Monsoon Food from Pakodas to Rasam, Buttery Corn On The Cob to Peaches in season
Most of us cannot resist street food, whatever the season. If you can’t stay away from it in the rainy season, remember at least not to eat uncooked food or foods that need high amounts of water, like chaat, golas, kulfis, etc. A good option is freshly roasted bhutta or corn on the cob. Boiled corn seasoned with salt and pepper is also a great idea.
A good idea in the rainy season is to stick to hot foods such as soup. Sip on piping hot rasam; its mix of asafoetida, curry leaves, tomato, red chilli, coconut, mustard seeds, onions, garlic and ginger has an anti-inflammatory effect and also helps prevent joint pains and stiffness.
Add cinnamon to hot water infusions (with honey); this helps keep away water-borne diseases. Try our collection of Teas Ginger Cinnamon Tea, Fresh Mint and Lemon Tea, Lemon Tea, Honey Lemon Tea, and Black Tea
