Ingredients
Multigrain base topped with arugula, feta, sautéed onions and seasonal fruit
Calorie count 800 to 850
Nutritionist's take
This can work as a substitute for the standard Indian meal of roti-sabji, though it's high on carbs. It includes different grains and vegetables and is a good source of micronutrients, proteins and healthy fats. The fruits add extra vitamins and minerals to this dish, and the feta will give you a protein.
