  • Zucchini is good for Vata & Pitta but aggravates Kapha.
  • Cooked carrot is Tridoshic.
  • Millets pacify Kapha but aggravates Vata and Pitta.
  • Amaranth is Tridoshic(in moderation for Vata and Kapha)
  • Toasted Black Chickpeas pacifies Pitta and Kapha but slightly aggravates Vata. Still it is better than Garbanzo Beans.
