Hereby, Presenting the Top 10 Street foods that are healthy to have. Let’s have a look at the list!

  • Roasted Bhutta – A Roasted Bhutta is a light and comfy snack that can be enjoyed at any time of the day. For instance, this healthy snack is low in calories, low in fat, and is full of carotenoids (lutein and zeaxanthin). It keeps the gut healthy and also decreases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

 

 

  • Coconut Water –  Coconut Water is a perfect summer drink to rehydrate the body with the best electrolytes that enhance the absorption of waste and toxic chemicals from your body. And don’t forget to ask for the coconut malai, after relishing the drink, as it is a rich source of healthy fat.

 

 

  • Kebabs and Tikkas – Mainly considered a non-vegan snack low in calories and are roasted on coal. From mouth-watering paneer to tender mushroom or soya, you can have them with green chutney and freshly grated salad.

 

 

  • Sweet potato chaat/ Shakarkandi – Loaded with vitamin A, C, fibre, and iron, this simple Indian street snack is good for weight-watchers. This low-calorie snack tastes better with when topped with lemon juice.

 

 

  • Omelette – A favourite choice for all seasons, needs no introduction as it is easily available at street stalls. For a change, there are variations with toast and Maggi that you can explore over a cup of tea. Rich in proteins, it is one of the most widely eaten egg product in day to day life.

 

 

  • Fruit Juice – From sweet lemon to carrot, the range of healthy fresh drinks is countless. All you need to do is to decide which one you want and be strict with the street vendor to wash the machine before extracting the juice.

 

 

  • Jhal Moori – Moori or what you call it as puffed rice is a very easily digestible snack. This light snack is crunchy and spicy too. Topped with spices, vegetables, peanuts and lemon juice, this snack has various regional names but is equally delightful everywhere.

 

 

  • Fruit Chaat – Anti-oxidants play a key role in protection from ageing and diseases so, having fruit chaat should be on your list if you’re hungry and wandering for something to eat. Healthy, easily digestible, and good for metabolism. So, next time when you are out on street, instead of drooling over paani-puri, try the fruit chaat with a pinch of spices and salt to add a twist.

 

 

  • Boiled eggs – You can easily find a stall selling boiled eggs in every corner of the city. These low-cost high-quality protein sources are full of vitamin K, biotin, selenium, vitamin B12 and vitamin D. You can enjoy them with black salt and pepper, topped with finely chopped onion, green chilli, and coriander leaves.

 

 

  • Dosa/Idli – As a source of protein and healthy carbs for vegetarians, they are made of rice batter and urad dal batter that is truly healthy. Best served with sambhar and coconut chutney, they are filling yet light.

Top 5 Hangover Food For The Morning After

So, it’s Saturday night and time to get that black dress out of your closets and needless to say vodka. For all those of you who like to dance the night away with glass in hand, but don’t want to feel like the truck run over you in the morning, here’s some good news. Presenting the Top 5 Hangover foods that are sure to have you up and running in no time.

  • Watermelon – Alcohol depletes the nutrients in our body so taking up watermelon will is almost a sure shot way of replenishing the lost nutrients. Low blood sugar levels, can have you feeling weak and unsteady – all the more reason for you to eat a watermelon, which is rich in fructose content. The fruit, which is rich in water, boosts the hydration levels in the body as well.
  • Bananas Rich in magnesium and potassium, these two minerals are considered to be lost at an alarming rate when consuming alcohol, so taking up bananas in the morning can actually help you to recover from those lost nutrients as bananas are rich in these minerals. An added bonus is the ability of the banana to work as a natural antacid, which helps settle your stomach and reduce the gassy feeling that you wake up with, post a night of boisterous boozing.
  • Oats – Alcohol possesses a diuretic effect that is it increases the excretion of urine from the body.  Oats, which is rich in vitamin B, is good for not just your liver, but your mood as well. In addition to this, oats neutralize the acidity levels in the body, absorb harmful toxins and raise the blood sugar levels in the body.
  • Coconut Water –  Rich in electrolytes, coconut water serves as an excellent hangover remedy. As opposed to sports-drinks, which are carbonated, coconut water is excellent when it comes to hydrating your dehydrated body after a night of alcohol.
  • Ginger –  Alcohol has the tendency to have you feeling queasy and there’s nothing like ginger to settle your stomach and relieve nausea.

So, put on your heals and get the step right as you have the proper remedy now.

Prankster, Gurugram

Howdy People!
So, It’s a new start and I hope you like this. Here, I’ll be reviewing all the cafes (veg as well as non-veg) surrounding Delhi-NCR. Since Delhi is full of foodie souls, this is the right location to check the place before you go!
In this blog, I’ll be reviewing one of the most hyped cafe in Sec 29, Gurgaon, presently, Gurugram, named PRANKSTER. As its name, even the place is unique in itself.
I want to start by quoting that “Food is a journey that has endless layers of flavour if you wish to get into its depth enjoy it simply.”
There are a few thing which has to be kept in mind before visiting any place. On reviewing the place myself, here are some few things I want to share with you guys!
Seating section – When it comes to seating, there shouldn’t be any compromise in the comfort. The cafe is divided into several sections named classroom, canteen, mixology lab, hostel room, library and a bar, each having a capacity of 10-12 members at least.
Ambience –This place is full of young energetic  crowd. An amazing place for couples as well as those looking for ‘good girl crowd’.
Cocktails – Prankster punk, Lemon juice, Orange juice and Vodka amazingly mixed and served.

Starters – 

  • Nitro cooked Dahi Bhalla Ice cream :

The dahi was frozen in form of ice cream and served with chatpata Bhel over it.

  • Choley kulche doughnuts:

Here the twist was the kulche were in form of doughnuts and stuffed with Choley. Served with amazing carrot mousse and Choley Tari.

 

     

  • TT lamb chop:

The lamb was very very tender and it’s something that can never be found in any other place.

The lamb was tender, juicy and very delicious.

  • Paneer tikka Fattir (Pizza) :

The pizza base was that of pattez making it very unique but equally tempting.

  • Gallati Boti Lamb Cigars, Gari Mayo :

This was again a non-veg retreat.

The lamb was so damn tender and mouth watering with every bite. With the first bite itself, it was on my recommendation list.

 

Main course –

1.Dal Makhani – Again is palatable and amazing.

2. Rampuri Gosht – Very tender and deliciously cooked mutton, a must try by all non-veg lovers.

3. Panner Makhni – The Gravy was made sweet from coconut milk having grated coconut too , panner being tender in taste made the dish very unique in taste with a prankster touch.

4.Keema Pulao -This was something different for me. The pulao served with chopped keema chicken made the dish bliss for Non-veg lovers. The aroma of the chicken can be felt in rice too.

5.Dessert-Mango cassata Swiss roll – A cassata formed mango cake served with mango puree made it too Mangolicious for all.

**Recommended**
