We all agree that Indian meals are incomplete with delicious Indian breads - be it roti or parantha. A typical north Indian food platter comprises dal, sabzi, chawal and roti. The roti is a good source of carbohydrates and keeps our body energised. It also loaded with protein and complex carbs (fibre). These are just a few reasons why rotis are considered to be healthy and essential for our diet. What if we told you there are ways to make this food even more healthy and more nutritious? Yes, you read it right! It is possible for the roti to be even healthier, and we are about to reveal this secret to you. You can replace your regular rotis with the healthier alternatives of ragi roti, lauki roti, oats roti and more!
Here Are 5 Nutritious Rotis To Add To Your Diet:
1. Lauki Roti - Our Recommendation
This nutritious roti has the goodness of lauki, making it low caloric and loaded with health benefits of the lauki. The dough of this roti is a combination of lauki and atta, making two lauki rotis equivalent to one roti in calories. Lauki roti is also known as detox roti.
2. Oats Roti
Oats are great for our body and offer many health benefits to our body. If you don't enjoy eating oats as cereal, enjoy it as a roti! Rather than preparing dough of only atta, knead a dough that has an equal portion of oats flour and atta. These rotis are highly nutritious and tasty.
3. Ragi Roti
Ragi is fibre-dense bran that is very healthy and quite nutritious. While there are many ways to add ragi to our diet, ragi roti is by far the most popular ragi recipe. Preparing ragi roti is not different from making regular rotis. The ragi roti is even tastier as it has the added twist of curry leaves, red chilli powder and more spices.
