Cooking is as much about developing our skills to whip up lip-smacking dishes as much as it is about preparing nutritious food. One can’t master the art of cooking without paying close attention to healthy cooking. While we may be taking all efforts to cook nutritious meals, one of the pain points that add to umpteen calories is snacks. Bingeing on snacks, even those prepared at home, may not be a healthy call to take. So, what can you do? It is time you tweak the ingredients to make those snacks more healthy and nutritious. Chef Neha Deepak Shah gave us this delicious recipe, albeit with a healthy twist.
