10 Easy Indian Gluten Free Recipes That Go Excellently With Your Everyday Food Habits

Posted: August 22, 2017

A search for gluten free recipes throws up food options that do not, unfortunately, cater to the Indian food sensibilities. Here are 10 recipes that you must try, then!

Gluten sensitivity, the latest buzzword, has become quite a hype currently, and many people who favour adding organic foods to their diet, and are careful about holistic health and fitness, also go in for gluten free food.

However, while there is a glut of gluten free recipes in the western world, there seem to be very little that is compatible with a typical Indian diet. Consequently here I present these wonderful, easy to make gluten free recipes that will not be out of place in an Indian kitchen!

Gluten Free Chapati

The humble chapati or roti is a staple in most Indian diets. Chapatis made of wheat are the biggest contributor of carbs in our diet. How, then, can one avoid them? Worry not. Try this gluten free recipe, and viola! You have your usual chapati!
