My next ingredient in Healthy bites n Seedies are Sesame seeds(til).
These tiny seeds contains a substantial amount of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, manganese,
calcium n lignans.
The iron can help prevent iron deficiency tied to anemia and low energy.
Lignan which helps improve lipid profiles and can normalize cholesterol and blood pressure.❤
These tiny seeds are rich source of a compound called phytate that has strong anti-cancer properties
Calcium helps increase bone density and prevent osteoporosis especially in the hip and spine regions.
The rich copper content of sesame(til) seeds help in curing rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. Copper is known as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant mineral. It also helps in strengthening the joints, bones and blood vessels n metabolic health.🧘🏻♀🧘🏻♂
Winter afternoons and craving for desi food dragged us to this location along an extremely busy road @chitchaatpk .
But we were in for a major disappointment. As much as the food looked appetizing and full of flavours, it was quite the opposite. I say it with a heavy heart.
There was too much going on, excessive chaat masala, and the flavours were all over and not cohesive.
The papri chaat was okay. It wasn't bad, it was just okay. The potato layer kind of killed it for me.
I expected the Gol gappas to be sour, they weren't. It was another sad affair. The disappointment. I take my Gol Gappas seriously. Tamarind dip wasn't tamarindi enough.
The chicken masala noodles, had this after taste of cumin and coriander. There was no spice. Was bland, low on the salt.
The flying saucer sandwich I like the rendition of the name. It wasn't bad. I would recommend this. I liked the spice level and the texture. Also the bread was nice and crispy.
The beef noodles were good too. If you have to go and have something, I wouldn't strongly recommend this. But it could work. Loved the texture of the beef though.
The Paneer pizza , that was actually tasty. Flavours were on point. The crust was crispy and thin. Loved this for sure. Don't order anything else, just this and chaye maybe.
I love the ambience. The interior was so cosy. They could do away with the column though. Or just maybe paint it a neutral color. Just a thought.
The outdoor sitting is quite comfortable. There is this wheel under the table, it's a good way to pass time. You can keep spinning it with your foot. Lol.
It's a good place to hangout and have tea. I hope they work on their flavours a bit.
The staff was really efficient. Just the food was a disappointment.
