Officials of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) on Thursday seized nearly two tonnes of khesari dal which was stocked in a house at Orattukuppai, near Chettipalayam. Known as poor man’s dal, the large stock of pulse was seized by FSSAI.
With eco-friendly fashion becoming the buzzword globally, Baggit hosted an event to celebrate responsible fashion. At the do, guests stitched their own eco-friendly cloth bags, which also had a touch of desi spirit, with Sapna Ahuja and Suchitra Pillai.
Khesari Dal was once used as cattle feed, but its side-effects were found to be so dangerous that the practice was stopped. It was banned in 1961 as it contains di-amino-pro-pionic acid which can lead to paralysis of the lower body and cause numbness in.
