Staying healthy is as important as Staying Safe | Here is a list of some foods which are proven to keep us healthy

While the entire world is under self quarantine due to rapid increase in coronavirus cases and the daily life has come to standstill. People are been advised to take precautions such as washing hands, wearing gloves, wearing masks, social distancing etc.,

At the same time, maintaining a healthy diet to keep yourself fit and improve your immune system is also very much important to keep this virus at bay.

There is no such research done as on which food helps to fight against COVID-19. However, there are certain foods which can helps us stay fit and strengthen our body’s ability to fight with other invasive viruses.

Here is the list of some foods which are proven to keep us healthy by the experts, along with the innovative ideas on how to add them to your diet.

Red bell peppers

If you think citrus fruits have the most vitamin C of any fruit or vegetable, think again. Ounce for ounce, red bell peppers contain twice as much vitamin C as citrus. They’re also a rich source of beta carotene. Besides boosting your immune system, vitamin C may help maintain healthy skin. Beta carotene helps keep your eyes and skin healthy. 

Slicing one up and eating it raw with hummus as a crunchy snack or mixing some into your salad. If you prefer them cooked, throw a handful in a pan for a quick stir-fry.


Broccoli has an impressive nutritional profile. It is “high in fiber, very high in vitamin C and has potassium, B6 and vitamin A. Broccoli is also packed with phytochemicals and antioxidants. Phytochemicals are chemicals in plants that are responsible for color, smell and flavor. Research shows that they have numerous healthful benefits, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research. Phytochemicals in broccoli are good for the immune system. They include glucobrassicin; carotenoids, such as zeaxanthin and beta-carotene; and kaempferol, a flavonoid.

Fortunately, there are a variety of ways that you can make broccoli a part of your diet, as its a lot more versatile than you may think. Either steamed or raw, broccoli can be added to stir fry dishes, omelets in the morning, and even in your protein shakes or smoothies.


Chickpeas are super rich in protein, vitamins B6, C, folate, manganese, calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. These rich nutritional profiles of Chickpeas provide you with a host of health benefits.

Chickpeas are an excellent source of zinc and copper the prominent minerals potent to the growth and functioning of immune cells and boosting the immune system. A cup of cooked Chickpeas provide you with 30% of RDA of copper and about 17% of RDA of zinc.

Toss soaked Chickpeas in oil, peppered with some salt or stir into your gravy to go well with roti, these yummy seeds will keep you satiated for a long time providing your body with its daily dose of protein and nutrition.


Humans are incapable of producing Vitamin C naturally, and therefore it’s important for us to turn to external sources. About a cup of strawberries a day gives us our daily requirement of Vitamin C, which in return boosts our immunity, and works as a brilliant antioxidant. The vitamin C in strawberries also helps in the strengthening of the eye’s cornea and retina.

Top whole-grain waffles, pancakes, or oatmeal with fresh strawberries, or fold them into muffins and sweetbreads. You can also blend strawberries in a food processor with a little water and use as a fresh syrup to top desserts or breakfast foods. Mix cut strawberries into a spinach salad with walnuts


Garlic is found in almost every cuisine in the world. It adds a little zing to food and it’s a must-have for your health. Early civilizations recognized its value in fighting infections. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative HealthTrusted Source, garlic may also help lower blood pressure and slow down hardening of the arteries. Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.

A common way to use garlic is to press a few cloves of fresh garlic with a garlic press, then mix it with extra virgin olive oil and a bit of salt. This a healthy and super satisfying dressing. Summary Garlic is delicious and easy to add to your diet. You can use it in savory dishes, soups, sauces, dressings and more


All types of edible mushrooms contain varying degrees of protein and fibre. They also contain B vitamins as well as a powerful antioxidant called selenium, which helps to support the immune system and prevent damage to cells and tissues.

  • Cut up a small mushroom and mix it in to omelets, quiches, or scrambled eggs at breakfast or brunch.
  • Slice some mushroom into your pasta sauce. Mushrooms can also add great flavor and texture to nearly any side dish.


Spinach made our list not just because it’s rich in vitamin C. It’s also packed with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene, which may increase the infection-fighting ability of our immune systems. Similar to broccoli, spinach is healthiest when it’s cooked as little as possible so that it retains its nutrients. However, light cooking enhances its vitamin A and allows other nutrients to be released from oxalic acid.  Spinach is a versatile vegetable and can be eaten raw or cooked.

  • Add spinach to pastas, soups, and casseroles.
  • Lightly saute spinach in a small amount of extra virgin olive oil.
  • Add spinach to a wrap, sandwich, or flatbread.


Look for yogurts that have “live and active cultures” printed on the label, like Greek yogurt. These cultures may stimulate your immune system to help fight diseases

You can sweeten plain yogurt yourself with healthy fruits and a drizzle of honey instead.

Yogurt can also be a great source of vitamin D, so try to select brands fortified with vitamin D. Vitamin D helps regulate the immune system and is thought to boost our body’s natural defenses against diseases.

Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are full of nutrients, including phosphorousmagnesium, and vitamin B-6. They’re also incredibly high in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin E is important in regulating and maintaining immune system function

You can add sunflower seeds to soft preparations that may include scrambled eggs in order to give them a crunchy texture. Roasted or salted sunflower seeds can be considered as a healthy snack. You can add them in your breakfast cereals to improve their nutritive value.

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy!

