In this article he is providing us with some valuable information on healthy desserts.


Many times we resist ourselves from desserts because of health reasons. But here is some good news for all sweet toothed people out there. It has been proved that desserts can play a role in improving your heart health. A few simple changes in the way we live and choosing the healthy options to eat can work wonder for your cardiovascular health and help you get rid of issues like heart attack and such others. A healthy diet for healthy heart does not mean depriving yourself from tasty dishes and following only boring and bland diet. There are plenty of lip-smacking dishes that are equally healthy and one of such healthy options is dessert.

A favourite of all dessert lovers, dark chocolate has lots of health benefits; it is loaded with antioxidants, reduces stickiness of blood, helps reducing blood pressure and enhances blood flow. All these aid to improve the cardiovascular health to a great extent. Dark chocolate that comes from plants is a rich source of antioxidants. The cacao beans from which the original dark chocolate is made is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

The people who are suffering from high blood pressure can find it great as it helps in relaxing the arteries and make it widen so that the blood pressure is lowered. It also helps to prevent plaque from getting built up and thus reduces the risk of heart attack. But before including chocolates in your daily regime make sure that it is only dark chocolate as most of the milk chocolates lack in high concentration of healthy compounds. As the healing benefits lie in the cacao bean, choose only those chocolates that come with high percentage of cocoa. To get the greatest health benefits check out the contents of the chocolate and be sure that it contains high percentage of cocoa and is low in fat and sugar. Above all, it is important to keep in mind that every good thing should be taken in moderate amount as too much of anything can be bad. So take consideration of calories and fat and reap the health benefits with dark chocolate.

The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
