(1) Baasi roti (stale bread) is the answer to these 4 common health issues
Stale food is generally considered harmful for health. It is said eating stale food which is kept for more than 12 hours can lead to diarrhoea, food poisoning, acidity and many other problems. Not only this, it is also said reheating stale food may be fatal for health in some cases.
But just so you know, not all stale foods are harmful for health. There are some grains which even after being stale are beneficial and one of them is wheat. In most Indian households chapatti is usually made using wheat flour. And we Indians have a habit of cooking more than required, and so we usually have leftovers which are either given to cow or dogs. But the stale chapattis can be consumed by you as well. Read on to know the benefits of eating stale chapatti.
According to Dr Priyanka Rohatgi, Senior Consultant, Nutritionist, Apollo Hospital, nutritionally baasi roti is not baasi. As once it's prepared, it doesn't retain any moisture and thus have a longer shelf life. People in North East even have 'khameeri roti', where the wheat is kept for fermentation and its rotis are made later, which is absolutely healthy.
Dr. Priyanaka says baasi roti is completely a safe and healthy option for breakfast. In fact, it's way better than the ready-to-make oats and pohas available in the market.
Baasi roti has all the goodness of wheat, which is rich in fibre, has low sodium content and has a low GI index. All these benefits make baasi roti good for digestion and also great for controlling blood sugar level and weight loss management, adds Dr. Priyanka.
(2) Controls blood pressure
Consuming stale roti with cold milk is said to help people with high blood pressure. Soak the stale roti in cold milk and leave it for 10 minutes. Eat this as your morning breakfast. This can help you in controlling your blood pressure.
(3) Controls body temperature
The normal body temperature is 37 degree Celsius and if it goes beyond 40, it can damage your vital organs. Stale roti soaked in cold milk can work wonders in controlling body temperature as well.
Having the combination of baasi roti and milk as the first thing in the morning provides you with a good number of nutrients and avoids acidity, which in turn also regulates your body temperature.
(4) Good for stomach
People who suffer from constant stomach problems, stale roti is the best home remedy for them. Stomach problems like constipation, acidity and gas can be cured by having stale roti soaked in cold milk before you sleep.
The fibre in it adds bulks to your food and helps relieve constipation, adds Dr. Priyanka.
(5) Control blood sugar level
People suffering from the problem of high blood sugar should definitely try this. Soak the stale roti in cold milk and leave it for 10-15 minute. You can consume this during any time of the day.
Baasi roti is safe to be consumed within 12-15 hours of their preparation. It is advised to have baasi roti with milk and not subzi because milk also has some amazing health benefits and thus the combination can prove to be fruitful.
