Making it Healthier

I have attempted to make the dishes healthier by adding some ingreadients, or replacing some ingredients with healthier versions.

For the Brinji Rice, I decided to use Olive Oil instead of Sesame Oil, as Olive Oil is healthier than Sesame Oil. Olive Oil contains more iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin K and monounsaturated fat, which reduces your LDL, or dangerous, cholesterol level and regulates insulin and blood sugar levels. I also decided to add green peas in the rice, as peas contain many vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin K, manganese, Vitamin B1, fiber, copper, Vitamin C, phosphorus, folate, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B2, protein, zinc, molybdenum, magnesium, iron, potassium and choline.  A study has also shown that daily consumption of green peas along with other legumes lowers risk of stomach cancer. Green peas do indeeed have many benefits. I also used Basmati Rice instead of White Rice, as Basmati Rice as a lower glycemic load than White Rice. It is also gluten-free and low in fat, containing all eight essential amino acids, folic acid, and is very low in sodium and has no cholesterol.
