South Indian food is known to be tasty and healthy and is also easy to make if you prepare for them in advance. Here are some healthy South Indian dishes you can make for breakfast and stay healthy.
Idly – Idlis are known as one of the healthiest breakfasts around the world. Make with a batter of lentils and rice and they are low on calories, filling, and tasty. Idlis are made by steaming, which makes your food is oil-free.
Dosa – Making plain dosa is extremely easy and when you do so, make sure you have to use very less oil to keep the fat content low.
Uttapam – Uttapams are made with the same batter as Idlis but the consistency of the batter is thicker. We can add some chopped vegetables like onions, capsicum, tomato to add more nutrition, flavor, and fiber content to the breakfast.
Appam – Appams are similar to dosas, and can be made it easily and quickly. They are also low in calories and a perfect breakfast option when we had with chutney and sambar.
