Are you a lover of those 'makhan' and 'malai maarke' Punjabi dishes? Do you always feel like gorging on those 'cholle bhatoore' and 'aloo ke paranthe' with dollops of butter, without adding an inch to that appealing waist line?
Well, this article will help you make your dream come true! The fact that the delectable Punjabi dishes are high on calorie content is true. But, the fact that speaks that Punjabi food is fattening, is truly a MYTH.
Yes, you read it right. Rujuta Divekar, who is also renowned for being the personal nutritionist for Bollywood beauty Kareena Kapoor, recently commented, "Punjabi food is not fattening. So, tuck in."
A well approved diet by a nutritionist, comprises those stuffed paranthas and that rejuvenating tall glass of lassi. A stuffed parantha for lunch, along with a bowl full of curd comprises 150 calories, which is not really much for a tummy filling meal. The glass of lassi has 80 calories, which can definitely substitute those high in sugar content ice teas.
As long as the Punjabi diet is consumed in limits, and is followed with work out session - it can never cause any harm. So, feed your appetite with 'makki di roti te sarso da saag'. Khao piyo te maaro dakaar!
