For a long time, my mother used to make this 'sabji' every weekend for me and made sure that I finish a bowl every time. This has been a tradition in our house since... can't tell you my age but forever! Now I understand what was the reason behind it and it was the health benefits it has besides being tasty! At that time it was all about blood circulation, digestion, vitamin C and heart health but now I look at the fact that it helps in reducing stress and yup the weight loss.

Blood Circulation

It also has iron and copper content which is good for red blood cell production, reducing chances of developing anemia and increasing blood flow and blood flow.

Lotus stem has a good amount of potassium which ensures a proper balance between the fluids in the body. It also counteracts the effect of sodium in our bloodstreams. Potassium relaxes the blood vessels and lessens the contraction and rigidity. It also helps in increasing blood flow and reduces the strain on the cardiovascular system.

Reduces Stress
