It’s time for some sprouts indulgence at Tingle Your Taste Buds! I still very clearly remember an incident when during a casual conversation, I told someone that I had sprouts for breakfast. The reaction was – “Oh what along with it?” and I said “Nothing, just that.” which was responded to with “Really? It was enough?”. Well, the answer truly is that it is more than enough and am sure all sprout lovers across the globe will concur with me. In India, traditionally sprouts have never really been an integral part of our diet.

Yoghurt, Yogurt, Dahi, Curd – the health benefits of this wonder with several names is not unknown. I have always been a huge fan of yogurt and it has been an integral part of my diet since childhood. What truly amazes me about yogurt is that it can be had in so many different forms and it can be used to prepare various dishes – this is why I call it a wonder! It is the best thing to have on a heavy or an upset stomach, and having it on a hot or tiring day almost gives a feel of having something divine or pious (The authentic Punjabi lassi is actually referred to as amrit by many).
