Have the monsoon showers got you reaching out for that cup of garam chai and a steaming plate of pakodas? Halt right there! While the rain may bring you respite from the scorching heat, it also brings with it a series of infections and the occasional flu. It is important to arm ourselves against these ailments to make the most of the lovely weather. So before you set out on a long drive to that cosy, obscure cafe, that serves chai and snacks just the way you like them, read through this list of food items you should avoid in the rainy season - We have also mentioned all the substitutes for your junk food cravings, from Mandala. So satisfy your cravings and also keep yourself healthy. It's a two in one combination,which means you can eat to your heart's content and also keep yourself healthy!


Fried Food:

Yes, you read that right. Fried food is one of the food items you should absolutely avoid this rainy season and science backs us up on this too. The highly humid monsoon weather causes our digestion process to slow down. However irresistible that spread of pakodas, samosas and kachodi may seem, they could cause gastronomical complications like bloating and stomach upset. Extra salty food also causes water retention.

Instead of Fried Food, one should have the charcoal activated pulled chicken burger,which is served with sweet potatoes fries, which is tasty and good for you. Sweet potatoes are fat free and an excellent source of vitamin A. So whenever you're craving for fries, always remember to have sweet potatoes fries, from a well known place, such as mandala.


Sea Food:

Monsoon is the breeding season for fish and prawns so they are best avoided this time of the year. Stick to chicken and mutton to satiate your craving for non-vegetarian food. However, if it absolutely essential to have seafood, make sure you only consume the freshest variety of it, taking extra care to cook them well.

Instead of Sea Food, one should have healthy bowls and sandwiches, from any good known place, which cooks fresh and clean food and uses good quality chicken, meat, and fish, example Mandala. At Mandala, we tend to satisfy our customer's cravings, and at the same time keep them healthy.

When you start a diet, one instantly assumes that they will be consuming bland and boring food and endless unexciting salads but mandala proves this stereotypical thinking wrong!Our main goal is to keep our customers healthy and serve them food, that can besavoured while being on a diet or health spree!

For all you non-vegetarian lovers, dishes such as the smoked chicken sandwich, vietnamese banh mi sandwich, and the sri lankan rice (chicken) bowl, etc, is the perfect substitute for all your non-vegetarian food cravings.

This monsoon satisfy your cravings and stay fit with Mandala food!!!
