My quest for nutritious, healthy recipes landed me onto a recipe from Aayi's recipes. This recipe here is my modification of Shipla's recipe into a high protein recipe. We absolutely loved it with chapathis. Get experimental, add your touch to this dish and let me know.
My quest for nutritious, healthy recipes also gave rise to a colorful, high protein, yummy, tangy, chatpata salad loaded with nutrients. Try it and I am sure you'll love it.
1/2 cup white beans
1/2 cup green peas
1/2 cup corn
1 medium tomato chopped
1/2 cup capsicum chopped
2 tbl spoon chopped coriander leaves
1 inch chopped ginger
4-5 chopped garlic cloves
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tbl spoon lemon juice
1/2 tea spoon coriander powder
1/2 tea spoon cumin powder
1/2 tea spoon garam masala
2 green chillies
2 table spoons of oil
Salt to taste
a pinch of turmeric
1/4 tea spoon black pepper (optional)
1/4 tea spoon red chilli powder (optional)
Soak white beans for about 5-6 hours. Cook them in a pressure cooker until they are done and soft and keep aside along with the stock.
Heat oil in a pan and add finely chopped garlic and fry for few minutes.
Add finely chopped ginger, finely chopped green chillies, finely chopped onions and salt and fry for few minutes until onions get translucent.
Add finely chopped tomato and little salt so that whatever moisture is present in the tomatoes is released and the tomatoes cook faster. We want to just fry the tomatoes a little here not exactly cook it so saute the tomatoes for a minute or two.
Add boiled beans, green peas, corn, chopped capsicum, water or bean stock or vegetable stock just enough to cook the veggies.
To this add red chilli powder, garam masala, pepper powder, salt, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and cook until the veggies are cooked.
Put off flame and add lemon juice and chopped corainder leaves on top and mix.
Serve hot with Indian breads like chapathis and phulkas.
