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

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Ingredients:


 2 cups ....roasted.chickpeas
Gur/Jaggery, Grated,  ¾ cup ( adjust as per taste)


Instructions:

Dry roast the pre roasted chickpeas in a non stick skillet or microwave oven and let cool. 

Melt gur in a non stitck pan on a low flame and let it come to a boil. You will know it’s done once it kind of starts pulling away from the edges. 

Add roasted chickpeas and mix well for a couple of minutes till the gur has coated the chickpeas completely on all sides ,sprinkle a little water in it so that jaggery coated nicely on chickpeas. ( do not add too much of water )
Stir continuously do not leave otherwise it will over cook or burn.
If the mixture in the pan becomes hard in the meanwhile, reheat again at a low flame. Separate them , Let them cool and store in an airtight container.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth .....it 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!

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

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 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.

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…
