Learn How To Make Your Messy Unhealthy Chaat Healthy and evade #FatTax ! #ekplate #streetfood #ekplatechaat #PaniPuri

Let’s face it we all love the street food chaats, come what may ! Even if ek plate is on a diet, ek plate can't resist the temptation of Chaat. It is tasty, appetizing and probably not all that unhealthy. Ek plate is here to help you find out a middle way out ! Yes, we will help you eat chaat but in a healthy way ! Listed below are some of the most popular chaats and their calorie values and ways to make it healthy ! 1. Aloo Chaat big_tawa_aloo_chat-138 Deep fried crispy brown potatoes served with chaat masala and a mixture of sweet and tangy chutney make for a lip-smacking snack. Potatoes are healthy on their own but deep frying them makes them fattening and unhealthy. *Ek plate Tip* A healthier preparation would be pan-fried or baked potatoes with less oil. Also, keep the portion size in mind while indulging in aloo chaat. Calories: Approximately 350 calories (based on serving size). 2. Bhel Puri Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 12.13.34 pm Bhel puri is made from puffed rice with mash boiled potatoes, sev, tomatoes and onions along with tangy tamarind sauce and spicy coriander sauce. Bhel puri is a healthy chaat option if you’re watching your waistline. *Ek plate Tip* Try avoiding the sweet tamarind chutney and sev (remember its fried !) Calories: Approximately 200-250 calories (based on serving size). 3. Pani Puri Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 12.15.06 pm Pani puri, a.k.a. puchka, Gol gappa, etc is a round, hollow. fried crispy shell, filled with tangy tamarind water, chili, chaat masala, potato, onion and boiled chhole (chickpeas). Even though the shell is fried, filling is mostly healthy, so this one is on our approved list of chaats. *Ek plate Tip*  Instead of Chickpeas or potato use sprouts like boiled moong. Calories: 150-180 calories for 4-5 medium sized puries. 4. Papri Chaat Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 12.18.14 pm This is essentially a mixture of crispy fried dough wafers made from refined wheat flour (maida), chickpeas, boiled potatoes, and yogurt, which is served with tamarind chutney and garnished with sev. It has the nutritional benefits of boiled vegetables and yogurt, but the base (papri) is fried and made from maida, which has a high glycemic index and is loaded with calories and fat. *Ek plate Tip* Try baking the puries instead of frying them. Calories: Approximately 300 calories for a medium size serving. Do you have a healthy version of any chaats ? Let us know in the Comment below !
