With the onset of Navratri, starts the ritual of heavy fasting. The biggest festival for India, Diwali is seeping it's way through these days and we have high spirits for the same. In all this, it's hard to stay away from our favourite delicacies. It's time to ditch the extra calories and switch to the healthier options during your fasting period.
Here are 5 healthy options you can get your hands on :
No main course, go the extra mile and add zing to your meal. Savour pineapple yogurt which is 100% gluten free, to feel extra satiated, add nuts and raisins.
One ingredient, several dishes, Sabudana (Tapioca) is a favourite during fasting, use it to make Vadas, Kheer, Khichdi and you could also go expermineting with it.
Alternately known as Buckwheat flour, Kuttu can not only help in fighting hunger pangs during fasting but it also lowers cholesterol and supports weight loss. Secondly, Dosa is our favourite anyway, a healthy dosa during fasting, great idea huh?
Desserts go directly to the heart, but a healthy dessert is one no one can miss. Fox Nuts, commonly known as Makhanas aid in weight loss and make up for a great snack. Kheer made with Makhana is just as good, savour the healthy scrumptious dessert.
Arbi's first impression on us isn't as great, right? But we are here changing your last impression on it. Arbi Kofta with mint dip can be your perfect snack if you're bored with potatoes and tapioca.
