- As we stay under a lockdown, it may be difficult to procure all items required for your weight loss diet

- Here are 4 South Indian food options you can have for breakfast, which will be ready in minutes if you prepare in advance
New Delhi: breakfast is a very important meal of the day. It helps to keep you fuller and gives you the energy to take on the day. However, it is important to ensure that the breakfast you eat is healthy. While the sugary cereals and milk may sound like an easy option, they are not something that you should have every day. Since most of us are working from home, we may fall into the trap of waking up and picking up our laptops to log in immediately and have something unhealthy, packaged or readymade for breakfast. However, there are food options that you can make easily and quickly, which are also healthy.
South Indian food is known to be tasty and healthy and is also easy to make if you prep for them in advance. Here are 4 healthy South Indian dishes you can make for breakfast and stay healthy.
- Idlis – Idlis are known as one of the healthiest breakfasts around the world. Make with a batter of lentils and rice, they are low on calories, filling, and tasty. Idlis are made by steaming, which makes sure your food is oil-free.
- Uttapam – uttapams are made with the same batter as Idlis, but the consistency of the batter is slightly thicker. Add chopped vegetables like onions, capsicum, tomato and green chillies to add more nutrition, flavour, and fibre content to the breakfast.
- Plain dosa – Making plain dosa is extremely easy and when you do so, make sure you use very less oil to keep the fat content low.
- Appams – Appams are similar to dosas, and can be made easily and quickly. They are also low in calories and a perfect breakfast option when had with chutney and sambar.
