Really? So pancakes, fries, cutlets, bread etc are lighter than Indian Breakfast? I doubt. Many of the Indian breakfast are nutritious. Let's check out popular Indian breakfasts-

  • Poha-

Is this heavy breakfast? No, not at all. You want to make it lighter, make it without potatoes.

  • Idli-

Is this heavy? No. It is the lightest breakfast. It's healthy too.

  • Dhokla-
