Vegetable Biryani, Mint & Cucumber Yoghurt

Vegetables prevent unwanted signs of aging and keep skin young because of phytonutrients, vitamin C and high water content. Many vegetables are 85% to 95% water, which helps hydrate the skin and reduce wrinkles. And phytonutrients, found in all vegetables, can guard against premature aging by preventing cell damage from stress, the sun, pollution and other environmental toxins.
