    Dear Friends......

    We all use mustard seeds for tempering.......

    The humble mustard seed has lots of vitamins and minerals packed in it......:thumbsup

    Mustard seeds contain....

    Vitamins... A, B-Complex,C,D,E and K:thumbsup

    Minerals....Calcium,Iron,Magnesium,Phosphorus,
    Potasium,Sodium,Zinc,Copper,Manganese, Selanium, Floride:thumbsup

    Phyto nutrients....Beta Carotene and others....:thumbsup

    Daily use of mustard seeds is like having a multi- vitamin , multi-mineral supplement.......:thumbsup:-):thumbsup

    I think that is why we have this adage in Tamil.....

    கடுகு சிறுத்தாலும் காரம் குறையாது......meaning Though the mustard seeds are tiny...the power is not less.....used to praise someone who is small but had accomplished something big...... mustard.jpg

    yes , all our anjarapetti [ masala dabba ] items are packed with nutrition & medicinal values.

    good to know abt the mustard benefits in detail. but we have to splutter it properly .

    thanks for the thread !

    Though we use some tiny items like this in our daily food we will not know the real value . Thanks for the brief info about the mustard.

    Thank for nice positng,,,
