We are often torn between health and taste. If you thought that ignoring our cravings and cutting down on our meals is a sure-shot way to lose weight, you may be wrong. Weight loss comes with good health, and good health comes with optimum nutrition. Ask any health expert and they will advise you to get your daily fix of all the nutrients, including carbohydrates (of course, in moderation). One should always be happy to eat their food. If you love tikki, go have it! But wait, only after you make it healthier.
We found a recipe that lets us make delicious bread and dal tikki, which is healthy as well as delicious. The tikki is made of moong dal instead of aloo; this gives us a good amount of protein. Veggies like bell pepper and carrots give us various essential vitamins and minerals. And brown bread made with whole wheat flour adds in good carbs and fibre. So, you get a wholesome meal that is gratifying to the core. The recipe video of moong dal bread tikki was shared by nutritionist Natasha Mohan on her Instagram page 'dt.natashamohan' and we are looking forward to trying it out.
We have laid down the step-by-step recipe for a quick run-through.
