Healthy chaats you can savour through your weight loss journey
Chaat is one of the most appetizing snacks and can be hard to resist. But do you know it can be perfect for a weight loss diet?
A whole lot of thought goes into creating the perfect diet plan for weight loss. We try to keep tabs on our food intake, taking special care of all the essential fibres and vitamins to our daily diet.
As Indians, we are blessed with some amazing street food and snacks. Chaat is one such snack that is prepared with a host of rustic masalas and chutneys.
Now, though you may be on the path to lose some extra kilograms, it doesn't mean you have to entirely give up on this favourite snack. Can chaat be healthy too? There are ways to make chaat preparations healthy and wholesome. Here are 5 healthy chaats for weight loss diet.
Phaldari Chaat: Fruit chaat with a twist! Mix fresh chunks of kiwis, pineapple, apples and mushroom. Toss the ingredients in spices and grill to perfection. Grilling is preferred over frying as it saves many calories. The chaat can give you plenty of vitamins and minerals, and also keep you full.
Mixed Sprouts and Corn Chaat: Mix together corn, sprouts tomatoes, onions, and some spices. It works as a great snack whenever hunger pangs strike in the middle of the day. Also if you eat this instead of cookies and chocolate bars, you can naturally get your fill of protein.
Rajma Chaat: We all have tried Rajma Chawal, but how about a wholesome and satiating Rajma Chaat? To prepare this, you need a bowl of soaked and boiled rajma. Add chopped veggies and spice of your choice. Garnish it with a dash of lemon juice and a sprinkle of coriander leaves for a rich aroma and flavour.
Aam Chana Chaat: Take fresh raw mangoes that are chopped finely, grated onions, tomato and cucumber and mix them together. This recipe is filled with the goodness of fibre, protein and a range of antioxidants.
Egg Chaat: Eggs work like a charm in so many healthy recipe preparations. This tangy treat made with tamarind chutney, ketchup and lemon will strike a chord with even kids. Try going easy with the amount of tomato ketchup; sometimes the hidden sugar could adversely affect your weight loss plans.
