List of healthy Indian snacks for weight loss: Breakfast and evening snacks
Moonglet chilla is one of the best Indian healthy snacks. The recipe is made of Split green gram (Moong) and has a lot of veggies which makes it high in protein and fiber.
It is also called veg omelet because it tastes like an omelet but it is a 100% vegetarian recipe. If you are on a weight loss diet, you must add this recipe to your diet plan.
Poha is a widely prepared recipe in India and is a very popular food particularly in Maharastra and Madhya Pradesh.
To make it weight loss friendly, I have added a lot of veggies to it. Poha is also a great choice among fitness freaks and people love adding it to their diet plan.
Oats in itself is very healthy and again a popular choice for people who are on their weight loss journey.
You can prepare a lot of different recipes with oats, like oats khichdi, oats pudding, oats salad, etc.
But the recipe I am going to share is called oats poha which is a tasty and healthy Indian snack at the same time. You can find the recipe link below.
Moong dal chilla is made of moong and in stuffing, I have used paneer. As we know, moong and paneer are protein-rich which makes this recipe a perfect fit as a healthy Indian snack.
Black gram or Kala chana is known for its high protein content. The chana chaat recipe, therefore, is a protein-rich healthy Indian snack for weight loss and muscle gain.
The tangy taste of the recipe makes it yummy to eat and have fun with your diet journey.
Now, let’s get started with a healthy homemade noodles/pasta snacks recipe for weight loss.
You might be wondering how come noodles or pasta could be weight loss friendly.
Let me tell you, the noodles in the recipe is made of semolina (Suji/Rawa) and not refined wheat flour (maida).
Actually, it is neither noodles nor pasta but a mix of both. And on top of that, you do not need to purchase noodles/pasta from outside. You can prepare it at your home.
