Fenugreek leaves: Methi bhaaji, methi paratha, methi pakoda – there are manyh ways you can include this rich green vegetable in your diet. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and phytonutrients.
Spinach: Our Indian mothers have several ways of luring us to eat this not-so-tasty vegetable. There is spinach soup, spinach pakoda, palak paneer, and so on. But don’t ignore it since it provides vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and a host of flavonoids that offer antioxidant protection.
