No More Parathas....

Here's some sobering news for people(myself included) who like Indian food:

" A new research has found that Western food is a lesser evil than the Indian bhatura or parathas. Digest this — while the trans-fatty acids (hydrogenated oils and fats) in French fries (per 100 gm) is 4.2%-6.1%, it is 9.5% in bhatura, 7.8% in paratha and 7.6% each in puri and tikkis. " (link)

Well I'll be.......here I was thinking that I had significantly healthier eating habits than my mates who head to Macs and other fast food joints every chance they get!
