    Dinner Starters / Soups

    Dinner Starters / Soups

    You must be amazed, why starters are an important part of our full course meal?! It’s simply because, after a long gap of over 3-4 hours, if you get to feed directly on the dinner platter, you might overeat, and develop obesity. Starters enhance your right kind of appetite, by stimulating the digestive juices in the right proportions, just before a heavy meal.

    Shilpa Khandelwal Goyal has a full bunch of healthy Indian and Western Starters for you on her channel. My recommendations are, Carrot Ginger Soup, Lemon Coriander, Cabbage Soup, Beet Carrot Soup, etc.

    For Indian starters, you can have Paneer Tawa Masala, Low Calorie Dahi Bada, Soybean Tikka Masala, and my favorite, Super Healthy Vegetable Stir Fry.
