Sweet, Kheer and Dessert Recipes…

In our Indian Cuisine eating sweet, dessert or kheer after meals is a habit. Rather than a physiological sugar craving, the desire occurs simply because you’re used to ending your meal with a sweet. It’s something you want versus something your body actually needs.

Unbalanced meals that lead to an uneven blood-sugar level may also be to blame. For example, a meal comprised primarily of refined starchy foods that are quickly digested (eg. rice) will cause your blood sugar (glucose) to spike after eating. Soon after eating, this glucose soar is followed by a drop, causing you to crave sugar.

Sugar cravings that strike after a meal may be due to serotonin, a feel-good brain chemical that’s associated with an elevated mood. Eating a sugary dessert causes serotonin levels to rise in the brain, which can make you feel calmer and happier. Eat balanced meals. Finish your meal with a little, nutritious sweet dessert and satisfy your sweet tooth naturally with any of the following recipes.

  2. Mango Kesari…
  3. Pasi Paruppu Payasam // Moong Dal Kheer
