Palak is easily available in all grocery stores, big or small. Fresh spinach cooked in a tablespoon of ghee is one of the most delicious green vegetables you could ever relish. You can add cottage cheese aka paneer also to it. I love spinach so much that I don’t need paneer to make it tastier. Spinach is low carb and is great for people who are deficient in iron. When you add cottage cheese, make sure you choose the full fat cottage cheese to ensure it has minimum carbs
They are my go to breakfast and sometimes dinner too. If I am short of time, so much so that 1 second delay can cause an earthquake :D, I put the eggs to boil while I finish my work.
P.S – The earthquake situation arises every day when I am late for work 😛

I like to call this “baingan ka bharta” .This is heavenly delicious <3. I prepare baingan ka bharta in mustard oil. I add chilies, a small onion and a big tomato to prepare one medium sized bowl of dish. I have it with curd, I have started drooling now.
I am not sure if the recipe of cheese sauce originated in India. Some Mexican herbs like oregano enhances the taste of cheese sauce, so the way I make this sauce, it is not completely Indian 😉 . The sauce needs common ingredients like cream, full fat milk (optional), cheese, butter and extra virgin olive oil. Oregano and basil can be used additionally. India has come a long way of being multi-cultural, these herbs are easily available nowadays. Please check out the recipe here.
This forms my snack and sometimes dinner too. I just soak moong daal for 2-3 hours before steaming it. Add chopped tomato, cucumber, onion(optional) , lemon juice , salt and chilli powder. Voila, salad is ready. I term this dish as “moong chaat” , just to pacify my mind that I am eating chaat . I wish we could make low carb chaats too 😀
