Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety - IANS

It’s pour­ing and all you crave for is fried snacks like pako­das and samosas, but con­sum­ing all that isn’t healthy. Look for healthy sub­sti­tutes in­stead, says an ex­pert.

Chef Vi­jayant Rawat shares a list of a few healthy snacks you can munch on in mon­soon: n Chakli: Chakli, a fried south In­dian snack pre­pared from rice flour, is one of the favourites of many as it goes well with a steam­ing cup of tea. Sub­sti­tute: Sprout salad! To sat­isfy your taste buds, you can add cu­cum­ber, chopped onion and lime juice.

Samosas: Whether it’s

■ rain­ing or not, samosa is loved by many, thanks to the de­li­cious

stuff­ing and its aroma. Sub­sti­tute: In­stead of fry­ing, you can bake the samosa. Very less oil is used in the process. In the same way, you can try aloo chat and tikki.

Pako­das: Be it onion, potato to

■ or spinach, pako­das are ad­dic­tive. Es­pe­cially in the rainy sea­son. They are also per­fect to go with tea. Sub­sti­tute: By re­tain­ing the veg­eta­bles, you can make sand­wiches with brown bread.

Chole Bha­ture: Chole bha­ture have man­aged to get some space in the heart of ev­ery In­dian. Sub­sti­tute: Re­place the oily food item with Pav Bhaji, made from finely chopped veg­eta­bles. Cook in less oil to make it healthy. —
