Eating healthy comes with the ask for a huge personal drive – to make the right choices, to source the right ingredients and to prepare them. Seems like a lot of work, but it’s totally worth it! To offer some relief in foraging some hard to find healthy ingredients in the city, here’s a list of some of my top picks.
MasterChef India Finalist Karishma Tells You 5 Healthy Ingredients You Need In Your Kitchen
What is It?
One of the biggest first-world problems is finding gorgeous, perfectly ripe avocados. While the search may always go on, I’ve found a good substitute, with avocado oil. It’s bursting with flavour and amazing to drizzle on everything, including avocado when you find some!
Available at Uncle’s Shop, Crawford Market or call on +919819620662.
Silken tofu has great texture on its own and can be eaten as is – tossed into your favourite sauce or in a sandwich. I order in fresh silken tofu from Ai Tofu weekly.

Looking for an honest refined flour-free bread? Try Danz! It’s so healthy, you’ll feel it in every bite.
Available on Scootsy!
One of the most comforting things is a giant bowl of warm porridge. The best quality jumbo oats available are from Express Foods.
Available on Scootsy.
Vegans, take note! Nutritional yeast is available in the city on Urban Platter. I love it for it’s ‘cheesy’ flavour, high protein content and versatility.
