It is right to be concerned about shedding your pregnancy weight after delivery, but you surely do not have to worry about losing variety or flavour in the foods you have! Methiche Varan is a perfect example. An authentic Maharashtrian dal reverberating with all the flavours that the desi palate yearns for, this low-cal dish is loaded with methi leaves, rich in fibre, folic acid, vitamin A and iron. Replacing sugar with jaggery not only enhances the taste but also reinforces the iron content. This fibre-loaded dish will appease your craving and hunger, while also helping you regain your waist-line.
