As far as healthy food is concerned, baked food comes first in this category because baked food items are low in fat. How they are low fat? Just think about the baking environment and you can easily understand why it has low fat content. Baking is done in area which is fully covered and no heat is passed outside until you open its door. So this stored heat helps in releasing natural energy/fat from the food (like meat) and in this way very little amount of oiling is done in the start which is just for triggering the process of baking.
Baked foods are full of tastes as it cooks more within its own oil, so its very juicy and rich in flavor if cooked with accurate time, temperature and measured ingredients, otherwise baked item will become too dry, hard and will not taste good.
Baked food items become more healthy and tasty when baking is done underground. For example baking a mutton leg or chicken. In this process a hole is made around the item which is to be baked and then red hot pieces of coal are placed in it and then the meal is covered for particular time. In this way all the aroma and flavor remains well absorbed and preserved. Keep in mind that any food will remain tasty unless its flavor is not removed.
Now by learning these benefits of baked food, I usually prefer to use it rather than cooking by deep frying and making oily food on stove. Although, we can’t ignore the importance of stove cooking but where ever possible it is better to bake your food.
