A Touch of Magic: All in one Gravy

Imagine being able to make a recipe without compromising on taste buds and save a lot of extra calories. If you want to lose weight or having cardiac problems such small steps can help in a big way.

While fat is an important Macro Nutrient there are many food items from which we easily get the minimum required fat which is needed in our daily diet. So the extra fat used in cooking in form of oils can be avoided completely. An average Indian household uses approx. 20-30 tsp oil per day considering major meals like breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 1 g of fat is 9 calories so just by saving say e.g.  8 tsp of oil consumption per day we can save upto 10000 calories per month of unnecessary intake. So what’s magical? How about making an Indian curry that allows you to make tasty Vegetable Curry recipes, Aloo Masala and what not with great taste & aroma easily? Let’s start.
