Diwali is just a week away and we’re sure you have already begun preparing sweets and other delicacies. During the festive season, most people go off their diets and gorge on laddoos, jalebis, and barfis. All of these are high in calories and if you don't limit the quantity you eat, you’ll put on a few kilos in a matter of days. This doesn't mean you don’t indulge in lip-smacking food this Diwali. Here are a few dishes that won’t make you feel guilty after eating them. Now, go grocery shopping and make them today.
Swap the regular milk with the low-fat one to bring down the calories drastically. Also, using corn instead of rice is a healthier option.
Cashew nut is a calorie-dense food item, and adding ghee and sugar to it makes it extremely unhealthy. If you love barfis, make them with almonds.
Jowar is not only an excellent source of protein but is also packed with iron, calcium, and potassium. So, when making laddoos this Diwali, use jowar as the main ingredient.
If you go easy on the ghee you add to this dish, poha chivda is one of the tastiest and easy-to-make Diwali snacks.
You may wonder what are chaklis if they are not deep-fried. But the baked version tastes as good and you can eat as many as you want.
