Much has been said and written about how fitness is not just a part of one’s life, but is a lifestyle in itself that includes a whole gamut of things — what one eats, when they rest, workout and everything in between. And if you have been thinking of adapting a healthy lifestyle, there is no better time than now to start. Since food plays an essential role in one’s health and well-being, here is a super healthy recipe from actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna’s dabba.

As part of her recently started #WhatsInYourDabba challenge, she shared a delectable recipe of Beetroot Tikkis.

Here’s what she mentioned in a post on Instagram. Take a look.

Can your tikkis be healthy?

While most of us love our aloo tikkis, why not give it a healthy twist by replacing the potato stuffing with something more nutritious for a power-packed snack that can also help you keep fuller for longer. So instead of opting for starch-high foods like potatoes, opt for vegetables like beetroot, carrot or even a mix of various veggies. The key to also make a healthy snack lies in the amount of oil used. Instead of deep-frying, shallow frying in small quantities helps prevent the loss of nutrients. Shallow frying also helps bring out flavours to food with a change in texture.
