Vijayant Rawat, Executive chef of Mosaic Hotel, Noida, shares a list of a few healthy snacks you can munch on in monsoon:
  • Chakli: A fried South Indian snack prepared from rice flour goes well with a steaming cup of tea.
  • Substitute: Sprout salad! To satisfy your taste buds, you can add chopped onion, cucumber and limejuice.

  • Samosa: Stuffed potato or vegetables coated with all purpose flour and deep-fried. It is a favourite of many, thanks to the delicious stuffing and its aroma.
  • Substitute: Baking the samosa is a better option, as very less oil is used in the process.
  • Pakodas: Be it onion, potato or spinach, pakodas made with besan flour are addictive especially in the rainy season.
  • Substitute: Retain the vegetables, and 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.
