Shilpa Shetty Kundra is not just the fittest foodie of Bollywood, she also loves to cook and she periodically shares her love for food and cooking with the world. Shilpa’s ‘Sunday binge’ videos are very popular with her Instagram followers and she even has a Youtube show called “The Art of Loving Food”, where she cooks healthy versions of popular Indian and other dishes. From breakfast foods, to soups and desserts, it seems that Shilpa has mastered the art of making every dish healthy and low in calories.

In this particular episode of The Art of Loving Food, Shilpa shows us how to make an oats chilla. The chilla is a popular breakfast food and is a lot like the crepes that Americans love to eat for breakfast. But instead of using refined flour, the Indian version uses gram flour instead. Shilpa shares an even healthier version of the chilla, that is made up of oats, instead of gram flour and hence, it’s gluten-free. Oats are incredibly filling as they are high in fiber and are also loaded with healthy carbohydrates. ALSO READ: 5 times Shilpa Shetty Kundra proved that she’s the fittest foodie in town!
