While most of us have realised the importance of building our immunity, many of us still do not realise that building immunity is not only about incorporating a few spices and foods in one’s diet; it is in fact about making wholesome, 360-degree changes to one’s lifestyle and habits.

But while making those changes, you can always add a few tweaks to your regular fare which will not only break the monotony but will also help enhance the immunityboosting process. So how about beginning the week with one such recipe — a spicy chutney full of vitamin C?

Pilates trainer Radhika Karle shared this easy recipe of Tomato and Bell Pepper chutney.
