Punjabi dishes are rich in protein, and if we start utilizing them in certain ways, we can benefit the most out of the nutrients that are present in them. With the right mix, you can get the proper nutrients you need for your fitness journey.

There are a number of things that are done wrongly when Indians cook Punjabi dishes. The first one is they use too much oil and the oil that we use contains a lot of fat, which is really bad for our health. Most dishes that are cooked are drowned in oils, use a lot of spices, salt, or even sugar. In order to make a dish healthy, you need to balance everything in a way that you can still get the nutrients of the vegetables.
Punjabi dishes are known for their vegetarian cuisine which offers amazing tastes and flavors. But the only problem is that Indians are not cooking those dishes in the right way.
