Two out of 3 people at my workplace are on a 'diet.' Someone said 'donuts' and the diets were called off. Dieting is downright difficult, especially when we don't enjoy the 'bad food' included in our diet plan and all we can think of is the delicious delicacies we are missing out on.
Generally people believe that Indian food is spicy, heavy and oily, which isn't good for your figure. But that isn't always the case. These 10 delicacies are healthy, extremely tasty and low calorie. Diet on!

The concoction of the chewy poha with soft and moist peas and onions result in a hearty, light and an amazingly satisfying affair.
