Non-fried Protein Rich Starters

Deep fried tikkis are loved by one and all at snack time. But excess fat can be a welcome factor for many other diseases. Try using a non-stick tava to enjoy all those tikkis, kebabs and cutlets you love to indulge into. 

Groundnut TikkisHara Bhara Kebabs and Chana Dal and Cabbage Tikki are a few examples of such protein rich snacks. These snacks can easily be made in your kitchen using a non-stick tava. Try them with a chutney of your choice and you will never be disappointed. Just a bit of effort and you will have a nourishing fare on your table to begin your meal that’s healthy for your bones and body both.

Protein Rich Jar Snacks

A lot people rely on jar snacks as they are their best friend when they are utmost hungry and not in a mood to cook as well. Again avoid the fried option, as most jar snacks are also deep-fried. Prefer a non-stick tava for these snacks too… So when you have time on hand, do your preparations and in full spirits make them and store them in air-tight containers. 

Nachni Sesame Khakhra and Palak Jeera Nimki are flavorsome ideas to try your hand at. The khakhras are famous Gujarati snack. Each khakhra provides 2.1 g of protein. The Nimki is a famous Bengali snack which is made with refined maida and usually deep-fried. This healthy Nimki is an attempt to help you with healthy protein rich jar snack option. It is made with whole wheat flour and 1 cup of Nimki provides 6.6 g of protein, though ½ cup is enough as a snack.

Protein Rich Egg Recipes

Eggs are considered to be one of the healthiest option to indulge in by those who are ova-vegetarians. One egg gives approx. 6.7 g of protein. This is highly nourishing for the body cells – for the maintenance of existing cells and for the growth of new cells too. But again remember though you may find fried egg as the most sumptuous option, you need to surpass that habit and turn to a wholesome option like Veg Patty with Eggs and Oats. And, of course, the traditional Egg Bhurji cannot be tossed out from this protein rich fare list also.

Protein Filled Wraps

Wraps are filling cooking ideas which serve the purpose of one dish meal. What you need to make an appetizing wrap is a roti, a spread and a filling. Now the maida based roti can easily be replaced with whole wheat option. The trick you need to learn is the spread and the most important is the filling. For filling, choose veggies and sprouts. Try and use a variety of sprouts like bean sproutsmoong sproutsAlfa-Alfat Sprouts, chana sprouts and so on. We have tried creating 2 healthy protein rich wraps for you – Bean Sprouts and Veggie Wrap and Methi and Moong Sprouts Wrap.
