Who doesn’t like rainy days? They are simply the reason to hog onto those crispy veg pakoras and samosas in the evening with tea. However, if you are on a diet or are struggling to lose weight, rainy days might bring you cravings that are hard to die. So, we say, ditch the idea of deep fried samosas and switch to healthy evening snacks that will take care of your craving along with your weight.
Take a look at these 7 evening snacks that are healthy and perfect for a rainy day.
Croquettes is actually an Italian recipe. It is nothing but cheese balls but to give it a healthier twist, prepare them using poha. Make a mixture of soaked poha and boiled potatoes and make little balls out of it. To bring more taste, you can add mozzarella cheese in between the balls and fry them till golden brown. You can always choose air-fryer over deep frying to keep them healthy.
Oats and Date Cookies
Cookies are the best complimentary snack to go with evening tea. Make a dough using wheat flour, powder of oats, dates, baking powder and baking soda with milk. Make small balls out of it and press them lightly with your hands to form a cookie. Bake them in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes at 180° C.
