Jeera/Cumin for Weight Loss/Digestion
You are already aware that cumin seeds for digestion are widely popular, right? But do you know jeera, which is a quintessential spice in Indian recipes, also helps improve immunity and respiratory disorders. Used extensively as a condiment in the Indian subcontinent, cumin is touted to be a rich source of energy. Surprisingly, the cute little spice is loaded with vitamin A,  B6, C, E , amino acids, and minerals, including calcium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, potassium, copper, and magnesium. It has a substantial amount of carbohydrates and fats & fatty acids.

One teaspoon of cumin is enough to meet your daily requirements.

Cumin adds taste and flavor to simple recipes. But the best thing is that cumin is a weight loss aid. It is rich in an organic compound, Cuminaldehyde, which activates your salivary glands and thus work as a digestion aid.

Second, cumin contains thymol, which stimulates the glands secreting acids, enzymes, bile juice that aid in complete digestion. Cumin is also carminative, which means that it relieves you from gas troubles, and thereby, improves digestion and appetite. Due to its essential oils, magnesium, and sodium content, cumin promotes digestion. Cumin works best when taken with hot water, providing relief from stomach aches.

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.
