Strengthen Your Immune System with 4 Indian Dishes

In today’s day and age, staying healthy is of utmost priority—whether it’s because you want to look as fit as an Instagram model or because you want to strengthen your immune system to transition toward a healthier lifestyle.

In times like these, when you’re desperately trying to stay fit, our cravings reach new heights—especially when it comes to Indian food. So while you’re depriving yourself of all the tasty and spicy Indian dishes, why do it when you can devour healthy Indian dishes?

Here are a few appetizing Indian dishes that won’t just leave you wanting for more, but will also strengthen your immune system! Let’s take a look at what some of them are!


Packed with protein and amazing flavors, daal is one of the most sought-out Indian dishes—not just because of its rich and earthy flavor, but also because of how it combines several healthy ingredients and spices. Made from lentils, daal is packed with fiber, folates, and vitamin B6. You can also add some meat to the mix to up your protein intake! All in all, this delicious and healthy Indian dish will always make us drool, no matter what time of the day it is.

Tandoori chicken

Ah, this flagship protein-rich dish of the Indian cuisine is to die for. The fiery red color of the fine chicken, combined with the equally tantalizing spices that set your mouth on fire but also leave you wanting more, is nothing short of a dream come true.

The charred flavor of the tandoori chicken that’s brought about by the stone vessel it’s cooked in also makes this dish a healthy one—why? It has no excess fat!

Chana masala

Indians have a knack for making the most boring ingredients come to life, and that’s precisely what chana masala does! Even if you hate chickpeas, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with this tasty dish. The chickpeas and legumes are rich in iron, fiber, and vitamin B to keep you fresh and energized all day. The blend of garlic, chili, and ginger makes this dish a perfect meal—no matter what time of the day it is!


Who doesn’t love a combination of fresh meat that’s grilled to pure perfection? Kebabs are a sight to behold! The mere smell of it is sure to send chills down your spine, and the delicious mix of spices and meat come together to create the perfect balance of flavors in your mouth—instantly turning you into a kebab-lover for life! Mix this protein-rich dish with some tomato chutney and rice, and you’ve got yourself a healthy meal that will give nutritionists a run for their money.
