342. Winter season food

Every meal doesn’t have to revolve around potatoes and onions. With a bit of advanced planning and creativity, it’s possible to eat fresh fruits and vegetables with plenty of nutrients and flavor all winter long.
Winter food generally includes soups, hot beverages, appetizers etc. We need instant energy to work. Whatever we eat, it should be hot.
Those who like lemon tea, can take it. Others can try hot water with lemon juice and honey. Vegetable soup, corn soup or tomato soup are also good for winter.  The tea lovers can put ginger, elaichi and lavang while preparing tea.
The children and some elders like to have fried items during winter. They can keep a limit for these items, if not able to avoid totally.
Garlic rasam helps to fight the cold. The green, yellow and red colour capsicum can be used in side dish for chapathi or multi-colour capsicum rice can be prepared. The tasty bajra(kambu) dosa is a good choice for winter. We get fresh cauli-flower and cabbage during winter season. In all side-dish items, put a piece of these two, to get the taste and energy. Peas and carrot are other options. Have you tried carrot-ginger soup so far?  Please try this now.
We can take healthy salads, soups,  hot beverages and tasty roti/rice with hot side-dish during this winter. Enjoy winter.