Kairali Al Tanoor – a taste of the authentic tandoor restaurant

Kairali Al Tanoor – a taste of the authentic tandoor restaurantKairali Al Tanoor, Doha,Qatar – a taste of the authentic tandoor restaurant

By Mr & Mrs. Foody

The Midmac flyover is one of the busiest intersections in Doha under which runs one of the oldest roundabouts in town with a service road that leads to one of the finest tandoor restaurants in the city the Kairali Al-Tanoor

It is a branch of the Kairali group of restaurants  – one the largest non-vegetarian chains in the city of Mangalore, Karnataka. It was founded in November 2000 offering authentic North/South Indian, Tandoor, Chinese and Mangalorean coastal cuisine.

One of the first things that catch our eyes as we enter the well-lit reception area is the open tandoor ovens placed strategically behind huge glass-paneled walls where bakers expertly dish out piping hot tandoori rotis from the oval pits.

Kairali literally means originating from Kerala and Tanoor means Tandoor in Arabic.

The restaurant as we experienced later stayed true to its name and fame of serving one of the best tandoori multi-cuisine meals in Qatar.

The aesthetically decorated upstairs dining area is a gentle blend of grey and brown with wooden matching furniture and a spacious yet intimate indoor seating blending seamlessly with perfect lighting and hygienically spotless interiors.

We are warmly greeted with the soft-spoken, affable youthful Rashad A Rehman, COO – Kairali Group of Restaurants who suggested we start with the cool complimentary melon fruit welcome drink.Kairali Al Tanoor Restaurant Interiors, Doha,Qatar

As we scan through the elaborate menu, we are served with a lemon coriander soup that was mouth-wateringly delicious and something we had never tasted before. A perfect blend of lemon with a hint of coriander, not too tangy or lemony with succulent small pieces of chicken, set the right tone for starters to follow. The soup is also available in mutton and veg versions.

The starters were spicy but very succulent Angaraa Chicken Kebabs served with green mint chutney followed by grilled prawns that came in three different flavours of Haryali, Malai and Multani…all finger-licking good and served on sticks in a mini rectangular bar-bar-que container with a small chunk of simmering coal at the bottom to keep the grilled shrimps warm.

The main course was a creamy Punjabi Chicken Curry served in a silver coloured bowl tastefully plated with semi-circled cut tomatoes that lined the dish. Click here to get the full menu

The rotis accompanying the curry were traditional Kerala paratas and tandoori rotis but what stole the bread show and probably available only at Kairali was the typical soft but not oily or mushy Delhi nan that just melted the moment it touch the tongue – a specialty from the famous North Indian roti tavas of Kannilal and Munilal.

The chicken dish had spices cleverly toned down to compliment the earlier hot spicy Chicken Angaara.

The special Mutton Cholo rice flavoured in the biryani style had the right mix of masala and long rice and is one of their signature dishes. This rice version is also available in chicken and prawn versions. Beetroot pickle and Raita were complimentary sides that fitted perfected with the main course.

We washed these delicacies down with a delicious super cool signature mock-tail named Cinderella – a unique mixture of strawberry, litchi, orange, and pineapple.

The crème de la crème in the desserts was the homemade style cashew ice cream – not too sweet but cool and creamy topped with a cashew nut… if only they had 31 more other flavours! And a must was the traditional popular dessert  – the Hyderbadi Shahi Tukda – a typical deep-fried moist bread pudding.

All the dishes were reasonably priced with friendly service and the 108 seating is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  According to the Chief Chef, “All dishes are prepared by different chefs who specialize in that particular type of cuisine.”

The menu boasts of a wide variety of multi-sensory North/South Indian and Chinese cuisine ‘that marries bold flavours with exquisite presentation and signature dishes including Kerala Dry Chicken Biryani, Chicken Cheese Roll, Chicken 90, Prawns Butter Garlic and Boti Kebabs.’

The washrooms were well lit and extremely clean and well equipped with all the necessary toiletries, a feature some restos sadly lack.

While dining, COO Rashad took us down memory lane and recalled how his father A V Abdul Rahiman along with his partner K.P. Esmail discovered in the early 21st century that there were practically no restaurants in Mangalore offering multi-cuisine fare. So the duo came up with an 18-room hotel and a restaurant named Kairali.

Kairali started operations with well-maintained hygienic surroundings, the proper appearance of the service staff and the usage of top quality fresh ingredients which stood as different from what was then available. Gradually, the food became popular and a trademark for high quality and affordability, catering to both, the classes and the masses. Kairali soon became a well-known restaurant and a landmark for the guests in and around town,” Rashad said.

“Today, Kariali has four branches in Mangalore and employs over 200 staff. The brand name Kairali has become synonymous with Indian Multi Cuisine restaurants, catering to the demands of our patrons located all over Karnataka and our neigbouring state of Kerala. We believe in preserving the exquisite traditions of our Indian multi-cuisine and have plans to reach out to the world,” Rashad explained.

“Furthermore, we are making progress on our key 2018 initiatives. I love the fact that we are a passionate team with expertise in the resto business and serve a large and ever-growing customer base. The company has been growing steadily and is now seeking to dramatically accelerate growth. We are confident that with our unique economic model, we are all set to expand both nationally and internationally,” Rashad concluded.

In this day and age of social media, a host of other promo tools are readily available on fingertips but the ‘word-of-mouth’ mantra still stands firm – surpassing all other forms of advertising. And we as Mr & Mrs. Foody stepped out after a sumptuous dinner with the mutual thought that informing our family and friends of Kairali – Al Tanoor was a given.
