Anyway, adding a healthy punch to your meals does no harm. If you’re a cook, this blog is surely gonna teach you some bits about healthy cooking. So, let me present golden rules for healthy, no-no healthiest cooking!
Choose the right cooking oil
As we all know, cooking oil is the show-stopper of every Indian rasoighar. There’s not a single family in India where cooking oils are not used. There is a special cooking oil for every state in India. For instance, South Indians use coconut oil which adds a special nutty flavour to their meals. Your cooking oil says a lot about your health. To practice healthier cooking, you’ve got to use the right cooking oil. Instead of using refined oils, use organic mustard oil (kachchi ghani), sesame oil, groundnut oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil and even ghee. Ensure to switch cooking oils every month!
Opt for healthy cooking methods
Choose healthier cooking options so that you never have to see the face of a hospital due to cardiovascular conditions! Some healthy cooking methods are roasting, steaming, boiling, baking, and stir-frying. If you’re making pakodas or samosas occasionally, then put them first on a tissue paper to remove the excess oil from them.
Do not overdose on spices and condiments
Our country has a cornucopia of spices! Indian cooking is unimaginable without the use of masala! It’s time to use your masaldani judiciously! Don’t expect your food to be healthy if it’s saturated with spices and condiments. Use salt as required and add fewer spices to retain the healthy status of your meals.
Flavour your food with fresh spices and herbs
Nothing adds more flavour to your food than natural herbs and homemade spices. Use coriander leaves, curry leaves, lemon, and homemade masala pastes to add a dash of unique flavour to your food.
