Its been really really long since i posted anything.

Life;s been terribly busy with my daughter growing up and demanding more and more attention. I miss being on my blog, but now again my motivation is up high and would want to take time out for my blog.

Food has been a little off list lately with the increasing waist line :(

I need to come up with more healthy low cal options now on :)

One of it is ...


My dad eats fada (wheat grain) khichdi , he says its good for weight loss :) so i tried making burgers out of it. In case u dont get this u could use Bulgur wheat.
Half cup wheat grain soaked over night and then cooked in a rice cooker or pressure cooker just like rice.
Mixed veggies of ur choice (try to steam them rather than boil to retain the nutrition)
1 boiled mashed potato.
Dry spices.
Once ur wheat grain is cooked mix in all the boiled veggies and potato. Mix it well enough and add all the dry spices like salt, red chilli, garam masala, mango powder. As we have used less of potato we need more binding to add about a tablespoon of wheat flour and mix well and make patties. Roast them on a non-stick with or without oil. If using oil try using olive oil... it sure changes the flavour.
Now to assemble the burger you will need Wheat buns, lettuce, Thinly sliced tomatoes, onions, cheese slice, and thousand island dressing.(if u don't have thousand island dressing just mix mayo with some tomato ketchup and use that as ur sauce)
Grill the buns and assemble the burger with the above ingredients :)

For those who are not counting calories serve these with sauted herbed potatoes.
I used pre cut ribbed fries.
Mixed dried herbs.
Chilli flakes
In a non stick add about 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter, add the mixed herbs and ur chopped fries, mix well and add let them cook for about 3 to 4 min, then add chilli flakes and season with salt :)
serve hot!!
