For instance you can add grated carrot to breakfast items like dosa, idli, steam cake, upma etc. Moringa leaves and Palak (Spinach) can be added while preparing dosa.
4. Idli-Sambar and Steam Cake – Chickpeas curry are healthy breakfast menus. Nutrients like protein, carbohydrate etc are well-balanced in these types of breakfast items. So, make them a habit.
