Consequently, the biggest myth about potatoes is that they are fattening. This needs to be demolished right away. Potatoes can only be fattening with the way they are cooked, and not as a primary source for the same. If you’re eating them in the form of fried foods, they will be 100 per cent fattening. If potatoes are baked, roasted, cooked in minimal oil or even boiled, they are only full of vitamin C and vitamin B-6.
The foremost thing we need to remember while consuming potatoes is the food combination. Since a medium sized potato contains 163 calories, we need to be careful to combine it with foods that are less heavy on your stomach and body to digest. Potatoes do not make our stomach bloated, but rather other foods that we end up consuming with them. For example, with fries, if you eat a burger, you will feel end up feeling bloated.
Eating potatoes individually will satiate your hunger for a longer time and will also provide all its benefits. In our classic Indian diet, potatoes are cooked in the form of subzi and paranthas and hence, are one of the healthiest options for our desi bodies.
