Seeds are known to be quite effective when it comes to addressing numerous health problems. One such is sabja seeds, a type of sweet basil or tulsi seeds, also called Falooda seeds. Usually consumed after soaking in water, two teaspoons contain only 40 calories, but they are nutrient-dense. Soaking them in one cup of warm water for about 15 minutes causes the seeds to fully swell up, which releases antioxidants that are beneficial for digestive enzymes.
The black and tear-shaped seeds, that seem similar to chia seeds, are rich in proteins, carbs and essential fats and packed with a good deal of fibre. Sabja seeds are full of iron, Vitamin K and protein.
Since these seeds do not really have a distinct taste, they can be added to a variety of dishes to enhance nutritional value. They are great as a garnish for drinks and desserts, blended in lemonade or sprinkled over kulfi.
Cures cold and cough
