Eat well is the mantra in India to be healthy and eating healthy is important. If you’ve decided to eat healthy but don’t really like eating bland or sweet oats, cornflakes and other food recommended by dieticians then here is a list of top Indian food which is delicious and healthy.

Idli

First up is the unpretentious Idli from the south. Idlis are a great source of carbohydrates and proteins. The fermentation process increases the bioavailability of proteins and enhances the vitamin B content of the food.  As it is steamed, fat content is low and it is easily digestible. Use of dal and rice in idli is a good combination as the amino acids in them complement each other.

Sattu 

A staple of the north sattu was originally made of roasted gram flour but has now evolved to include other nutritious flours like barley, wheat etc. It is prepared in several ways including parathas, laddoos, litti chokhas and more variations.

Dhokla

The staple Gujarati snack, dhoklas, is made with gram flour and subsequently steamed. The fermentation of the flour enhances its nutritive value. Dhokla has a low glycemic index (it releases glucose at a more sustained rate) which makes it good for diabetics. 

Bajra

Bajra also knowns as pearl millet is very popular in Rajasthan, this humble food has been eaten in India since the pre-historic times. It is mostly consumed in the form of rotis or khichdis, especially in the winters.

Daliya 

Dalia is a popular breakfast cereal in North India and is made with whole wheat grits or broken wheat. It can be made either as a sweet dalia kheer or as savoury dalia. Being a complex carbohydrate, the rate at which it gets digested it slow thus releasing glucose on a slow and sustained rate. This makes it an ideal food for diabetics, people wanting to lose weight or those who have high cholesterol levels.

Sprouts

Though not a traditional Indian favourite the health benefits of sprouts are immense. Sprouts have gone through a germination process during which all its nutrients are broken down into their simplest forms making them ‘predigested’ and easily absorbable by the body.  Sprouts are a rich source of vitamins, proteins, minerals and fibre.
