Know your calories - masala dosa & idli vada

Posted on

As soon as the day breaks, we need a healthy breakfast to kick start the day. Since it is the first meal of the day, it should contain the required amount of calories to keep you active throughout the day. Most of us here in South India would swear by Masala dosa and Idli vada. And that is exactly why we have analyzed the calorie and macro content of our favorite day starter.

We analyzed few samples purchased from the quick serve restaurants here at bangalore to arrive at our results.

The idea is to sensitize ourselves to the nutrient values in food items that have become an integral part of our daily routine so as to ensure we are better informed when we try to meet our daily calorie goals.
