Tarla Dalal    The calories per serving is 145. What you need to look at is what the recipe is made off. Are the ingredients healthy in the recipe. We have updated the health info for you. My one suggestion is to use peanut oil in cooking as that is higher in MUFA and not use any vegetable oil. Serving size is an estimation based on what an individual will eat. We have analysed over 3,000 recipes so your welcome to go to any recipe and ask questions like this.
