Recently nutrition and fitness coach @dee_gautham shared a reel on how to eat healthy at Indian restaurants. In the reel, the nutrition coach first says to opt for grilled tandoori chicken or paneer tikka as these options are much lighter than the heavy and creamy gravies. Secondly, she says that it's good to choose chana masala as it is loaded with fibre and nutrients and is less heavy in comparison with a creamy dal makhani.
When ordering bread, make sure that you don't get any butter or ghee on top of it. Lastly, she says that if you are eating at a buffet or a wedding, then it's best not to load your plate with desserts. Instead, have only one dessert and enjoy that. Take a look at the video here:
