Low Carb Indian Dinner Recipes

Dinner is the last meal of the day. Though it’s one of the main meals of the day, it should definitely comprise of less calories and carbs than lunch. This is because when you have lunch, through the day there is enough time for digestion process to get accomplished completely. For the same reason, it is advised to have dinner at least 2 hours before going to bed. This gives your body to digest the food.

Low carb Indian Stir-fries for dinner

Stir-fries being made with only veggies are quite satiating because of the fiber they contain. They lend in very few calories and carbs but top up on antioxidants instead. These help to reduce inflammation in the body too. Broccoli, Spinach and Zucchini Stir-fry and Brussel Sprouts and Spring Onion Stir-fry are options which are sure to satisfy your palate and taste buds.

Mushrooms are still another healthy option, which everyone on low carb diet must turn to. Veg Stir-fried Mushrooms provide less than 5 g of carb…. Just perfect for a healthy dinner. They are very easy to make and just green chillies and garlic are enough to perk up the flavour. 

Low carb grilled veggies for dinner

Veggies are the true friend of weight watchers. Steam, bake, grill or sauté, they are a bowl of health. Grilling veggies is an easier way of cooking them – not too many ingredients nor too many pots required. All you need is minimal amount of oil and herbs to pep up their taste. Prefer using olive oil in restricted quantity as it possess polyphenols – a type of antioxidant which protects body cells and maintains heart health as well.

Grilled Pumpkin, Grilled Baingan in Olive Oil and Sea Salt and Grilled Mushrooms are some flavourful ideas that we have presented in this category. Do give them a try!

High Protein Low Carb Indian Meals for Dinner

A high protein diet boosts metabolism and aids in weight loss. On the other hand, low carb diet helps to utilize the fat stores of the body. Thus this combo works perfect for weight watchers. Two interesting options that we have included in this category are Almond Bhakri and Dry Egg Masala. 

Almond Bhakri is a wholesome substitute to Indian breads which are usually filled with carbs. Try making it and the aroma of this bhakri being cooked is good enough to tempt you. All you have to do is soak, peel and blend almonds and knead into a dough with little ghee and salt. Finally pat it with fingers on a rolling board and cook it on a tava. 3.2 g of carbs is what 1 bhakri offers. In reality, 1 to 2 Almond Bhakri are more than enough to satiate you at dinner time.

Eggs are a very good source of protein, that’s known to all. What you need to remember while being on a low carb diet is avoid fried egg and at the same time not use oodles of oil to cook it. Try this recipe of Dry Egg Masala. Also do not get tempted to enjoy it with bread. Remember bread is made from maida – a refined ingredient which raises your blood sugar levels quickly and it has not many nutrients to offer. 

Low Carb Drinks for Dinner

Drinks for a dinner can be the simple Chaas or a cup of herbal tea without sugar. Avoid the usage of sugar as that is high in carbs and has no calorie value. What sugar does it actually cause an inflammation to your body and that is really not good for you.

Try Tulsi Tea which is made from Tulsi or Basil and just has lemon juice added to it and is soothing at night. At all costs skip any aerated dink like Coke, Pepsi, Diet Coke as they are laden with sugar or artificial sweeteners which will push your insulin up and shut down your fat burning. So be sensible.
