Okra with onion, tomatoes & freshly pound spices
Do pyaza refers to the onions being used in two ways for this dish. Diced onions are first fried with spices, and then larger pieces of onions are added towards the end. It is a spicy dish but it is also slightly sweet from the onions
1. It keeps you feeling full
Okra’s dietary fiber helps you feel full for longer, which will keep you from snacking on those stray potato chips after dinner.
2. It’s great for your digestion
The fiber is the main factor here again. High fiber content is great for the digestive tract and keeps you going more regularly. This not only helps keep your weight down, but makes you healthier over all.
3. It’s a low calorie food
It’s always nice when a food can satisfy your hunger and help you stay trim. The low caloric count of okra means you can definitely scoop another spoonful onto your dish and still see the numbers go down on the scale.
4. It’s a diuretic
That means it helps the body detoxify itself and helps you shed excess water weight. A great weapon in your arsenal for de-bloating!
5. It helps control cholesterol levels
The pectin in okra lowers LDL or bad cholesterol, which improves cardiac function.
