Did you know that Chutneys transform the taste of what we eat?
In the western world, chutneys are somewhere in between pickles, a relish, a fruit jam or jelly. However, in India where chutneys originated, it is more than just a jam or jelly. Chutneys and dips are an integral part of Indian cuisine that is famous not only for its delicious taste but for its health benefits and nutrition as well.
Chutneys and dips bring a variety of benefits such as:
- soothing to the stomach
- improve digestion
- gentle detox.
They are made from traditional ingredients such as mint, coriander, curry leaf, coconut and more. Mint leaves help digestion, reducing inflammation and soothing the stomach. They can also enhance appetite and useful for nausea. Curry leaves are a rich source of iron and folic acid. Folic acid is mainly responsible for carrying and helping the body to absorb iron. It is a natural remedy for anemia.
Another chutney is made with tamarind and jaggery. The polyphenols in tamarind have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Jaggery is unrefined sugar. It is said to prevent constipation by aiding digestion. It has been used to activate the digestive enzymes in our body.
Coriander leaves are useful for digestion. They are rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin K. These nutrients are beneficial for people with diabetes. It can stimulate insulin secretion and lowers the blood sugar level. Coriander leaves are anti-inflammatory, and so is coconut.
