Bombay Curry Soup is a sumptuous soup with a desi flavour. With dal and rice, it is quite filling and can be served as a quick snack or a meal-in-a-bowl. This unique soup is made by cooking dal with garlic, spice powders and tomatoes, straining the cooked mixture, and boiling the liquid till it thickens. The curry powder used to flavour the dal gives this soup a very exciting flavour, while a dash of lemon juice gives it a refreshing tanginess, which energizes your taste buds! The Bombay Curry Soup is served in a unique style with a garnish of rice, which makes it very satiating and comforting.

Millets are wonder foods – our very own, local super foods! Apart from being treasure troves of nutrition, they all have some exclusive benefits too. If you take millets like bajra and nachni, they keep our system warm in the winters and help absorb nutrients and build muscle tissue. Here is a wonderfully tasty and equally easy way to consume bajra. The Bajra Khichdi with Green Moong Dal is a comforting one-dish meal, which you can serve for lunch or dinner. It has a great mouth-feel, and the combo of bajra with green moong dal also has a very good taste. Although the tempering is extremely simple, the ghee and jeera give it a very appetizing aroma and homely flavour. It tastes so nice that you can just serve it with curd. If you wish to add some excitement to the healthy meal, serve it with papad and pickle along with curds. Enjoy how to make Bajra Khichdi with Green Moong Dal recipe with detailed step by step photos below.

Life can be tough without comforting khichdi to keep you company! One of the homeliest of meals, khichdi is satiating and soothing to the palate. Here’s an innovative twist, we have used fibre-rich barley to make this khichdi. A good replacement for rice, barley combines very well with moong dal and mild spices to create a comfort food that keeps you satiated for a long time due to its high fibre content. Apart from curbing cholesterol, barley also helps control weight gain. To this effect, we have also avoided ghee and used heart-friendly olive oil instead. Have this easy-to-make Barley and Moong Dal Khichdi with a bowl of low-fat curds, to make a light but wholesome One Dish Meals .

Chana dal in addition to protein provides a good source of iron and fibre while cucumber, added to enhance the flavours, contributes minimal calories and no fat to your diet. Serve hot with rice or chapatis to square up your meal.

Startling though it may seem, here is a wonderful and healthy modification of the famous festive Gujarati dish which is ordinarily loaded with oil. I've changed this recipe and cut down on the oil along with the invisible fat which you get from coconut. The methi muthias added to this recipe are baked to a wonderful rich golden brown colour that are very appealing and also cut down a lot of the calories you get in the fried version. A good amount of iron and calcium is available from this hearty dish and this is sure to become your family favourite.
Name the texture, name the flavour, and you are sure to find it in this exciting salad. From cucumber for a juicy crunch, and kabuli chana for a mealy touch, to barley and mushrooms for chewiness and sun-dried tomatoes for tang, this Salads features a wide assortment of ingredients, further enhanced with a tongue-tickling dressing of peppy vinegar, refreshing lemon juice and olive oil – which does the balancing act. Enjoy the Chick Pea, Mushroom and Barley Salad with Balsamic Dressing chilled, to relish an exciting crunch and to avoid sogginess.
