Tarla Dalal    Hi Sunny, we don''t comment on soya as there is conflicting information on its health properties. Also its not possible to give health info on other recipes as its a complex process. Method of cooking, ingredient ratios are important, oil used. Look at our other roti recipes online and most of them have detailed health information.
