Is Amiri Khaman healthy?

Yes and No, it depends who is eating it. Amiri Khaman is made of besan for khaman dhokla, coriander, coconut and sev for garnishing.

Let's understand the ingredients.

What's good.

Besan : Besan has more good fat than whole wheat flour and also more protein content. Rich in complex carbohydrates and with a low glycemic index, besan is good for diabetics too. See detailed benefits of besan and why it's good for you. 

Coconut : Used in small quantity. The fresh coconut has saturated fats but most of it is MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) which promote weight loss. The high fibre content 13.6 gm (45.3% of RDA) along with high lauric acid content of coconut improves cholesterol levels in the body. Improving the action of insulin secretion and lowering the raised blood sugar levels is yet another benefit of coconut for Diabetics. See here for 10 amazing benefits of coconut.

Coriander (kothmir, dhania) : 2 tablespoons used. 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 RBC in our blood. Good for reducing cholesterol and for diabetics.

What's the problem with Amiri Khaman?

Deep fried foods : 3 tablespoons of deep fried Sev is used in the recipe. Any food that is deep fried is not suitable for healthy living. You're fat levels increase as deep frying increases oil absorption. Also when you use the same oil again for deep frying then smoking point decreases which leads to the development of blue smoke which is not good for health. It also increases inflammation in the body and shuts down the fat burning process.
