Healthy Baked Indian Snacks

Baked snacks are often considered as time consuming and thus sidestepped by many of us. But believe it or not, they are a far healthier option to snack to on when compared to deep fried and junk foods. One advantage about baked snacks is that you can make when you have time on hand and store it for time when hunger strikes you. You will always have them ready when you want eat healthy.

This section will surely make you overcome the notion that Baked isn’t tasty!! Name it and you can make it… from puris to sev and samosa to kachori, all can be baked to perfection. Peep into this section for these recipe secrets. Moreover, all the recipes of this Healthy Baked Snacks section do not make use of any refined ingredients like maida or sugar. The aim of creating recipes for this section is to avoid those excess calories from fat used for deep-frying. Such deep-fried foods, in reality, increases the inflammation in the body and can be causative factor for many chronic diseases like heart diseases.

Next time you want to enjoy this baked snack keep the following pointers in mind…

  • Use a variety of flours like jowar flour, nachni flour, oats flour etc.
  • Perk up the flavour with the right amount of choice of spices and masalas.
  • Try and add a leafy vegetable if possible to make up for some fiber requirement.
  • Don’t roll the puris very thick as they might not bake uniformly then.
  • Use them to make a variety of other snacks like chaats.

You can also try a South Indian style papdi recipe – Baked Thattai. We have shared its baked version too!

Healthy Baked Samosa and Kachori

What’s heathy in Baked Samosa and Baked Kachori? There are no potatoes, but instead they are loaded with sprouts. These mini samosa give only 28 calories. Wow no other snack can beat this if you think. Of course, the baking time is around half hour, but it’s truly worth trying at least once in your kitchen. All you need to remember is to have within 10 minutes of baking, else they may turn dry.

Similarly kachoris can be baked too. We have shared the healthier version of famous Bengali snack Matarsutir Kochuri. Made with whole wheat flour dough, stuffed with fiber rich green peas and brushed with only 1 teaspoon of oil, these Healthy Matarsutir Kachouri, are baked at 200°C to offer a pleasing snack for you.

Healthy Baked Breads

The bread recipes shared in this section are devoid of refined flour (maida) and it are not loaded with fat as well. Moreover the bread is made more nutritious by the addition of some healthy seeds. This is an added benefit for sure. Learn the art of making Multigrain Bread in your own kitchen. Made with whole wheat flour and topped with flax seeds, whole bajra and whole ragi, it’s a real fiber rich treat for your taste buds. Watch step-by-step video on How to Make Multigrain Bread.

Next if you ask ‘Iis Multigrain Bread really healthy?’ Well, the answer is ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ both. The positive trait is that has no maida as mentioned earlier. But the negative aspect of it is that eventually it does lend carbs. So we recommend this Healthy Multigrain bread only as a healthier option to maida based bread. Besides the quantity has to be restricted as well. Multigrain doesn’t give you the liberty to help yourself with the quantity that pleases you. 1 slice of this bread yields 85 calories, 2.7 g protein, 2.8 g fiber and only 0.9 g of fat.  Spread Almond Butter or Peanut Butter on it and enjoy a true healthy treat.
