Want to include the goodness of walnuts in your everyday meals? Try these exquisitely easy recipes from celebrity chef Sabyasachi Gorai and enjoy the 'king of nuts' with your family
By Chef Sabyasachi Gorai
As the summer heat is on the wane and the monsoon comes calling, isn't it tempting to roast some nuts to snack on while you savour the pitter-patter of the rain? Nuts are nutrient powerhouses and it is a good idea to serve up a mix of nuts when your children come back hungry from school. Or better still, give your family an energy boost with a nutty evening snack.
One nut that is bursting with nutrients and can also be easily incorporated into both snacks and main dishes is the walnut. Known as the 'king of nuts', walnuts provide you with good fats, vitamins and minerals. Not only do these add flavour and crunch to all sorts of dishes, they are also considered the healthiest of nuts. Walnuts are high in antioxidants and are the only nuts that provide an excellent source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids (2.5 grams of ALA/oz.). A handful of walnuts also offers four grams of protein along with two grams of fibre.
So, be it a simple snack party or sudden hunger pangs, these walnut-based recipes are soon going to be firm favourites among your family members! Put on your aprons and start your walnut cooking adventure with recipes created exclusively by celebrity Chef Sabyasachi Gorai.
