Enjoy the Navratris with these nutritionist-approved recipes. These simple and easy recipes are loaded with flavours, as well as nutrition.

  1. FRUIT CHAAT
Chaat is a popular street food in north India, mainly made with tuber-roots like potatoes or sweet potatoes, which are fried. Here, we make it healthier by swapping vegetables for fruits. Also, there is no deep frying involved.

4. SAMA KI IDLI

Sama or Vari rice is a millet grain used during fasting. Since they are made from millet and tapioca starch, they are not like your regular soft and fluffy idlis. Allowing the batter to ferment overnight and adding little baking soda helps in making the idlis rise.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup barnyard millet (sama)
  • ½ cup tapioca pearls (sabudana)
  • 2 pinches of baking soda
  • rock salt, as required
Method:
  • Mix sama and sabudana in a bowl and rinse well. Soak for 3 hours and then drain the water off and grind in a wet grinder
  • Add more water, if required, to the batter. Consistency will be a bit granular.
  • Allow the batter to ferment for 9-10 hours or overnight.
  • Add rock salt and baking soda to the batter and mix well before pouring to greased idli moulds.
  • Place in a steamer or electric cooker and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with coconut chutney (without onions and garlic).
