It is the season of leafy vegetables and saag like palak (spinach), methi (fenugreek), broccoli, radish and peas that are either not available for the rest of the year or not of as good quality. Peas are rich in both rron and fiber which are vital minerals for the body. Fiber-rich peas can also help us feel fuller for longer, which can aid in weight loss.
