Loaded with beans, veggies and fruits, and topped with a mix of lip-smacking chutneys, chaats are unbelievably delicious.
And they're not just about great taste- when prepared the right way, these delightful snacks can prove to be pretty healthy.
Filled with fiber and protein, they can help keep you full, thereby kicking away unnecessary/unhealthy snacking.
Here are five healthy chaat recipes you should try.
Mixed sprouts and corn chaat
Sprouts are prepared from a variety of dals/pulses, that are naturally filled with lots of protein.
To prepare this filling and healthy chaat, mix together sprouts, corn, tomatoes, onions, and some spices.
It works as a great mid-meal snack. So, the next time you start craving for those cookies or pack of chips, head to the kitchen, and prepare this healthy snack.
Loaded with essential vitamins, iron, and proteins, eggs are a storehouse of nutrition. So, adding them in any dish is a wonderful step.
To prepare healthy and delicious egg chaat, take a couple of boiled eggs, and add a mix of tomato ketchup, tamarind chutney and lemon juice.
However, go slow on that tomato ketchup pack, as it is loaded with hidden sugars.
Sweet potato chaat
Containing crucial vitamins and fiber, sweet potatoes are packed with nutritional goodness and are amazingly filling.
To prepare this chaat, boil a couple of sweet potatoes, and cut them into small cubes.
Then, add a good amount of fruits of your liking. Finally, top it with a mix of your favorite chutneys.
You may also roast the sweet potato.
Beans chaat and Fruit chaat
Beans chaat: Mix boiled kidney beans, chickpeas, and green beans along with a generous amount of potatoes, tomatoes and cucumbers. Top it all with chaat masala and lemon juice.
Fruit chaat: Mix together fresh chunks of apples, pineapples, kiwis and literally any fruit that you have a taste for. This chaat will give you plenty of vitamins and minerals, and keep you full.
