So often we
hear that the only source of calcium in the USA is dairy products. When you eat
common vegan Indian dishes, did you know that you may be consuming lots of
calcium? For example, one bowl of Chana Masala (chickpea curry) contains 61 mg.
of calcium, 2 small Masala Dosas (crèpes with spicy potato filling) have
56 mg. of calcium, and Palak Kofta Curry (3-4 fried
balls of spinach) have 169 mg. of calcium. To see charts listing the calcium
content of Indian cereal and lentil dishes, Indian snack food items, and Indian
dessert foods, visit: https://www.vrg.org/journal/vj2009issue4/2009_issue4_calcium_indian.php
