Mid-afternoon or evening snack is something that I end up not planning for at all! Somehow planning for breakfast, lunch or dinner takes up so much time or effort that there is hardly any time left to think of something for the evening. Unfortunately, what I realize is that I end up munching on whatever is available! So much for careful eating 🙁 So I have been deliberately putting some thought into what I can have in the evenings when I get home – something quick and fast that does not require a ton of work! If you are looking for some ideas – try having some fresh fruit or a quick south Indian kosambari (check out Sprouted Fenugreek seeds and raw mango kosambari and Southekayi hasi sasive(cucumber in coconut-mustard sauce)) or a masala papad or try this awesome sprouts salad/usli/sundal 🙂
Slightly late in posting my Diabetic Friendly Recipe for the week! But I have a really awesome recipe that is super simple and tastes amazing 🙂 Cutlets/patties without potatoes and using a unique combination of veggies.
Khaman Dhokla is an Indian steamed savory cake made using chickpea flour/gram flour/besan. It is one quick, healthy treat that is loved by all! It is one of those classic dishes like Indian samosas. There a ton of variants and recipes already up on the internet for a lot of khaman dhokla recipes and other variants! But this is my take on it. I figured it had to feature on my blog since I make it practically every time I am hungry and want something super quick. There are a couple of pros and cons of using microwave to prepare dhokla. For the plus points – it is really easy, quick and is a great way to stay away from junk food when you are super hungry! On the other hand, like most quick shortcuts to Indian food, using a microwave just does not give the same texture as steaming the dhokla. That being said I still love this recipe 😀
