Previously I would buy only the Beet-root without the greens. After seeing Asha’s Dal saag recipe, I was inspired to buy Beet greens along with the Beetroot. Thanks Asha for the inspiration….
For the little wonders
Some very good reasons prompted me to make this cake:
#- I found dried Orange flavoured Cranberries in the supermarket here. I had never tasted Cranberries before. Many people here don’t even know what are Cranberries. I was one of them! But I am very experimentive with my cooking and hence grabbed the packets of Dried Cranberries as soon as I saw them. ( that too at an offer I couldn’t resist1 pk. Free with the other! J) …
Spices are a way of life in India as far as food is considered! A variety of spices are skillfully blended in Indian cuisine not only for the flavor they impart to any dish but also for their health benefits….
Still no respite from the incessant rains here! After a break of exactly 1 & ½days, Mr.Monsoon has reported back to work.
I follow a food routine during this season:
1.This is the season, when I indulge in my favourite fries, bhajjis, samosas etc.. to brighten(???) these wet ,gloomy, lazy days( that’s my excuse)….
Fresh leafy vegetables are my weakness and I can’t resist the temptation of buying them whenever I go veggie shopping . Methi (Fenugreel) is loved by everyone at home even the little ones.The best thing one can easily make with a bunch of Methi leaves is Parathas.
In spite of it’s bitter taste, the innumerable health benefits of Methi leaves, makes it one of the most healthy greens recommended by dietitians,Moms and grandmothers alike.
This is a basic recipe with easily available ingredients in most pantries. You can also add some garlic -ginger paste to spice it up.The soy/oats and gram flour amp up the health quotient. You can use ready mixed multigrain flour too
Methi parathas make for a great Lunch box meal or a handy on the go snack. Serve them with your favorite pickle,chutney or curd.
