The moment you finish this meal, you will not only feel satiated but also full of vigour due to the fact that the plate contains a lot of nutrient dense foods. 

Keerai Masiyal and the salad add a lot of colour to the plate whilst the spinach adding to your daily iron and calcium intake, tasting just as great as to its nutritive value. Boiled Eggs, Chana dal and Curd add a huge boost of protein to your diet, keeping you fuller longer and filled with energy for a long time.
