Gajarachi Koshimbir (Carrot Salad)
One-vegetable salads are a common part of Indian meals. Carrots are rich in vitamin A and contain high amounts of vitamins C and K. Vitamin A supports eye health, and vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen, which strengthens skin. They also contain plant compounds called carotenoids, which act as antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your skin from damage by fighting unstable molecules called free radicals (which are responsible for aging.) The potassium and antioxidants in carrots help lower blood pressure and promote heart health. Compounds in carrot juice have even been shown to trigger cancer cell death in some test-tube studies. Apart from all these, as a rich source of vitamins A, B6, and C, carrots help strengthen your immune system.
