Tandoori Mushrooms: Now, here’s a healthy dish you are going to fall head-over-heels in love with! Mushrooms are low in calories and a valuable source of protein and folic acid.
Folic acid protects the heart from the harmful action of an amino acid called homocysteine, and is essential for the formation of new red blood cells. If you’re not very fond of mushrooms, try using low-fat paneer or baby corn pieces instead.
