamat, and have also taken up the Keto-life! Following is an excerpt from her blog explaining the basic science behind this diet:
"Simply put The Ketogenic (or Keto) Diet is a super low carbohydrate high fat diet coupled with a moderate protein consumption. You’ll hear the term LCHF a lot. That’s where it comes from. Low Carb High Fat.
To follow this way of eating you need to reduce your carb intake quite radically and supplement it with increasing your fat intake. This drastic reduction in carbs gets your body to switch from using glucose for energy to using fats making your body go into a state of Ketosis.
To sum it up,
Low carb intake = Body in starvation mode (ketosis) = Body using fat for fuel (ketones) = Weight loss! Yay! (And an assortment of other health benefits)"

Look forward to starting this healthy journey with you all!

Gajar Ka Halwa ( in microwave)

A fast and instant method of making gajar ka halwa or carrot halwa. Gajar halwa is a very famous and favorite sweet dish especially in the north India. It is customarily made during winters as that's the season of nice juicy red carrots in India. This carrot halwa recipe takes very less time to prepare in the microwave. The cooking time in the microwave is roughly 10 to 11 minutes. While making the halwa in a microwave, please use a deep microwave safe Lumino Mixing Bowl “ LU09 or Orchard Garden Bowl “ BP35 Parabolic, so that the halwa mixture does not spill out and serve it in the Drona bowl set.

Grande trail mix!

Nuts are pint-sized nutritional power-house that is loaded with healthy unsaturated fats, protein, fiber, antioxidants, vitamin E, and other essential vitamins and minerals. Whether they're raw or roasted. Seeds provide many of the same nutritional benefits as nuts do. Hemp seeds, for example, are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, gamma linolenic acid, protein, zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and calcium. Dried fruits can be a great source of fiber, antioxidants, calcium, and vitamins A, C, and K. It's also pretty easy to make your own dried fruit at home in the oven.
