Introduction

WHAT IS KETO DIET?

Ketogenic diets focus on enhancing the process of Ketosis. Ketosis is a natural process wherein the body pledges to help you survive when the food intake is low. During the ketosis process, your body produces ketones which are come from the breakdown of liver fats.
The whole purpose of this diet is to induce the body into the ketosis metabolic state. The main aim here is not to do this through the starvation of calories but instead aim to do this through the starvation of carbs. Which means that the ketogenic diet is carbs-free or very low on carbs. The lower the composition of carbs in your keto diet, the quicker your body produces ketones.

ABOUT PAV BHAJI

The dish originated in the 1850s as a fast lunchtime dish for textile mill workers in Mumbai. Pav bhaji was later served at restaurants throughout the city. Pav bhaji is now offered at outlets from simple handcarts to formal restaurants in India and abroad.
Pav bhaji has many variations in ingredients and garnishes but is essentially a spiced mixture of mashed vegetables in a thick gravy served hot with a soft white bread roll, usually cooked on a flat griddle (also known as tava).
