So, make sure you check out her list and add these dishes to your diet to ensure you have a super strong immunity where you can’t catch cold or cough easily.

1. Bajra

Rich in minerals and fibre, Rujuta Diwekar encourages you to add bajra to your diet as it helps prevent joint aches. Also, the nutritionist says it’s a millet best enjoyed with ghee or makhan ( butter).

2. Jaggery & Ghee

The second food on your winter foods list is a combination of jaggery and ghee. Rujuta Diwekar says the combination of jaggery and ghee will help prevent cold and clear sinuses. You can pair this with bajra roti and consume it post-lunch and dinner.

3. Kulith

A pulse, kulith, prevents kidney stones and helps the scalp and skin stay better nourished and hydrated. Also it nourishes your skin and scalp in winter. You can enjoy kulith with rice and ghee. In South Indian households, a rasam made with kulith is popular.

4. Makhan

Homemade white butter or makhan ensures your body digests food seamlessly. Also, it makes sure your body is able to assimilate all fat-soluble vitamins like Vitamin D.

5. Til

Healthy for bones, skin and eyes, til or sesame can be consumed in various forms. One can enjoy til chikki, add til as seasoning in dishes, use til oil in cooking or enjoy til gajak.
