    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    Did you know that the water content of lettuce is as high as 96%! Moreover, this is the vegetable that's lowest in calories! When shopping for lettuce, always buy dark coloured leaves since these are more nutritious, higher in iron and beta carotene than the light green ones. The best way to store unwashed lettuce in your kitchen is in the vegetable crisper, loosely packed in a plastic bag or in a covered container in the refrigerator. Use lettuce within 3 days from the day you buy it. This is the best thing that I got to learn today - 2 leaves of lettuce have just 1 single calorie!!!!!! I hope you enjoy this recipe and munch on some lettuce instead of biscuits the next time hunger pangs take their toll on you!;-) This is Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe from the Young Times magazine.
