Paneer Palak Koftas in Makhani GravyPaneer Palak Koftas in Makhani Gravy

Not everyone is fond of bottle gourd but this Bharwa Lauki will surely make you fall in love with it. The lauki is stuffed with protein and calcium packed paneer which gives it a rich taste, the smooth tomato gravy will add to its rich texture and also the antioxidant lycopene. Rajasthani Style Kaddu Aur Soya ki Subzi is a healthy alternative to the traditional starchy recipe that uses potato. The pumpkins in it not only add to the taste but also give it a nice colour because of beta-carotene which has many health benefits. Another protein packed and low cholesterol recipe is Matki Aur Palak ki Curry which is also high in fibre, vitamin A, thiamine, folic acids, calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus. So much to ask for in a single recipe!
