Falhari Pizza

Pizza is the current favorite of everyone.However,one thing that bugs me is the plain flour.I constantly think how we can make it healthier.One way is making it gluten-free.You can also make it vegan if that is your choice.Make it fresh instead of buying base from the store.You can use cauliflower as a base but that makes it bit delicate to handle.Other method is using gluten-free flour like buckwheat. Not many people know, Indian cuisine has a lot of gluten-free flatbreads .We make this kuttu ki roti or buckwheat bread a lot during our fasting period.Generally people eat once a day and use gluten-free flour only.We use this as a base to make our pizza.Here,we have used ingredients which as used in fasting.Thus creating our special falhari pizza.

If you are not fasting,you may use any topping with this base.Create your own healthy version and enjoy!

Usual diet during fasting

Fasting is a way to practice self control.It has its set of rules which helps the body detox.

We pray and eat only gluten-free flours.We do not consume onions,tomatoes,garlic.We can eat certain root vegetables,dairy and fruits. We can consume only certain spices. Ginger,dried mango powder, green chillies and black pepper are allowed.We use rock salt instead of sea salt.

Generally, we eat one meal a day.Usually on sunset.It is a great way to clear your mind and body.Prayers detox your soul while abstaining from food detoxes the body.
