Portion Control Meal Plate: Chironji Ki Dal, Tofu Bhurji, Kulcha And Salad

24 ratings

We have a delicious Portion Control Meal Plate which is healthy and very nutritious. This meal plate includes Chironji Ki Dal, Tofu Bhurji, Carrot And Cucumber Salad, Tawa Amritsari Kulcha and a bowl of Curd.

Chironji Ki Dal is a delicious recipe where chironji seeds are soaked and then ground into paste to form a dal and then it is cooked with okra/bhindi. Nutritious and tasty, this dal is perfect for your weekday meals. Along with this Dal, we have Tofu Bhurji, in which scrambled tofu is cooked along with everyday spices. Also, it is good to include Tofu in our everyday meals, as it is high in protein. 

To complete the meal plate, we have Carrot Cucumber Salad, Tawa Amritsari Kulcha and a bowl of Curd. Addition of a salad makes your meal more nutritious and filling and curd helps you to digest your food. 

Tips For Portion Control: You can add a phulka or a small portion of rice instead of Tawa Amritsari Kulcha. If you want to avoid both, you can increase the quantity of dal, sabzi and salad. You can also make a raita by adding your favourite vegetable, as it is a good way to include it in your diet. 

Below are the quantities we have used for a complete portion control meal. You can use these suggestions based on your dietary requirements.
