    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:23 It is believed that there is no super food in the Indian cuisine like sattu. What is sattu? Sattu is simply flour made from roasted chickpeas (brown ones) or chana as we know it. Its different from besan atta. Besan atta is made from raw chana dal whereas sattu is made from roasted ones. When protein powders were not available or made, olden time wrestlers, soldiers and body builders would have a glass of sattu mixed in water. Sattu is very rich in protein, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium and a good source of carbohydrates too. Sattu drink is famous during the hot summer days as it not only refreshes the body…

  • 363.red cabbage and paneer parathas

    January 31, 2014mayurisjikoni

    full of fibre    After having made some red cabbage and carrot salad recently, I was still left with quite a bit of red cabbage. Didn’t want to make it into a sabji. A craving for some sort of stuffed parathas was constantly playing in my brains and refused to calm down.  I had paneer in the fridge. So the options were corn, cabbage, cauliflower or spinach and paneer parathas. Looking at the red cabbage I thought why not red cabbage parathas. So there, in a matter of an hour stuffed parathas were ready. While I was making the parathas, hubby dear commented, ” I am actually not hungry”, and walks out of the kitchen. I continued my work, and he comes back after 10…

  • 201. corn paneer parathas

    November 21, 2012mayurisjikoni

    a never fail combination A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to get nice tender fresh white corn. White corn tastes different from the the sweet corn. Before sweet corn made an appearance in the market here, white corn was used for everything right from sabjis to fillings and even boiled to eat with nice melted butter. I decided to use the corn to make parathas. The recipe has been in my book for years but never got down to trying it out. Instead of the usual pickles or raitas to go with the paratha, I made some tomato chutney. Replace it with sweet corn if you don’t find any white one. CORN PANEER PARATHAS Makes 6 For the dough : 2 cups wheat…

  • 129. palak paneer parathas

    green with envy? Not at all! Another secret way to get kids to eat spinach (palak) and cauliflower is to disguise it into a paratha. On its own, many kids don’t like spinach. That is why there are so many ways to add the spinach to the kids favourite dishes without them really making a fuss about it. These parathas are stuffed with paneer and cauliflower and most kids love paneer (cottage cheese). For this recipe I prefer to buy the ready made paneer as its not too soft. Home made one tends to be too soft for this recipe.  PALAK PANEER PARATHAS Makes 6 parathas For the dough : 2 cups wheat flour (atta) ½ tsp salt 2 tbsps oil ¾ cup spinach puree…

  • 45. aloo paratha

    May 12, 2012mayurisjikoni

    potatoes are kaka’s favourite    My kaka (uncle) loves potatoes, be it in the form of shaak, baked, fried, or as aloo parathas or bateta vada. As long as potatoes are the main ingredient. I don’t blame him. Potato is such a versatile vegetable that many dishes can be created from it. I know most of you know how to make aloo parathas or potato stuffed parathas. However, have you ever noticed how you either get left with some stuffing or the dough? After so many years of cooking experience, I still get left with a tablespoon or so of either. It sits in the fridge till one day it says hello to the dustbin. Not any more because I actually measured out all the…
