Zero Oil Snack Recipes, Indian Veg No Oil Recipes

Snacks, no doubt, are thought to be a weight-watcher’s greatest enemy. But that’s because most snacks that we reach out for—whether chips or fried foods or roadside chaat—are more often deep-fried and full of calories while lacking in the health-factor.

In this section, we have revealed a less-known secret to you, that with a little care, thought, experimentation and know-how, you can make healthy versions of most popular as well as lesser-known snacks!

Here we present to you some snacks which are completely fat-free. Moreover, these are made using healthy ingredients to add on protein, vitamins, minerals and fiber to your diet. This collection of recipes includes healthy versions of snacks like Healthy MomosKothimbir Wadi, Moong Sprouts Panki etc.

While these recipes are zero oil or fat free, we do not recommend a complete zero oil or fat free diet. This is because some quantity of fat is needed for our body functions. It is when we consume excess fat, it gets deposited in the body and can be a ladder to many other diseases apart from weight gain and increased waist line. Instead avoid all the fried and processed foods and opt for small quantity (3 to 4 teaspoon) of olive oil, coconut oil or peanut oil. Check out Which Oils are the Healthiest.

Feast on these zero oil recipes without any guilt, but only occasionally. Also do not forget that moderation is always the key to a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy Zero Oil Indian Roadside Snacks

The most famous snacks on roadside is samosa, vada and bhajia. Hmmm! So tempting. The sight and smell either can attract you towards it.

Momos is a snack sold on the streets in eastern India. People love indulging into this snack especially on a rainy day. Here we present its healthy version, which can be a part of your regular snack – Healthy Momos, which is steamed to perfection. Apart from being non-fried, the health comes from the use of broccoli and bean sprouts for stuffing too. All you need to remember is to have it immediately, else it will turn soggy.

Another famous steamed snack is Gujarati Dhokla. Different types of batter can be steamed in a dhokla thali, cut into pieces and enjoyed at snack time. A zero oil dhokla recipe is Oats Rava Palak Dhokla. This makes use of some rava for binding and thickening, thus treat yourself with these dhoklas only once in a while.

Healthy Zero Oil Indian Khakhra for Snacks

Khakhras are known for their crispiness and it is believed that they get this texture because they are cooked on tava in ghee. But in reality you can make them crisp without use of fat too. We tried it and pen down the recipe of yummy Pav Bhaji Khakhra. These are perfect crunchy-munchy for a healthy snack party.

Similar to khakhra are Herbed Jowar Strips with Spicy Orange Salsa. They are rolled and first cut into strips and then baked in an oven to get that crispiness. But if you wish you can also make them on tava like khakhra by applying pressure using a muslin cloth or khakhra press. The spicy salsa is the centre of attraction when served.

Palak Jeera Nimki is a non-fried and fat free version of famous Bengali jar snack. This snack makes use of no oil at all. Instead it is brimming with fiber (3.4 g / serving) since it is made with wheat flour and spinach puree. Enjoy it with friends and family.

While it makes slight use of sweet chutney, but it is healthier option to reach out for as compared to other processed and fried snacks.
