Indian meals are known to be a plate full of balanced nutrition essential for your body and health. Our everyday meals consist of dal, rice, a vegetable and roti, which come together to give our bodies the right quantity of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and fats. But eating the same kind of food, despite its innumerable health benefits can get a tad boring and monotonous to eat. Nutritionist Nmami Agarwal has the perfect solution to brighten your regular meals with a delicious, simple, and healthy twist. And the best part? Kids, who usually fuss over their meals, will love it too and it is the perfect way to get them to unknowingly eat their vegetables.
Sharing her post on Instagram Reels, Nmami adds some healthy beetroot to her roti dough and mixes it. In the caption, she explains the benefits of adding vegetables to roti dough.
“Adding vegetables while making the dough will increase the fibre content and is a smart way to make kids eat veggies. You can cut it into different shapes to make it look more attractive. Here, I have added oats and almond flour to add fibre, carbohydrate and protein at the same time. Instead of beetroot, you can also use spinach to add green colour,” she stated.
