What do you think when you think of honey? Sweet. Syrupy. Desserts. Drinks. Maybe skincare too. But what if we told you that we have “savoury” on our minds? Honey is a powerhouse of antioxidants and phytonutrients along with having antibacterial and antifungal properties. While we love a dash of honey in our green tea, why not try adding it to savoury dishes too? Apart from lending your dishes a unique taste, honey will elevate the health factor of the platter in one go. Here are seven savoury recipes where you can include honey. Trust us, you won’t complain about the taste at all.
1) Honey Chilli Potato
Let’s start it real easy! Douse potato wedges in cornflour, salt and chilli powder. Fry them. Saute spring onions, ginger, garlic, sesame seeds in tomato sauce, vinegar and honey. Mix the wedges with it. Serve it hot and crunchy.
