  • Instead of deep frying the kuttu ki tikki or pakoras, look for options where you can simply cook them on a non- stick pan like dosa, idli or roti.
  •  Go more for healthy drinks like coconut water, lime water without salt, green tea and buttermilk. They will keep your stomach full and resist you from craving for unhealthy snacks.

  • Mix more of fibrous vegetables like spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, capsicum, bottle guard, etc with potatoes and sabudana.
  • Instead of making Kuttu puris go for its chapattis. They too are very yummy and will also make you feel lighter.
  • Kuttu is not very easy to digest so make Samak rice if you want to stay healthy. Samak can be prepared in any form whether sweet or salty.
  • Whenever you feel hungry, eat fruits, raita, dates, dry fruits, roasted faux nuts and skip the options of those fast namkeens as they are high in salt and fat.

  • Substitute sugar with jaggery or honey.
  • Use skimmed milk instead of full cream milk.

  • Cook more items with paneer rather than potatoes.
  • Mild dehydration can result in fatigue, dry mouth, thirst and headache so drink enough fluid on a fast.
  • The best way to break a fast is to continue eating normally and get back into your regular eating routine.
  • Have enough protein as it will help minimize muscle loss and keep your appetite in check.
