Vitamin D-Rich Recipe: This Dahi-Mushroom Sabzi Is Just What You Need For A Fulfilling Meal (Recipe Inside)


Highlights

  • Vit-D deficiency lead to low immunity, weak bones, respiratory troubles
  • Sunlight is the most natural source of vitamin D
  • Load yourself with vitamin D-enriched food

Vitamin D has been in the news for some time now. Also called ‘sunshine vitamin’, it is one important nutrient that our body needs for various functions. Moreover, it has a greater implication during the ongoing situation (read: Coronavirus pandemic). As per an earlier study published in ‘The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism’, 80 percent people affected by COVID-19 may suffer from vitamin D deficiency, which can further lead to low immunity, weak bones, respiratory troubles and more. Vitamin D deficiency may also lead to hair loss, obesity and overweight and related severities (diabetes, cholesterol et al). Hence, health experts across the globe are time and again stressing on nutrient-rich diet for healthy living.

While sunlight is the most natural source of vitamin D, we all are being extra cautious about stepping out of home during the pandemic. Instead, we can consider including vitamin D-enriched food items in everyday meals for overall nourishment. Two of the most popular sources of vitamin D are mushroom and yogurt. For the unversed, mushroom is a storehouse of vitamin D2 and yogurt is packed with 5 IU of vitamin D per 8-ounce (as per USDA data).

Keeping this in mind, we bring you a simple sabzi made with yogurt and mushroom that can be included in your diet for daily vitamin D-fix. It is quick, fuss-free and can be whipped up with just a few basic ingredients we have in our kitchen. Let’s check out the recipe!
