23 ratings

Here is a portion controlled plate that you can make again for your weekday Lunch. In this wholesome meal we have included a simple Methi Pakora Kadhi, Beetroot Poriyal, Kabuli Chana & Raw Mango Salad, Mixed Millet Phulka & Cucumber & Onion Raita. 

Methi Pakora Kadhi is a simple and refreshing curry that can be prepared for summer season. This will keep your palate light. The addition of methi leaves into the pakora is a healthy option and also the pakoras are crisped in a kuzhi paniyaram which is made with less oil. 

The Beetroot poriyal is a wonderful way to add a vegetable into your diet. The poriyal has less spice and is just sautéed with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. A sprinkle of just salt is added into the poriyal to bring out the actual flavour of the vegetable. Beetroot is rich in Iron and antioxidants. It is also rich in folic acid and is important to be added into a pregnancy diet.

Our meal plates are always accompanied by a salad to keep the nutrients fresh. We have made white Chickpeas, raw mango & Cucumber salad. The chickpeas are rich in protein and also contain good amount of dietary fibre.

We have also made it diabetic friendly by adding a Mixed millet phulka, which is rich in fibre, Vitamins and Iron. The millets will help in regulating the blood sugar level due to its low glycemic Index. Finally a cup of freshly cut vegetable raita is added to keep it light and refreshing. 

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