Paruppu Keerai Chapathi/Chapathi with Dal & Greens

Hello friends,

Today I am going to share a very interesting chapathi made with dal and greens. The choice of greens is totally your’s, I have used araikeerai to make this chapathi. I always come across one problem when packing lunch, my husband and elder daughter prefer to have rice for lunch and my little one always will prefer to have chapathis or rotis etc. Whenever I make paruppu keerai masiyal or any other green varieties my little daughter never has it during lunch, and I used to feel very bad about it. But then whenever I make paruppu keerai during weekdays for lunch, I blend the prepared keerai and make chapathis for her. But for my husband and elder daughter I make rice, mix this dal and prepare some vegetables and pack the lunch. I think lot of moms must be coming across this kind of problem when packing lunch for your whole family, but when you go by my idea you will feel happy and satisfied. One best part of it is your kid will eat all the chapathis and she/he will get the greens also. Meanwhile friends, do not forget to check out other interesting and delicious breakfastvarieties here.

Ponnanganni Keerai Poriyal – Simple & Healthy Keerai Poriyal

Ponnanganni Keerai is called as “Dwarf Copperleaf” in English, is a green variety available throughout the year. The name “Ponnanganni” means glow like gold. It is loaded with iron, calcium and other vital nutrients that make our hair and skin glow. When Ponnanganni is taken for a period of 48 days regularly, it heals our body of all kinds of deficiency and reduces the body heat, as it is an excellent body coolant. Ponnanganni is specifically recommended for eye ailments, asthma, gonorrhoea, syphilis. Most of them avoid these types of greens, because they do not know how to cook them or to use them. A very simple ponnanganni keerai poriyal/stir fry included twice or thrice a week in our diet is a wonderful remedy to stay healthy. Ponnanganni oil/thailam is very famous in Tamil Nadu and is used for treating headaches and also for treating excessive body heat during the summer months. For now friends I am going to share this Ponnanganni Keerai poriyal, do try it for sure and post your comments.

Spinach Kofta Curry/Palak Kofta Curry- Healthy Microwave Spinach/Palak Kofta Curry

Today I am going to share a very healthy version of Spinach/Palak Kofta curry. The koftas are not fried in oil; rather they are cooked in microwave which reduces the calorie content. As the koftas are made in microwave, they retain the colour and also taste great. I came across this delicious and creamy recipe in Nisha Madhulikas, but I made some variations in the gravy and it was a big hit in my family. Feed your family with this healthy spinach kofta without any guilt. Do try out this kofta gravy and post your comments.
