Is there something as Healthy Chips?

Is there something as Healthy Chips?

Kale is low in saturated fat and in cholesterol but high in protein and contains Vitamin E , thiamine, riboflavin and is high in dietary fiber!
This is the best and quickest way I have eaten Kale ever.

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
Place kale leaves in parchment paper on a baking pan
Drizzle olive oil , sprinkle some sea salt, red pepper flakes and garlic powder. I add some curry powder but of course!!!!
Take it out after 7 minutes and your outcome is Crisp Spicy Kale chips ! Enjoy with a dip like yogurt dip!

You can make and eat healthy chips in less than 10 minutes!!!!!

You can even add some minced garlic along with the kale before you place in the oven or even add some nuts like pine nuts or almonds for crunch!

If you dont want it to be spicy, you need not add the red pepper flakes:) and still enjoy Healthy Chips while watching a movie or a game!

Baked Cauliflower with Pecans, Caramelized Onions in a Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

20120504-165313.jpg

I received so much great feedback from my “Absolutely healthy Cauliflower dish” that it inspired me to make another one- this even better because of the coriander yogurt sauce.

The recipe is very similar but this time with a slight variation. I place the cauli florets in a baking pan along with Pecans and then sprinkle some salt, 2 tsp of turmeric, 1 tsp of chilli powder and 1 tsp cumin – coriander powder. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Heat a pan with oil, add chopped onions and 4-5 cloves garlic with salt and sauté till they caramelize. Transfer the toasted pecans and the florets on to the pan with Caramelized onions and garlic.
For the sauce, chop a bunch of coriander leaves/ cilantro and put it in a blender with yogurt. Blend to a smooth consistency and add salt to taste. Now transfer the green sauce to pan with cauliflower, onions and pecans. Plate and Enjoy!!!!! Absolutely healthy yet delicioussssss:)

Vegetable Fritters in a Spicy Yogurt Sauce

Vegetable Fritters in a Spicy Yogurt Sauce

One of the most humble dishes that tasted awesome was the (Punjabi Kadhi) or Vegetable Fritters in a Spicy Yogurt Sauce. I had never come across this dish until after our wedding. My husband was born and raised in the North of India and this dish was one of his favorites. Once when he had invited a group of his friends home for dinner, he wanted me to make this dish. I remember there was nothing left in the pan after they left! They loved it and I gave myself a pat on the back:)

I have tried this dish with several ingredients and have finally mastered a recipe with my variations and you can find it on my recipes section. I have mentioned a few tips and a few spices that I add to make this dish stand out from the others and taste Curryliciousssssssssss!
