    Hi to all,

    I am opening new thread regarding less oil/oil less i.e. oil free/ low calorie break fast items.

    Please as usual give me your support and suggestions on this. And also give me your valuable feed backs.

    Thank you in advance.

    We have to remember one thing while we start ‘weight reduction’.

    NO FEASTING AND NO FASTING

    must be our slogan.


    1. One thing that must be remembered is that any high calorie dish can be converted into a low calorie one.

    2. When making dal for instance, instead of frying the onions, tomatoes, ginger and garlic, add them to the dal when you boil it.

    3. Then for the seasoning you can use very little oil, whether it is jeera or rai.

    4. Instead of frying, roast foods.

    5. Use a microwave whenever possible.

    6. Avoid using coconut as far as possible.

    7. Use skimmed milk and fat free yogurt.

    8. Avoid malai, cream and too many nuts.

    Oats



    Oats is a dietary fiber rich food capable of increasing the body’s metabolism.

    2 - 3 spoons of oats with a little bit of turmeric, salt, coriander powder, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder is mixed with a cup of milk and heated for two minutes.

    You can add fresh fruits to the mixture.

    You can make the spices and use as readymade powder to put one or two pinches in the oats.
