Let’s Play Safe Holi, Eat Healthy & Live Better
While Holi is all about colors, but this year due to the spread of Coronavirus we should take some extra precautions and avoid crowded places, be selective on the quality of colours used and maintain the hygiene. The celebrations this year should be more on the making and sharing delicious Holi snacks and sweets in a healthier way to add to the fun and frolic of the festival.
So, for this Holi party, ensure that your guests are treated with delicious and healthy food. Check out the below snack options that you can give a healthy twist or prepare them with similar sugar and oil-free substitutes.
Holi snacks options with healthy twist:
Baked gujia: This holi, say no to the deep-fried sugar syrup coated gujia’s and prepare them in a healthy way. Instead of frying in oil or ghee, bake them in Glen OTG 5030 or air fry in the Glen Air Fryer 3044. Same taste, minus the guilt of calories. You can even replace the maida with semolina and mawa for coconut and dry fruits.
Roasted nuts: The easiest and quickest way to spice up the holi party is with some roasted nuts served as snacks. Rather going conventional way, opt for toasting/ roasting the nuts like cashews, peanuts, almonds and makhana in Glen rapid fryer 3043. The taste will be enhanced without any additional oil.
Low cal thandai: Holi is incomplete without thandai, but remember, it is full of calories. So, replace the full-fat milk with skimmed or toned one, add some almonds sans bhang and blend it smooth in Glen 4047 I Blender, serve it chilled.
Dhokla: The light and fluffy snack is loved by all and is a healthy alternative to fried snacks. Prepare the dhokla batter (check recipe here), pour it in a tin and place in Glen 3052 steam cooker and set the temperature for steaming. Once ready, prepare and pour tempering and serve with tangy green chutney.
Haryali paneer tikka: As it is the festival of colors, then why not try the colorful recipe. Try this green colored haryali paneer tikka (recipe here) in Glen 5014 Electric Tandoor or use the contact Grill 3037. It is a healthy snack that will be definitely liked by every guest.
These were the healthy and quick snacks that you can try at home for the Holi party. If you got any more options, drop your suggestions in comments.
Have a Happy & Safe Holi!
