Sugarless Poha Ladoo: A Quick High Fiber Sweet Recipe


Poha ladoo? Well, the idea does not belong to me. But this one comes from a dear friend, Neelam Avasthy, who had shared this poha ladoo recipe in my group "Healthy Recipes by Homemakers" We are a Facebook platform for sharing healthy recipes only. The group does not entertain recipes that use unhealthy ingredients, so we keep brainstorming and coming up with innovative ideas to make food healthy and delicious. Perhaps this high fiber poha ladoo recipe is such an innovation from Neelam ji.

In the words of Neelam herself,  these ladoos are"low calorie but healthy treat for all. This sweet dish will be liked by everyone at home, light n just melting in mouth. Try it friends n don't forget to give me feedback plz."

Did I say she received feedback from all corners. Everybody simply fell in love with this simple recipe. Neelam Avasthy is a masterchef in herself. An amazing chef and a beautiful soul, she is simply one of my favorite girls in the food world.

I have altered the recipe a little to include my favorite fiber ingredient, oatmeal.

If you are looking for a low calorie sweet, then this is not the right recipe for you.
But it surely is a fiber-packed recipe that gives you amazing flavors and energy boost.
Made of rice grain, poha or flattened rice is a healthy addition to your diet plans. It is even a healthier snacking choice for diabetics. But of course, this poha ladoo recipe is not diabetes-friendly. I have shared a few diabetes-friendly recipes on this blog. Do give them a try. One of my favorite ones is baked poha cutlet.

Poha is the world's first fast food.


Easy to digest, flattened rice is a good diet food for people with stomach problems.
Being a high carb and high-calorie food, poha or rice flakes keep you feeling full for longer.
It is a gluten-free food ingredient - best for people with gluten allergy.


Let's come back to the high fiber sweet recipe:

Homemade Edible Powders: Beetroot, Onion, Garlic, Ginger, Lemon, Orange, Sambar, Kurma, Garam Masala

The title says it all. This post is all about edible powders that can be used as flavoring agents, natural color, and to make food visually attractive. What more do we need? Though I am not too much in favor of drying food and storing the same, this is the best option for those days when these veggies are out of season. During the season, please make it a point to enjoy these fresh and flavorful. There's nothing better and healthier than fresh produce, right?

Okay so the idea to make these powders popped up in my mind as I had too many beetroots at home. When nobody was too eager to have them, the best way to still consume these beauties was to sundry them to powder. I did exactly that.





Then I wondered if I can sundry lemon peels into powder just like we do to orange peels. I have been using orange peels as a face pack thus far. But since the baking bug has bitten me badly, I plan to use it as an edible powder for cakes and cookies too. Fingers crossed for the results though, sin…

The Best Multigrain Digestives: An Airfryer Recipe

The best multigrain digestives? I know I have shared too many digestives recipes but this one is my best. To be frank, I experiment, relish, share, and post the same for you all and then forget all about it because it's time to experiment again with new ingredients. So today it was another kind of digestives - relished by one and all. My cookie making spree has turned my cookie hater hubby into someone who has started to munch on these baked beauties.



Before sharing the simple cookie recipe, it is time to go through oats benefits. You are already aware of my love for oats. One reason you rarely find my recipes without this fibrous cereal grain. Did you go through the fiber benefits?











Go to my fiber benefits post to get deeper insight into the need for including fiber in your diet.



Ingredients
1 cup- oat flour
3/4 cup- whole wheat
1/4 cup- bran
1/4cup- ragi

Diabetic Diet Cake With Watermelon: A Vegan Recipe

While people are still debating whether watermelon is a diabetes-friendly fruit, I still stick to my notion that diabetics can have this fruit for its sheer hydration effect. Not only this, the fruit is loaded with minerals, nutrients, and antioxidants that make it a health-friendly food. However, diabetics with kidney issues should avoid watermelon. Anyway, let's come back to the watermelon cake recipe for diabetics. Well, this cake uses another fruit - banana- which even I do not think is diabetes-friendly. But I went ahead with including a banana for this recipe merely to keep the fat content low. I hope you all know that a banana is a good substitute for an egg for an eggless cake recipe.

Since an egg is also loaded with saturated fat, diabetics should avoid it at any cost. So I had to choose between an egg and a banana for this diabetes-friendly cake, and ended up voting for this humble fruit - which is one of my favorites too. Yes!

When you think of a vegan diabetes-friendl…
