Almost every one of us enjoy a delicious plate of bhel but every time you tuck into one remember it packs almost 320 to 340 calories in one plate .
Not meaning to scare you but if you are on a mission to lose weight then a diet bhel is suitable for the craving of this popular street food that we all love to indulge in .
While we are on weight management , there is no need to give up completely on our favorite snacks .
Just a little trimming of the bhel of certain ingredients like the generous amounts of fried sev as topping or the sprinkling of fried pooris will drastically reduce the calories intake to a mere 205 .
Iam quite happy to have my bhel this way and it doesn't taste bad too.
If you must have that sev topping look for roasted sev that many stores now stock and roasted pooris .
