Potassium Rich Indian Breakfast Recipes

What is potassium?

Potassium is a key mineral which is mainly needed to maintain electrolyte balance in the body. It also maintains blood pressure and cardiac health. A low level of potassium in the body is a load on the functioning of the heart.

Do you know how much potassium you need daily?

An average adult needs around 4700 mg of potassium on a daily basis to perform these functions healthily. A deficiency of this mineral can be noticed with the following symptoms:

3 symptoms of Low Potassium
1. Bone pain
2. Muscular weakness
3. Skipped heart beats

Include potassium in your diet right from Breakfast, the first meal of your day. Certain fruits and vegetables and most dals and pulses are a very good source of potassium. It is not very difficult to make them a part of your breakfast.

Potassium Rich Foods for Diabetics

If you are diabetic or overweight, we suggest you avoid potato, sweet potato and watermelon and also replace milk, curd and paneer with their low fat counterparts. And on days you haven’t had a chance to cook a potassium rich breakfast, ensure to have juices like Spinach and Mint JuicePapaya Coconut Drink etc. or have a coconut water to make up for your early morning potassium requirement.

8 Potassium Rich Indian Breakfast Recipes

1. Maharashtrian poha is a very common breakfast option in India. It is available on the streets of Mumbai too. Very mildly spiced with chopped green chillies and flavoured with sautéed onions, it is enjoyed by kids, adults and senior citizen too. Here we have tried the recipe Sprouted Matki Poha. Just the addition of a fistful sprouts, supplements this breakfast recipe with enough potassium. It isn’t too much effort making this… do try it.


2. Bananas are brimming with potassium too. They are a quick source of energy and carbs and thus perfect for breakfast. We suggest Banana Nut Oatmeal Recipe as a potassium rich recipe for early mornings. Oats are filled with fiber and you are sure to be in love with this breakfast recipe. There is no use of sugar. We have added some honey for a sweet taste. This quick recipe lends 375.9 mg of potassium per serving.

3. Coconut water is a very good source of potassium. You can have it plain or pair it with fresh fruits for added flavour and nutrition. Try Blueberry Coconut Water Smoothie for breakfast as an accompaniment to other recipe. Blueberry is also a good source of fibre, potassium and antioxidant anthocyanin, which promotes heart health.

4. Bread is many people’s choice for breakfast. But we all are aware that white bread is full of refined maida which is devoid of many nutrients including fiber.

Here’s a maida-free bread enriched with potassium rich almonds. Further it is topped with another potassium rich ingredient – avocado. Filled with good fats and fiber, this Almond and Avocado Toast is a perfect satiating breakfast option.

6. Another filling breakfast is Chatpata Rajma Wrap. The spiciness of rajma is balanced here by rolling up this rajma wrap with a chunky curd dressing. A protein and potassium packed rajma wrap, this helps you stay strong and healthy! This is a slightly elaborate recipe, so you need to soak rajma the previous night and plan it in advance.
