Winter Foods To Keep You Warm

With the winter season going on, the temperature is dipping to new lows. Even places like Mumbai are turning cold as never before. Let’s take a look at some foods that will help you survive winters like a pro.

Dry Fruits

Dry Fruits are those royal food which is accessible to most of us in all parts of the world today. They are nutritious and also prove to be an important source of heat in these days. What’s more exciting is that there is one for each one of us. Be it pistachio, cashews, almonds, apricots, raisins and much more. You can have them just as they are or have them with your milk or cereals. Dry fruits are one of the most versatile winter foods.

Fenugreek, Pepper and Asafoetida

Fenugreek (Methi), Pepper (kaali mirch) and Asafoetida (Hing) are found in many of the Indian dishes. These spices not just add up to the taste, but also help to keep you in shape.

Spices are full of flavor, aroma, and health benefits but how you store and care for them matters! Spices which are ground begin to lose their potency within 6 months & start to have less magic than when they are freshly ground because a lot of their beneficial, aromatic compounds are volatile. Try to buy whole spices and grind them in small batches (exceptions would be cayenne, paprika, turmeric which are harder to grind oneself). — Ideally, store spices in air-tight containers away from heat and light (not next to that oven or stove). Use ground spices within 6ish months. Whole spices last for a couple of years. — Toasting spices activates their beneficial compounds so try to give them some heat before grinding them up and / or using them in a dish. Turmeric for example does best when heated in a fat source and paired with black pepper. Finally, freshly ground cinnamon is BEST — #komalexoticspices #bombaymasalacompany #spiceology #indianspices #indiancooking #turmeric #cinnamon #blackpepper #cloves #staranise #cookingwithspices #kahujagroup #worldofspices #worldclovecouncil
