Let’s start the week on a healthy note with this yummy but nutritious dinner of soothing Pumpkin Soup and sumptuous Bajra, Carrot and Onion Uttapa. The Pumpkin Soup is a low-calorie delight with a very elegant, soul-warming flavour.
The Bajra Carrot and Onion Uttapa is a unique adaptation of the famous Uttapa, made with soaked and cooked bajra and bajra flour, perked up with veggies and ingredients like green chillies and coriander that perk up its flavour.
Bajra, Carrot and Onion Uttapa
The batter for this Uttapa does not require fermentation, however you have to remember to soak the bajra ahead and also provide for the pressure-cooking time. This tasty snack can be served with healthy green chutney to make a wholesome dinner.
Garlic Cheese Naan, Tava Naan Without Yeast
Tuesday is just the right day to pamper yourself and your family with a flavourful dinner of Garlic Cheese Naan and Paneer Pasanda. The Garlic Cheese Naan is an interesting Indian bread, with a pungent, cheesy taste and authentic texture.
However, it is quite easy to make – it does not require yeast and is cooked on a tava, making it simple enough to make on any day.
Paneer Pasanda Sabzi, Restaurant Style Paneer Pasanda
The Paneer Pasanda is an equally rich delight, with a spicy flavour and creamy mouth-feel. They are quite apt to serve together.
