Every dinner needs to end on a good note. As it is the last meal of your day and it should be light as well as help you satisfy your hunger. The meal has to be quick that can be made during the weeknight as well as nutritious. We have plated up a completely home made dinner meal that will end your day on a happy note. We have created for you a dinner plate with good ingredients put together which will not make you feel heavy before you hit the bed.
In this week's dinner plate, we have put across an innovative version of Khichdi made with brown rice and Palak. Brown rice has more fiber and protein content when compared to white rice and so is a healthier option. And the addition of palak into your khichdi will help in increasing your fiber content as well. A typical vadi which is made popularly in the region of Maharashtra is paired with the Palak khichdi so that there will be some crunchy element to the whole meal.
In today's Dinner plate we have :
1. Palak Khichdi with Brown Rice and Toasted Peanut Recipe
A variation to the usual preparation of khichdi from both rice and lentil. The khichdi not just has the protein and carbs from the rice and dal but also the addition of Palak or Spinach into the Khichdi will provide enough Iron content. The toasted peanuts will not just give the crunch to the khichdi but also up your protein content.
