Here are our beliefs on the best practices in a kitchen:
1. Only dark brown sugar is used: A tablespoon of molasses is a good source of dietary potassium and small amounts of calcium, magnesium and B vitamins. Recommended dosage: 25 grams of sugar per day. Nonetheless, any added sugar should be reduced and yes, we reduce the brown sugar by about 50% to 70% from the original recipe.
2. No deep-fried foods:The methods used are mainly grilled, air-fried and pan-fried. All with minimal oil.
3. Cleanliness of food: All vegetables and meats are cleaned with filtered water and for some vegetables, scrubbed because of the soil which can contain harmful bacteria.
4. No added flavour enhancers (MSG): Most of the cooking uses a more natural way of cooking like sea salt, pepper, spices and limit usage of sauces to a minimal as they tend to have MSG.
5. Basmati rice and quinoa rock! They are low Glycemic Index grains and higher in nutritional value than the traditional jasmine rice.
