Drumstick Soup

You know it’s all abt moringa now a days. I keep a bag of moringa seeds at work and offering every one who wants to try. Today 1 of the colleague came back to take more seeds. I remembered morninga again and so decided to make for dinner. I made kind of Indian curry but I realized you can throw them in any soup you make . And I think it will taste great in minestrone soup.

Moringa pod or drumstick looks like bone , don’t they? No wonder they are rich in calcium. Try it out.


Side Dish Is Important

Picture is bad .. I know but it will serve the purpose. We all have our favorite food and food that we grew up eating. Most of the ppl think that what we grew up eating was so healthy. Well, let’s not go into that today.

Dosa With chutney is favorite among us Indians and easy, quick to make . To make it a well rounded meal, I added some steamed broccoli on the side . Takes 3 mins to steam and adds a lots of wonderful things. Sprinkle some salt and fresh lemon juice .

Dosa or pancake is made with mixture of brown rice and different dals. Soak it for 3-4 hrs , grind, add salt and cumin seeds. Batter ready. I soaked it before leaving for yoga class . Come home after few hrs and i can grind .

Roasted raw peanuts in toaster oven and made some peanut chutney. Oven roasted peanuts taste really good and it’s so easy to roast. Try if you have never done.

Easy breezy well rounded lunch. You can also roast cauliflower in oven for a side dish. Roasted cauliflower tastes good too. Or any seasonal vegetables. Roast or steam. Some taste good roasted and some steamed. Find what you like and what works for you.


Dhebra Hummus Sandwich

Dhebra is gujarati bread made with pearl millet and wheat flour adding some methi leaves , curd and spices. Instead of deep frying I just roast them on skillet. From the left over I made hummus sandwich. Very simple. No need of recipe. Spread hummus , put some tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, mango , lettuce whatever you have . Sprinkle salt and pepper . Yum !

You can make baby ones too if you make small dhebra. Looks cute and easy to eat. Or make big dhebra which will be hard because millet doesn’t have gluten so hard to roll big. Let’s stick with baby ones.😀

Be creative . You can use thepla too. I prefer dhebra over breads , tortillas. You can also cut dhebras in triangle to eat with hummus instead of pita. Enough ideas with dhebra. How are you gonna eat them ?
