Til seeds are known to be naturally warming and help us boost our immunity to brave against the cold winters. The same goes for jaggery; it is known for its warming properties and should be included in our winter diet. Dietician Sunita Chowdhary points out that, "Jaggery is beneficial to have in winter as it helps to dilate blood vessels and produces warmth in the body. Jaggery is made from sugar cane or from date palm and the heat is produced by the high calorie content in it."
