My name is Richa Bhatnagar and I am a dietician by profession. I have my own practice in India. I consult all those eager to get healthy and fit. The Chinese call it Zen, the soul, where you belong. I would say for me it's helping others to get healthy. Dedication and knowledge are the two tools I go by. I hope my blog clears out doubts, raises questions, and gives out helpful information.

    Thank you soo much for this valuable information….I don’t know why I didn’t find it on the net in the past years but I have always been in confusion when searching for calories in Indian sweets….most of the times they were either under rated or over rated………but this calorie estimation seems reasonable….especially for rava halwa (every site said it contains 400-500 cals, but I was sure that it cudn’t be so high)!

    Thanks again!
