Stepwise pictures:


  1. You can also follow the same recipe using puffed rice instead of flattened rice.
  2. Reduce the yogurt if it is very thick and add some water for consistency. I used homemade curd/yogurt made from low fat milk.
  3. Use only low fat yogurt, so you decrease the amount of fat and increase the protein and other nutrition values.
  4. This food is high in Carbohydrate and a store house of nutrients like Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Manganese with a low Glycemic Index. So, this will be a healthy and great nutrient rich energy source that will brighten your day.
