Our Indian snacks, especially the savoury ones, have a knack of making one overeat, only to feel guilty later. Not if you make them the smart way, at home. Oats and Moong Dal Dahi Vada is one such brilliant snack – a non-fried version of dahi vadas, which can be enjoyed without any guilt! Fibre from the oats and calcium from curds makes this a nourishing yet low-fat treat. Being so flavourful by itself, it does not even require calorie-laden meetha chutney for serving.
