A no-cook, no-bake healthy treat, chia mango pudding can be prepared the night before and had for breakfast. A true blessing on rushed mornings.
Chia seeds are tiny powerhouses of nutrition – they are packed with protein, fibre, Omega-3 fatty acids and other micronutrients. They are also filling and, since they absorb water, they make you feel thirsty nudging you to increase your water intake.
Peanut butter in smoothies is all the rage and I have been thinking that some of us might not want to invest in a full jar of peanut butter just for the occasional smoothie. At least in India, peanut butter isn’t a regular in most households – it is expensive and not available in smaller grocery stores.
Is there an alternative? You are in luck – I have a happy solution for you.
I wanted to make a paneer dish taste close to ‘paneer butter masala’ that we get in Indian restaurants. Here is what I came up with. This rich curry is a great hit with paneer lovers, something you can happily serve at a party.
A healthy fresh fruit preparation that you can serve as a snack or an after-meal dessert.
Traditional rabri can be pretty heavy with its high content of sugar and condensed milk. Its usual pairing with malpua and jalebi (while delicious!) doesn’t help either if you’re watching your weight. Enter my recipe of fresh fruit rabri – the best sort of dessert to satiate your sweet tooth even on a healthy diet. No refined sugar, no tinned condensed milk –this rabri is sweetened only with natural nutrient-rich dates and apricots. No canned fruit either – only wholesome seasonal stuff.
