3. Green, blue and purple food is more cooling then those which are red, orange and yellow. So when you are making salad add green apple instead of red and green capsicum instead of yellow.
4. Try to eat food which is fresh and raw. You can opt for steaming or blanching vegetables .Steaming raises less body heat when compared to frying.
5. There are many Indian herbs which cools us down such as dhaniya (coriander powder) and white pepper.
