People have become more health conscious as a result restaurants and cafes have introduced a line up of healthy meals which are low in carb or made out of an alternative ingredient to make it healthy.
A few alternative ingredients I use-
Whole wheat pasta
Red rice flour
Make buriyani out of brown basmathi rice.
Add a few whole wheat pastas for your salad.
Make pittu using red raw rice flour.
You can make rotti using kurakkan flour.
