Eating these healthy dishes.
You can continue to eat these healthy steamed dishes while following your weight loss diet.
Many of us view a weight loss diet as bland, tasteless, and predominantly cooked. These concerns stem from myths that suggest that you rely entirely on raw vegetables if you want to lose weight. Or that you have to give up something tasty, especially your favorite foods such as noodles and pizza.
While it's recommended that you regulate your intake of fattening or carbohydrate-rich foods, you don't have to give up everything you love completely. With the right choices and some dietary changes, you can even continue eating lots of Indian snacks and dishes while successfully completing your weight loss journey.
Steamed dishes like dhokla and idli are some of the first names that come to mind when we aim for a guilt-free indulgence. In this four part, we add 4 other steamed dishes from India, which are healthy and delicious and might fit into your weight loss diet.
Part 3: Siddu.
Siddu is a classic Himachali steamed bun that traditionally contains maida, yeast, ghee and salt for preparing the bread dough; however, you can replace the maida with atta to make it a bit healthier. Siddu is filled with various sweet or savory fillings and can be enjoyed for breakfast or as an evening snack.
This hot and steaming comforting bun is best paired with a cup of masala tea.
