    Here are a few examples at certain restaurants that you do to make your meal options healthy.

    Udupi Restaurant

    • Have idlis with sambar other than the chutneys.
    • Do not top it up with the vada. Keep the meal simple.
    • Ask for the dosas or utappams with less oil or to be made without oil.
    • Do not indulge in the yummy pooris.
    • Khara bath can be a good option unless they are very oily.
    Chinese restaurants
    • Start your meal with a clear soup; do not indulge in creamy soups.
    • Reduce the portion size of the starters that you consume.
    • Ask for the steamed ones instead of the fried ones
    • Eat steamed rice, noodles instead of fried rice, noodles.
    • Request the chef or when you place an order to cook your food with minimum oil.
    • Check on the method of preparation of the food, check if he vegetables or meat is fried in oil before adding it into the gravy. So that you can have smaller portions of it as your share if not avoid it.
    Mughlai Restaurants
    • Grilled kebabs are a healthier option than fried kebabs.
    • Opt for the tandoor rotis instead of the paratas with excess oil/butter.
    • Select simple gravies instead of the makani (butter) gravies.
    Italian/Mexican
    • Opt for the tomato based gravies and dishes instead of the cream based gravies.
    Fast food joints
    • While ordering a pav bhaji ask for toasted pav instead or the roasted butter pav
    • Sandwiches are always a better option than the Vada pav.

    Good ideas,Godschild.

    Shall I add a few of mine too?

    Skip the icecream/ dessert- go for a fruit salad or fresh mocktail.

    Skip fried starters-go for roasted pappads.

    Stick to stir fried veggies/avoid white cashew gravy/butter laden red gravies.

    Go for Green and red chutnies instead ofcoconut chutney.

    If you wish to go ahead with a cake-avoid the icing!

    Hi

    Fantastic thread will be of great use to me next time I hop into any restaurant.

    But frankly speaking I dont look much into diet and all in a restaurant .

    Its more of a party time then.

    But a great thread and a very informative one too

    Regards

    GodsChild,

    Very useful tips.

    As shakambari said, cocunut chutney should not be added at all. Even groundnut chutney should be avoided instead mint/corriander/tomato/onion chutney can be added to food.
