add all the above mentioned things to make patties or tikkis and shallow fry them
Have them with ketchup or make chaat by adding yogurt and tamarind chutney.
Brown Rice Salad
I have a taken a cup of long grain brown basmati rice.Soak it overnight to reduce cooking time. Take a pan add a spoon of oil , add bay leaves , cloves and cardamom. And then add rice and cook.
Take veggies of your choice. I have taken red bell pepper, snow peas, spinach, cherry tomatoes, red onions, green chillies, grated carrots
take a mason jar. add minced garlic, lemon juice, honey, dijon mustard, salt, black pepper, and olive oil. Give it a good shake.
After the rice is done add all the veggies and finally the dressing. Add chopped almond to give the salad a nice crunch
Kidney Beans/ Razma Wrap
Wash and soak razma overnight. Boil it a next day. Remove the water and mash it with a hand masher. Take a pot. Add 1 tbsp oil. Add cumin and asfaoetida. Once it crackles add garlic and green chillies. After garlic turn a bit brown add onion and spinach and let them cook for 2-3 minutes. Now put the spices – cumin powder, turmeric, corainder powder, paprika, 1 tbsp ketchup and finally add the mashed beans.Let it cook for 4-5 minutes. Stuffing is ready now.
I have used spinach whole wheat Tortilla. You can make spinach Roti or Paratha . I have shown it in my healthy lunch box ideas video. Warm the Tortilla a bit . Put some hummus. You can use garlic chilly chutney , green chutney if you dont have hummus. after that put some greens , add stuffing to it. and for the dressing take some curd/yogurt add grated carrots and black peppers to it. and put it on top of stuffing. and now roll the wrap.
