You wouldn’t have to necessarily fry your papad if you are a little health conscious, roasting it gives an equally good outcome. Smother it with some sprouts, finely chopped onions, tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, green chillies, coriander, and sprinkle some salt and pepper. For adding a hint of tanginess, add some juice of a lemon and garnish alongside some mint chutney.
Cottage Cheese Balls
There’s rarely ever a time when we are short of cottage cheese a.k.a. paneer. So, how about giving the traditional pakoras a little twist and making a modern version of cottage cheese balls. All you need to do is layer the paneer with some spices like pepper, red chilli powder, salt, and chaat masala and coat it with a layer of cornflour paste and bread crumbs. You can either choose to deep fry the cottage cheese or shallow fry on a flat pan. Serve it with some tomato ketchup or coriander dip.
Wheat Banana Pancakes
No matter what age group you belong to, pancakes are something we all love. So, why not make a healthier version for your family or friends by replacing all-purpose flour with wheat. Add an egg, castor sugar, vanilla essence, one mashed banana, milk, and a pinch of baking powder. Blend the ingredients well and make tiny pancakes, which can be garnished with Nutella, ice cream, or peanut butter.
Sandwiches are not just healthy but extremely filling. And the best part? They do not require a lot of ingredients or time. This unique sandwich needs nothing more than mayonnaise, sandwich bread, carrot, and cucumber. Prepare a dip with mayonnaise, pepper, garlic, salt, and red chilli flakes. Spread it on the bread and top it up with vegetables of your choice. Have it instantly or grill the sandwich if you like it so.
Baked Potato Chips
We all love our potato wedges and French fries but the guilt of it being deep-fried and unhealthy pops in! But how about having it in a baked form? Sounds good, right? Thinly slice the potatoes in a circular shape, sprinkle it over with some salt and pepper, and let it bake until brown and crispy. Have it while it’s hot and serve it with hot and sweet tomato sauce. Voila!
