The concept of summer salads is catching up in India in the Metro cities!The reason being that people who have a sedentary life are having problems like Obesity,Diabetes and related complications.A proactive approach is needed to bring down this epidemic and ensure fitness levels among everyone.
People in India love Potatoes.Deep fried,spicy,subzis,fries,pakodas â€“ name it you have the versions.Then it comes written in large letters â€œPotatoes are laden with fatâ€!
When you boil it â€“ NO!
When you fry it â€“ YES!
So why is the hype about obesity and weight gain so much on the humble Potato when you can have it boiled and cut neatly into a delicious salad?Which is why I present a great tasting salad which has every possible thing you will enjoy â€“ Potatoes,hardboiled eggs,crispy,cool summer vegetables,a wonderful dressing,vinegar Onions and sprinkled with Parsley for a great refreshing taste in the mouth!This salad is apt for those summer days when you do not want to have your 3 (or 4) rotis,subzi and hurriedly cut vegetables you call a â€œsaladâ€.
This in the correct sense is a correct salad,a meal in itself and very tasty.This is a sincere request that if you have grown tired of having your routine lunch,change it for once!You will feel lighter,your tummy will feel fuller and you will be introduced to a healthier option!So scrap those rotis and rice for something different and try changing yourself for the better!Cheers!
I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.
Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.
Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
