Lal Math Bhaji Recipe

Lal Saag/ Lal Math is known as Red Spinach in English. It is a very nutritious leafy vegetable but not as common as Spinach. This humble vegetable is a rich source of dietary fibre and excellent for digestion. It has high iron content so it helps improve the haemoglobin levels in the body and thus treat anaemia. Consuming Lal Saag is also good for hair health and for improving the eyesight.

The Protein content in Lal Math helps in reducing the insulin levels in the blood and releases hormones that help in proper control of hunger pangs. Thus it helps in weight management and weight loss. Apart from the above mentioned, there are many other benefits of this less consumed leafy vegetable. So make it a regular part of your meal and reap the benefits 🙂
