4. Zero Oil Indian Salad Recipes 

Salads are usually healthy which may become unhealthy if fatty/oil containing dressings are used. Avoiding oily and creamy dressings will make your salad fat free too.

You can make your salads healthier by adding a combination of fruits, vegetables and pulses and sprouts too. Carrot Cucumber and Rajma Salad is one of the examples where Rajma is also used along with healthy mint dressing.

7. Zero Oil Indian Soup Recipes 

Soups are considered healthy but some soups may have hidden fats like cream, milk, butter, fried noodles etc. Try to avoid making soups with these ingredients as they add a lot of fat to them.

Carrot and Onion Soup is a low calorie healthy recipe made with low fat milk which adds to its nutritional value. This Indian onion carrot soup with herbs gives you loads of protein and calcium from milk. This will nourish all the cells and tissues of the body. The soup also adds huge quantities of vitamin A from the carrot.

Soups can also be made using dals and lentils, one such example is Hearty Red Lentil Soup made using low fat milk.

Why we all need a bit of Oil in our daily diet?

When we think of weight, what comes to our mind first is to avoid fats completely. What we don’t realise is that by eliminating oil completely, we not only miss out on our favourite dishes, but also lose the nutrient value that fats and oil have to offer!

You will be surprised to know that fats and oil are actually good sources of energy and aid absorption of fat-soluble vitamins like A,  Vitamin E, D and Vitamin K as well as provide lubrication to the joints.

Veg Raita, Mixed Vegetable RaitaVeg Raita, Mixed Vegetable Raita

Hence removing these drastically from our diet not only makes us fall prey to various vitamin and mineral deficiencies but also invites digestive problems, joint pains etc.

Nutritionists and health experts, thus advise people to consume 3-4 teaspoons of oil per day.

The idea behind bringing out this section is to not to not make each meal oil free, rather, of the 4-6 meals you consume every day, ensure that one or two comprise of zero oil recipes, then which meal to make zero oil is absolutely your choice.
