sunrise salad with vegetable and cheese

Salads can be healthy, satisfying meals on their own or perfect accompaniments to main dishes. Whatever sort of salad they are perfect for your diet plans as well .
Even though it is not a very extraordinary salad but I just had to share this one with you. This weekend was a cool and rainy one. It is the kind of weather that It even had me toying with the idea of hot chocolate, but that’s a whole other story. One look outside at the overcast sky, and you just can’t say no to a big bowl of creamy soup and a bowl full of nutritious salad with load of fiber and protein and goodness of cheddar cheese, and all kinds of good stuff. This salad is designed to a perfect day start.

This is my first time making this salad, but it is already becoming one of my favorites that I know I will be making time and time again this year. The peppers add a spicy, smoky taste, and the cheese mellows out all of the flavors. This is a curd based creamy salad ,also great for diet plans.  I like to top salad bowl with a little more cheese and thinly sliced nuts and serve it up with some warm, crusty bread croutons .

Ingredient are very simple just dig out your fridge and use all possible vegetables like ..cabbage, carrot, peas, corn, baby corn , mushrooms, potatoes, spinach and all other possible vegetables which you want to use and ya I love to use pasta in my salads you can too.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting. My dietitian sugges…

Gur chana / jaggery coated roasted chickpeas

Very tasty, crunchy yet healthy snack for kids, full of protein . I often make this crunchy delight for munching. 
 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
This recipe is from my mother in law's cook book , my mom In law was an excellent cook and being a panjabi, her excellency was panjabi cuisine. She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
