Dry Fruits – Nutrition suiting our taste buds

I don’t know about you guys but I am a complete foodie. I like trying different types of foodstuff or cuisines. Our shopping methods have changed in the recent times; we shop from our good old kirana shops to food malls to online shopping portals or brands shops. Online shopping portal can be having multiple categories catering to all needs right from attire, home needs, decor to food stuff like Amazon, Snapdeal etc or there could specific portals dealing with a particular category of product like Nykaa for beauty. I came across this website called as Place of Origin – http://www.placeoforigin.in.

The website caught my attention, as the name suggests it has a variety of authentic food products from where they belong. Authentic Alphonso mangoes from Ratnagiri or the variety of biscuits at Hyderabad is something which is on the wish list of every foodie. While going through their website I understood that they wanted to connect the great and legendary delicacies of various places to all the consumers across India, which is a brilliant idea. We have so many different food options which are not so easily available at everyone’s disposal.

One of the important categories I explored on the website was of Dry Fruits. Now in India you are aware getting good quality dry fruits is a task in itself. Dry fruits form an essential component of our cuisine and eating habits. We like dry fruits in our food delicacies or we may just end up eating them as it is.

On this website they have many options in the dry fruit category. The traditional ones includes different categories of Almonds (http://www.placeoforigin.in), Walnuts, Pistachio, etc While, I saw newer varieties like sliced orange cranberries or dry pineapple. In case you want flavoured dry fruits they have that variety as well like Saffron Almonds or Western India red Chilly Dryfruit mix. Don’t forget to check out cashew nut (http://www.placeoforigin.in/snacks/dry-fruits), hazelnuts, figs, walnut (http://www.placeoforigin.in/indian-food-brands/ramanlal-vithaldas-co),anjeer, pine nuts, cranberries, and other dryfruits.

So they have managed to get me hooked to their website, hope you also have a pleasant experience.

About Dry Fruits: Dried fruit is fruit from which the majority of the original water content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators. Dried fruit has a long tradition of use dating back to the fourth millennium BC in Mesopotamia, and is prized because of its sweet taste, nutritive value, and long shelf life.
