Nool Kole / Navilu Kosu Saasive

Sasive is Mustard seeds based curry. It is very easy and yummy to have it with main dishes like plain rice, chapati, poori, dose, idli, rotti etc.

Nool kole is known as Navilu Kosu in Kannada/Karnataka/Indian
Sasive is one of the traditional dish from South Canara/Udupi, Malenaadu and some places in North Canara. Though there will be bit difference in preparing the healthy benefits are almost same.
I have used Nool Kole, beans, coconut, mustard seeds, ingh, cashew nuts, green chilly and little ginger.

Let us see some benefits of " Ginger " in our diet.

Ginger is packed with medicinal values. It is good for digestion. It is filled with anti-inflammatory properties. It is good for stomach upset. It helps in preventing heart disease. It is good for diabetic patients.  It helps to control the sugar level in our body. It helps in chronic indigestion. Ginger helps to control the cholesterol level in our body. It helps to fight infection.
NO Onion or NO Garlic is used in this Nool KOle & Beans Sasive.
