Healthy Indian Recipes

If your food is full of flavour and is something you wish to reach out to, again and again, it definitely means there is something wrong with it. It is fattening, bloating or full of carbs. But that doesn’t have to be the case all the time!

Indian recipes are full of flavour and very healthy. Indian cuisine is one of the few cuisines that are capable of preparing recipes that are low on calories,  full of nutrients and taste.

Some of the recipes are extremely easy to prepare and can be prepared with items easily available in your kitchen.

Let us look at two Indian Recipes that are easy to prepare. Below are recipes that you can cook easily in your kitchen when you feel like experiencing a change of taste.

There is no way cooked cabbage can taste good. If that is what you think, you clearly haven’t eaten cabbage and moong dal or cabbage and chana dal sabzi. Cabbage is a vegetable and is full of vitamins and minerals.

Cabbage is also rich in Fiber. Pulses, on the other hand, are an excellent source of protein. Cooking them with oil and spices adds a good amount of fats and flavour to it. It is served with a Naan or plain Roti that serve as a source of rich complex carbohydrate.

Ingredient List:

  1. 2 cups chopped cabbage
  2. ½ cup moong or chana dal
  3. Veggies: 1 onion, 1 tomato, coriander leaves
  4. 2 tablespoons of oil of your choice
  5. 1 teaspoon each of the spices: red chilli powder, pure turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin seed powder, mustard seeds
  6. 2 to 3 teaspoons of the onion-garlic paste

How to make Cabbage and Pulses Sabji?

  1. Soak moong or chana daal for half an hour
  2. Chop all the veggies
  3. Heat the oil in a pan, keep the flame low to medium throughout
  4. Add mustard seeds to the oil and wait until they break
  5. Add chopped onions and wait until they turn translucent
  6. Add the onion-garlic paste and let it sit for a minute or two
  7. Add all the spices one by one and let it sit for a minute or two
  8. Add tomato and wait until it turns soft

  10. Cover it with a lid and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes, add water only if necessary
