In this book, Shilpa has also tried to bust common myths about Indian food like how it's high on sodium and very fattening, which isn't true. Says Shilpa, "A simple dish like rajma chawal is a complete meal, it has the right amount of protein, nine amino acids; it's equivalent to eating an egg. But people are now into quinoa instead."

The book talks about the nutritional value of the locally grown and sourced that make up for a perfect diet. Along with a healthy mix of recipes, the book tells you how to burn fat effectively, and makes it a total win. You can grab a copy on amazon.in.
