Kathal Paneer Kofta Curry Or Raw Jackfruit And Cottage Cheese Balls In Gravy

Kathal paneer kofta curry or raw jackfruit and cottage cheese balls in gravy.
Gravy is rich creamy and delicious without cashew nuts or almond. Only nutritious melon seeds are used to thickened the gravy.
Low calorie and protein, vitamins and mineral rich melon seeds are not only excellent for thickened the gravy but also enhance the taste.

Melons derive their rich colour from beta carotin, which is good for eye.Dried melon seeds contain unsaturated fats and fibers. Watermelon seeds are rich in lysine, which can work wonders for diabetics.

Summers are here! And if there is one thing we can be thankful for in this scorching weather, it would have to be all the delicious fruits the season brings with it. A variety of Melons are seen at this time of the year, being sold by fruit vendors across the country at local vegetable markets.
Summer melons, be it musk melon, watermelon or honey dew melon, are packed with a dozen health benefits. But while relishing on the juicy flesh, have you been discarding the seeds laden with nutrition and health benefits? According to Healing Foods, it strongly recommends loading up on these miniature nutritional bombs you have ignored all your life. It notes, “Eat the seeds: The dried seeds contain unsaturated fats and fibers, makes nutritious addition to savoury dishes”.

Macrobiotic Nutritionist and Health Practitioner, Shilpa Arora says, “Everything begins with the seeds. These are living foods that give each cell in our body a renewed energy. All seeds are loaded with enzymes that aid digestion and absorption. In fact they have more enzymes than the actual fruit in the concentrated form.”

She goes on to say, “Summer melon seeds are great source of energy like magnesium, which is vital for a healthy heart. It is great for diabetics as it is loaded with essential amino acids like lysine and tryptophan. Melon seeds also provide a wonderful cure for insomnia because tryptophan induces relaxation and sleep.”

A different way to make our very own paneer bhurji. This lip-smacking paneer bhurji can be serve as a side dish or make sandwich stuffing or use as pizza topping.

We normally make paneer bhurji with onion garlic tomato and some Indian spices. But this time made with Italian seasonings.
Well now you can ask that how I get the idea of making this Italian flavoured paneer bhurji. Because this week our 187 #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is desi twist suggested by Kalyani Sri who blog at https://www.sizzlingtastebuds.com/?m=1

According to Kalyani “the base idea has to be an Indian dish but not an Indian ingredient’. So I have made our humble paneer bhurji Italian. And loved the taste. Try it, I am sure you will also love the taste.
You can use bell peppers or any vegetable of your choice.

Recipe

Paneer or cottage cheese – 2 cup, crumbled

Onion – 1, finely chopped

Green chilli – 1 – 2, finely chopped

Garlic – 2 – 3 cloves, minced

Green peas – 1/2 cup, boiled or frozen

Sweet corn – 1/2 cup, boiled

Capsicum – 1, cubed

Tomato – 2 medium, cubed

Onion – 1, cubed

Oregano – 2 teaspoon

Dried Basil – 1 teaspoon

Rosemary – 1/2 teaspoon, optional

Red chilli flakes – 1 teaspoon

Black pepper powder – 1 teaspoon

Pizza sauce – 2 tablespoon

Vinegar – 1 tablespoon

Tomato sauce – 1 tablespoon

Olive oil – 2 tablespoon

Salt to taste

Chopped scallion or onion green – 1 tablespoon, optional

Method

4. Add cubed onion, tomato, capsicum and salt. Add salt carefully. Sauce has enough salt. Saute for 2 minutes.

5. Add boiled sweet corn and green peas. Mix well.

6. Add crumbled paneer or cottage cheese and mix. I have used homemade paneer or cottage cheese. Get the recipe here.

7. Reduce the heat. Cook on simmer for 4-5 minutes or till it dried up. Stir continuously. Cooking on low heat helps the paneer to absorb the flavour of herbs.

8. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
Add 1/2 tablespoon chopped scallion or onion green if using. Mix and remove from heat.

9. Garnish with remaining 1/2 tablespoon scallion. Serve hot as a side dish with any bread or make sandwich stuffing. Even you can use it as pizza topping.

Broccoli With Egg And Tomato

Broccoli with egg and tomato.
A superbly delicious and healthy side dish. You can serve it with toasted bread in breakfast or serve as a side dish in lunch or dinner.
If you like eggs then its perfect for you.

Not only delicious but protein, vitamins and minerals rich eggs makes it nutritious.

When it comes to great-tasting nutrition, broccoli is an all-star food with many health benefits. While low in calories, broccoli is rich in essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to fiber.
Researchers are studying the anti-cancer properties of Sulforaphane and have come to some interesting conclusions, although more research is needed.
And is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too. It also provides fiber and is low in calories.
Broccoli is a great source of vitamins K and C, a good source of folate (folic acid) and also provides potassium, fiber. Vitamin C – builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and protects the body from damaging free radicals.

And broccoli and eggs are great combo.

