We all have our favorite everyday recipes and these recipes have proven to be as quick – easy – nutritious and comforting family choices. But then they become a little tired and boring after a certain time. So why not cook the same dish, substituting a key ingredient or add some new spices or flavorings. I think none of these costs much – in either time or money and yet can give a whole new dimension to the finished dish and your family a totally new culinary delight :).
Thus, I tried transforming one of our traditional dishes into a modern Indian food. It’s just a delicious combination of sweet veggies with tart pieces of bread with minimal spice – yes it just worked though it may not sound much.
Recipe for quick bread & vegetable stir-fry
3 slices of bread, lightly toasted until hard but not colored, crusts removed
1tbsp natural yogurt (slightly sour if possible) or you can use Greek yogurt
1/4tsp mustard seeds
1 onion, finely sliced
1 potato, peeled and chopped into cubes
1 green chili, chopped or slit
1 carrot, peeled and grated into long shreds
¼ red or white cabbage, cored and finely shredded
1 tsp ginger paste
1 or 2 tsp of lemon juice
2tbsp of chopped cilantro
Add onion and potato and fry over a moderate heat until golden.
Variations: You could use wholemeal bread to get a nutty flavor.
Happy Weekend :)!!
