Enjoying your Asian Food


There is a lot of variety in Asian cuisine.  It is now possible to cook low fat, healthy and nutritious food.  It has a lot of stir fried fruits, vegetables, fish and meats and the nutritional value also does not get destroyed.  A variety of spices like nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and coriander may be added to improve the taste of the good.

It has been researched and established that Asian cooking has therapeutic properties and has good aroma.  Even the simple chicken stock that is cooked using the Asian style of cooking is extremely healthy and nutritious.  Asian food is incomplete without sodium and Asians include a lot of sodium or table salt that may be reduced in quantity as per your taste buds. Soy sauce is yet another alternative to sodium and it has low calorie content.

Preparation of Stir fry sauce

Stir fry sauce is something which Asians love and their cooking is incomplete without it.  You could make your own stir fry sauce by adding minced garlic, fresh ginger, vegetable oil, dry sherry, sesame oil, and water and corn starch.  After adding all the contents, you need to mix it well and bring it to a boil.    Another famous ingredient is lemon grass.  Many countries use this ingredient and it has a citrus flavour to it.  Ginger is added in most of the recipes.  Citronella is yet another flavour that lends aroma to Asian food.

Citronella is used for relieving stress and insomnia.  Lemon grass contains antifungal and antibacterial properties too and is used in most of the foods prepared. Also, it helps in reducing pimples and acne. Thus, the ingredients used are very healthy and nutritious. A mixture of lemon grass added to lime helps in reducing stress and blood pressure problems.  It is used in most of the dishes in the South East Asian cuisine.

All of us will agree that fast food is not good for the health.  However, it is now possible to make delicious recipes without creating havoc to your health. Grilled vegetables and fruits are a healthy substitute for fried foods and these are low in calories too.

By adopting healthy cooking, you can now make delicious burger meals that are low on calories.  Instead of sipping in coke, you can do with water.  Refrain from using mayonnaise and cheese and you could have a simple small burger instead of a big burger.

Salads can be had along with burgers instead of having the packer of chips.  Refrain from going in for non-vegetarian burger and go in for a vegetarian burger.  You can substitute drumsticks for chicken breast and these are healthy too.  Do not go in for high calorie sauces and stick to homemade vegetable sauces that are equally tasty and low on calories.