Why : Research shows that when you add a food containing a reasonable amount of vitamin D to a calcium-rich food, you absorb about 60% more of the calcium.

“Broccoli along with other green leafy veg are one of the richest plant-based sources of calcium, while eggs are one of nature’s best sources of vitamin D – a nutrient that is hard to get from food alone,” says Rob.

Sending this post to 181 #Foodiemonday bloghop #Levantine cuisine.
This week very talented blogger and our group member Sujata Shukla who blog at Pepper On Pizza
suggested the theme. Do check her blog for many wonderful recipes. She has a vast collection of regional and continental recipes.

Levantine cuisine is the traditional cuisine of the Levant, known in Arabic as the Bilad ash-Sham and Mashriq, which covers a large area of the Eastern Mediterranean. It continues to carry an influentially mainstream character in a majority of the dishes today. It is found in the modern states of Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Syria, and parts of southern Turkey near Adana, Gaziantep, and Antakya (the former Vilayet of Aleppo). In the broader family of Mediterranean cuisine, Cypriot cuisine also has strong Levantine influences. Conversely, some of the dishes may have early origins in neighboring regions, but have long since become traditions in the Levant.

I am sharing this healthy and delicious lentil soup from Lebanese cuisine.
Lebanese cuisine is a Levantine style of cooking that includes an abundance of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, starches, fresh fish and seafood; animal fats are consumed sparingly. Poultry is eaten more often than red meat, and when red meat is eaten, it is usually lamb on the coast, and goat meat in the mountain regions. It also includes copious amounts of garlic and olive oil, often seasoned by lemon juice. Chickpeas and parsley are also staples of the Lebanese diet. Lebanese cooking derives its style from various influences, such as Turkish, Arab, and Mediterranean cuisines.

Mangal Ooti Or Manipuri Dry Peas Curry

Mangal ooti or Manipuri dry peas curry from Manipur cuisine.
A very simple and easy yet delicious curry. You don’t need any powder spices to make it except turmeric.
My first blog post was also from this beautiful state Manipur Chakhao Kheer.
And our pride Mary Kom an Indian Olympic boxer is also from Manipur.

Surrounded by nine hills with an oval shaped valley at the center, a natural made Jewel and hence the name “A Jeweled land” or ‘Manipur’, it’s literal translation. Even the first prime minister of India famously said Manipur was the Jewel of India. Apart from being a nature’s gift to India, Manipur is also a melting pot of culture. It is the birthplace of Polo, the sport and the birthplace of Ras Lila, a classical dance form.

Potato With Green Peas

Potatoes with green peas.
A spicy, no onion garlic and delicious potato dish. Best accompany with puri, paratha, roti, dal chawal or make sandwich stuffing.
Little different from nimona or green peas curry.
I have used cilantro or coriander leaves with green peas for flavour but if you don’t like cilantro then you can omit it. Potatoes will be lip-smacking without it too.
In winter my vegetable vendor brings lots of colourful vegetables. And we buy green peas mostly every day. You can add these in any dish. Even green peas stuffed kachori or paratha are most favourite delicacies in this season.

You may also like Matar kofta or green peas dumplings.

 

 

And green peas are also healthy and nutritious. And high in many nutrients and antioxidants.

Green peas are a popular vegetable. They are also quite nutritious and contain a fair amount of fiber and antioxidants.

Additionally, research shows they may help protect against some chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and cancer.

They have been part of the human diet for hundreds of years and are consumed all over the world.

Green peas have an impressive nutrition profile.
Their calorie content is fairly low, with only 62 calories per 1/2-cup (170-gram) serving.
About 70% of those calories come from carbs and the rest are provided by protein and a small amount of fat.
Furthermore, peas contain just about every vitamin and mineral you need, in addition to a significant amount of fiber.

Beetroot Green With Peas And Corn

Beetroot green with green peas and corn.
Don’t discard the beet greens. You can make delicious and healthy side dish with it. Green peas and sweet corn made it attractive and super tempting. Even kids will love this healthy and yummy beetroot green. Serve it with steamed rice or any bread.

IMG_20190119_111147.jpg

 

Have a look at the health benefits of beetroot green.
Besides supplying good amounts of protein, phosphorus, and zinc, beet greens are also a great source of fiber. Packed with antioxidants, they’re high in vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese, and low in fat and cholesterol. Based on a 2,000 calorie diet, daily values of beet greens contain: 220% of vitamin A, 60% of vitamin C, 16% of calcium, and 15% of iron.

As if that weren’t enough, studies have also shown that the vitamin K in beet greens contains blood clotting properties, helps ward off osteoporosis, works with calcium to boost bone strength, and may also play a role in fighting Alzheimer’s disease. Beet greens have a higher iron content than spinach, and a higher nutritional value than the beetroot itself.

The vitamin A content in beet greens helps strengthen the immune system and stimulates production of antibodies and white blood cells. The beta-carotene in vitamin A is a known antioxidant that can fight the effects of free radicals in the body along with cancer and heart disease.
