    Re: Less oil/Oil free/Low Calories Break fast items.

    Dear Krishnamma,
    You've started a superb thread. Many dishes you've mentioned are not just healthy and light, but very easy to make and that is the best part of it. I had recently bought oats and was wondering what to do with it other than making upma (I don't like the oats-milk combination), and you've given me the answer. I'll try your oats recipes and let you know.
    Thanks

    Dear Krishnamma,

    Tried Oats with Buttermilk and oats with carrot. Tasted good, was easy to make and can be had either as breakfast, or in the early evening. Was really filling too.

    Well Oats upma recipe is as follows:

    Ingredients
    Oats - 1 cup
    Water - 2 1/2 cups
    Salt - as per requirement
    To temper:
    Oil - 2 tsp
    Mustard , Hing, Urad Dal, Chana Dal, Green chillies, Curry leaves, Ginger

    Method:

    Roast oats without oil for a couple of minutes.
    In a Kadhai, add 2 teaspoonful of oil and temper Mustard, asafoetida (hing), urad dal, chana dal, curry leaves, green chilli, ginger. Now add water, salt and once water boils, slowly add the oats and keep stirring till completely cooked .

    Optional:
    1.You can roast some cashews in ghee (if you're not all that calorie conscious) and add it as as final garnish.
    2. Once the tempering is done, you can add chopped onions, saute them and then add the water and oats and blend.
    3. You can also add vegetables of your choice to make it tastier.

    Dear Samayal,

    I too fell like that. First of all what are you taking for lunch. Have heavy lunch. (with in the calorie of your calculation) That is, you have to fix what you are going to take for break fast, mid day snack, lunch,evening snack and dinner. So according to that if you feel hungry during 2 to 5 take more quantity of lunch which includes cooked veg. and salads.

    For example, for morning you are having 200 ml Orange juice and one orange or apple. For mid day snack have 2 - 3 salt biscuts( calculate the calories from the cover and arrive for each bis. for 'Time Pass' salt biscut, it is 6 - 7 calories each. Like that you calculate for marie biscut or which you are going to take.) with one cup of coffee.

    It is your wish to have it with or without sugar according your plan. Then for lunch one or 2 chappati or 1 cup rice and have varitey of vegetables. Like have one cooked veg. one salad, one raitha, one cup greens/keerai and a cup of butter milk.

    So the calorie will not go up but if you have these type of lunch at 1 or 1.30pm, you will not feel hungry till evening 4 or 5.

    I am going to give some model diet programme in a couple of days which will be use ful to you.

    I think this is enough for you now, to over come your problem?:2thumbsup:
