Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Red rice flakes are rich in fiber. This flattened rice has the benefits of red rice such as the cancer-fighting selenium as well as manganese, magnesium, vitamins B1, B3 and B6, iron and essential fatty acids. Green peas are a very good source of vitamin K, manganese, dietary fiber, vitamin B1, copper, vitamin C, phosphorus, and folate. They are also a good source of vitamin B6, niacin, vitamin B2, molybdenum, zinc, protein, magnesium, iron, potassium, and choline. Carrot and beans are rich in dietary fiber.


  • Red rice poha - 30g
  • Onion chopped - 10g
  • Carrot - 10g
  • Beans - 10g
  • Green chilly - 1, finely chopped
  • Ginger finely minced -  ¼ Teaspoon
  • Green peas -  10g
  • Coriander leaves -  10g

While the red poha is resting, boil the green peas, beans and carrot and chop the onions, green chillies and ginger. Step 2 Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel, add the mustard seeds, asafoetida and curry leaves and allow the mustard seeds to splutter.

Rice And Moong Dal Idli

These idlis are light, nutritious, easy to digest & having a good amount of fiber due to the green moong dal. Brown rice and moong dal combination, that is the cereal-pulse combination are also giving us the complete protein. Thus it’s a good tiffin treat!

Egg White Frittata

This recipe contains Sweet potatoes which are high in Vitamin A and beta carotene as well as potassium; sweet potatoes also contain a good amount of Vitamin E, calcium and folate. Adding vegetables like carrot and peas increase vitamin and mineral content. Egg white and feta cheese are good sources of protein and calcium respectively and it makes the frittata more palatable. Fresh basil leaves in the recipe thus enhance the flavour of the frittata.

Scrambled Eggs Burrito

A very filling and healthy recipe. Egg whites provide high-quality protein whereas whole wheat or multigrain wraps provide healthy carbohydrates and fiber, thus giving a feeling of fullness and satiety.
