We live in an age of radical transformation. Notions, ideas and beliefs held in high regard a decade ago are now considered antiquated, regressive and often, offensive. A consequence of living in this fast paced society, we have readily accepted drastic changes in our lifestyle and worldview. In fact, we have not only also implemented it but also helped shape the environment necessary to sustain such change. When I talk about lifestyle, I refer to eating habits.

Research has proved that there are several factors that affect your digestive health. What you are eating is only one such factor, and not the only determinant, as held in popular regard. There are certain other factors, such as the preparation, the duration between cooking and consumption, temperature, hygiene, and the quantity of serving also have a considerable amount of weightage on your health.

Our ever-changing eating habits can be due to experiencing what can be called a time-crunch. We seem to have lesser time on your hands than before. Of course, the time crunch isn’t real, but the phenomenon is caused by longer working hours, higher density of traffic which leads to longer commuting time, and other such factors. We often opt to purchase readily available meals at restaurants or takeaways as a reactionary measure. However, unintentionally or otherwise, very few affordable Indian restaurants are hygienic.

Hence, international fast food brand has come up with an excellent solution for all of us who are pressed for time. Introducing the wholesome new McAloo Tikki Burger – a balanced meal on its own. The McAloo Tikki Burger, of course, has been a mainstay in the McDonald’s India menu since 1998, but has undergone several transformations over the years. It was introduced as a unique vegetarian burger, attuned to the tastes and sensibilities. The latest version of the burger is packed with necessary amount of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Let’s find out more about the ingredients of a McAloo Tikki Burger.

The main component of the burger is the juicy and succulent peas and aloo patty, sprinkled with special Indian herbs and dipped in a coating of fried breadcrumbs. The patty is then embellished by tomato mayo, freshly chopped onions, and tomatoes. Then, the wholesome patty is enveloped in a hot and crispy freshly baked bun, and served up for your delight. The tender patty complements the bun very well.

The McAloo Tikki Burger has been a hit not only with Indians, but also with foreigners. Many have found the flavour to accurately encapsulate an endemic Indian cuisine, in the accessible form of a burger. There are 19gms worth of vegetables that go into each McAloo Tikki Burger, an initiative that has appeased Indian mothers from across the nation. Further, the complete lack of preservatives and added colours makes it all the more enticing. Further, McDonald’s have added dietary fibres to their McAloo Tikki Burger, along with their other offerings. The inclusion of dietary fibres is a measure to keep your digestive system in good functioning health.
