Puri Sabzi And Chole Bhature(Food Watch)

In India this dishes is almost common for eating almost in every household.Go walking in morning whether in sharp galis in Banaras where people spent their morning on roadside shop for breakfast for hot puri and sabzi or in delhi chole bhature as spicy as you can imagine picture is same they love it.Well,here we are going to watch how much calories these foods carries:
"Chhole bhature
450 calories (17.5 grams fat) = Mopping floors for 91 minutes
Though the calorie content for chhole bhature and puri bhaji is almost the same, the difference lies mainly in their fat content.
Pulses (chhole) can be a good source of protein if combined with wheat or rice. Being a complex carbohydrate, it is a good source of fibre too; in fact, eating just one serving can be quite filling.
The source of high fat in this recipe is the fried bhatura. Chhole by itself is not fattening and can be eaten even by dieters. Weight watchers can substitute whole wheat rotis, rice or even bread for the bhatura. Puri (4 pieces) bhaji (potato-based)
450 calories (20 grams fat) = Mopping floors for 91 minutes
The overall value of this food differs from chhole bhature when it comes to the fat content, which in this case is higher by a few grams.
Nutrition-wise too, chhole is a better choice, as it provides protein and fibre, both of which are lacking in potatoes.
What's more, potatoes do not have the satiety value of chhole -- you may end up taking more than one serving and still not feel full enough.More Food Watch.
