Is Green Chutney healthy? 

Yes Green Chutney is healthy for most and needs a modification for others. Made from mint leaves, coriander, onions, lemon juice, sugar and green chillies.

Let's understand the Ingredients.

What's good.

Mint Leaves (Pudina) : Mint (pudina) being an anti-inflammatory reduces the inflammation in the stomach and shows a cleansing effect. Sipping on a healthy drink like fresh mint and lemon tea is the best option to overcome nausea for mums-to-be. Moreover it's vitamin A (10% of RDA) and vitamin C (20.25%) serve as an additional boost to bring relief from cough, sore throat and also cold. See here for detailed benefits of mint leaves

Coriander (kothmir, dhania) : The antioxidants vitamin Avitamin C and the quercetin present in coriander works towards strengthening our immune system. Coriander is a fairly good source of iron and folate – the 2 nutrient which help in the production and maintenance of red blood cells in our blood. Good for reducing cholesterol and for diabetics. Read 9 benefits of coriander to understand details. 

Onions : Yes, its a great antioxidant. The phytochemical present in onions along with their Vitamin C help boost your immunity. The chromium in onions help regulate your blood pressure.

Green Chilli : Antioxidant vitamin C in green chillies protects the body from effects of harmful free radicals and prevents stress. It is probably the high fiber which helps in controlling blood sugar levels. This it is a welcome addition to a diabetic diet. Suffering from anaemia?

What's the problem?

Sugar : Sugar is also called white poison. It is a simple carbohydrate with zero nutritional value. On intake, sugar will cause inflammation of the body which will last for many hours. It will spike your blood sugar level and shut down the fat burning process. To live a healthy life, try and cut sugar which from your diet. It requires a slow and deliberate attempt to do it. Find hidden sugar in packaged foods and drinks and stop having those products. Did you know that a can of your favourite soft drink is estimated to have 1/2 cup of sugar. 

Can diabetics, heart patients and over weight individuals have Sweet ?

Yes, but for diabetics you need to drop the sugar. Note that 1 cup chutney (42 teaspoons) has only 3 teaspoons of sugar. So the impact is very small for diabetics. But we suggest you remove the sugar and adjust the lemon juice in the recipe. 

Or this with nutritious green chutney recipe which has ZERO sugar used in it made with mint leaves, onions and coriander.

Can healthy individuals have Rotis?

Yes, the usage of sugar is very little so enjoy the chutney.
