Many people out there feel that healthy food is boring and tasteless, and it contains everything that they never enjoyed eating in the first place. However, fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala is here to bust those myths. In an Instagram post, she shared her own guilt-free snack recipe that you can munch away without worrying about the calories. Yasmin dished out a healthy treat of sprouts bhel for an evening snack. And it's all the more fun because it requires no cooking and is super quick to rustle up.
For the dish, Yasmin used moong sprouts, boiled and sliced sweet potato, finely chopped onions, tomatoes, coriander, and spoonfuls of tamarind and mint chutneys.
