The Kitchen not only for satisfies the taste buds but also has the power to heal ailments and re-energize. There are many condiments, herbs and spices which not only add flavor to the food but also contain great medicinal properties veiled in them.

I am sharing some home remedies which I have found to be helpful to address common health issues at home. In olden times these spices and herbs were considered the as first line of treatment to aid and mitigate majority of ailments and till today hold an important relevance to those who know how to use them.

Enumerated below are few of the healing properties of various spices and seasonings usually available in our kitchen:

It boosts the immune system, lowers cholesterol and controls blood pressure. It improves heart’s wellness.

Lemon boosts immunity, prevent asthma, lower stroke risks and flush out the toxins from your body.

  • TURMERIC: This star ingredient in kitchen is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties helping to ease inflammation and swelling. It prevents Alzheimer’s and arthritis. It helps in depression as well. Moreover, turmeric is widely used for cosmetic purposes. Using it in homemade face masks adds glow and luster to the skin and rejuvenates it.

I cannot help myself to share KIN HUBBARDS’s words here

“And yet of all the home remedies, a good wife and mother is still the best.”



Almost everyone consumes flour as a key ingredient while preparing food whether it is wheat flour or any other flour like – gram flour, millet flour, barley flour etc. Wheat flour is most commonly used in India (especially in north India) where no dish is complete without being served with a flat bread. Now when people are getting more aware of nutrition from different sources to maintain their health, various types of flours are used in cooking. A lot of healthier variants of packed food items have also been introduced in market as well, for example only white bread made of refined flour was the only option available earlier in breads, but now to make it tastier and healthier, brown atta bread, multigrain bread etc. have also been introduced in the market.



I am sharing here the name of few of my tried and tested recipes which you can try to definitely tingle your taste buds and as an healthier alternative. Let’s check them out:

  • Wheat flour: Wheat flour is conceivably unavoidable ingredient in Indian cuisine in either of its form to make a traditional meal complete. Besides chapattis, pooris and parathas try any of these whole wheat flour recipes:
  • Wheat bread
  • Whole wheat pizza base
  • Atta dosa (mixed with spices, herbs, and condiments of your choice)
  • Sweet wheat cheela
  • cakes (all purpose flour can easily be replaced with wheat flour to bake pastries and brownies)
  • fruit pancakes
  • wheat appam
  • whole wheat momos
  • wheat naan etc.


  • Millet flour: Millet is a pearl size grain in grey color, packed with loads of nutrition. It is a boon for gluten sensitive people with a rich amount of antioxidants, nutrients. Food recipes which can be prepared with millet flour are:
  • chapattis , commonly known as ‘Bajre ki roti’
  • millet porridge : to keep you warm in winters
  • bajre ki rabdi : its a very popularly relished dish in Rajasthan generally combined with either milk or chaas(butter milk)
  • millet flour cookies


  • Rice flour: I assumed that there is hardly anyone who dislikes rice. Rice contains loads of proteins, insoluble fibers, magnesium, iron etc. which helps in reducing blood sugar level and boost the metabolism resulting in weight loss, if consumed in limits. Rice is widely used as a gluten free substitute as well. Rice flour is used in many ways, such as:
  • Rice noodles
  • Rice flour pancakes
  • Ukkad (Maharashtrian dish)
  • A nourishing ingredient used for face mask to rejuvenate skin
  • Rice flour coconut fritters


  • Gram flour: Gram flour or ‘Besan’ has been a staple in Indian cuisine for ages and a fond gluten free substitute for wheat flour as well. Some of cooking delights with gram flour are:
  • Desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth : Mysore pak, besan nan khatai, ladoos, and many more.
  • Fritters
  • Masala roti
