Fragrance of Monsoon comes with a lot of food temptations. Masala chai and pakodas are all time favorite option for everyone. But have you ever tried some healthy alternative to this?
Here All About Diet have listed 5 healthy snacks options you can pick this monsoon guilt free.
Corn is available in plenty during monsoons. If you are not eating them off the cob, the next best thing you can do with them is to make a delicious corn bhel. Add chopped onions, tomatoes, boiled sprouts, dash of lemon and a sprinkle of fresh coriander leaves for a healthy monsoon snack and serve with spicy mint coriander and green chilli chutney. To make a variation of your healthy snacks use sprouts/ rajma instead of corn.
