Five healthy foods to feast on this Navratri!

Festivity is in the air as one of the most popular Hindu festivals Navratri is here! The festival is observed for nine nights and 10 days with much fanfare during which Goddess Durga’s nine forms are worshipped. If you are going to be fasting this Navratri and looking for healthy food options, we have got you covered. All these delicacies will satiate your taste buds and you would not be putting on those extra pounds either!

Makhane Ki Kheer: If you have got a sweet tooth, but are scared of putting on those extra kilos then Makhane Ki Kheer is a perfect option for you. Boil the makhanas for 15-20 minutes in milk, add jaggery and dry fruits and you are good to go! 

Aloo Chaat:  Don’t panic by reading aloo in the name. You can continue with your weight loss plan without giving up on potatoes! All you need to do is to not fry them. Use an air fryer instead and bake them. Add the spices and lemon juice and your delicious aloo chaat will be ready! 

Tomato soup: Soups are great! They satiate your hunger pangs and are packed with nutrition. Prepare tomato soup, add some roasted makhanas into it and enjoy the perfect navratri snack!  

Fruit Yogurt: Another great healthy option for those who constantly crave for something sweet! You can prepare it at home by mixing fruits and yogurt, just make sure you add jaggery or honey to make it sweet instead of your regular white sugar. 

Sabudana Khichdi: Sabudana khichdi is wholesome as well as healthy and can make for a balanced meal. It is rich in carbohydrates, which are essential for keeping your energy levels high. You can also try sabudana kheer too which is an equally healthy option.
