Dr Dixa Bhavsar, ayurvedic expert, shared an easy recipe from her mother while pointing out why matar or peas is good for you.
Pea is a nutrient-rich legume, which is slightly sweet in taste. “It is rich in vitamins K and C and minerals like manganese. Since it is packed with antioxidants; it also helps build immunity. Pea is also preferred for its high iron content, which you don’t get in every other food. And above all, peas are in the season now, so why not?”
Note: “Peas are dry and cold in nature, so for people suffering from extreme body ache, bloating and constipation, I’d recommend you’ll to have it just once-twice/month,” she highlighted.
