This recipe is dedicated to all the men and women who are busy taking care of their jobs, household and loved ones. Many a times I have seen women (mostly in India) who have a long scheduled day but hardly a few minutes for themselves. In this rush everyone tends to eat or grab a bite of whatever is available and most of the times it is the greasy fast food that becomes are first choice. In a way I have also been a part of this mad rush.
I firmly believe that there are recipes or ways to prepare many on the go dishes in a matter of max 10-15 minutes. (Oh noo..not ata Maggie!! ;)).
Here is another recipe that I believe can be prepared before you go to office and begin you hectic day. It can be power packed breakfast or a mood lifting lunch after a boring meeting or a tasty snack after you come back home. Full of nutrients and easy to carry too.
I really hope that after trying this you will say bye to the unhealthy take aways.
Let’s wrap it up and start cooking!!
Onion (small) – 1 finely chopped
Tomato (small) – finely chopped
Chapatis – 4-5
Paneer/ Cottage cheese – 200 gms
Salt –to taste
Garam Masala – 1 teaspoon
Chilli Powder – ½ teaspoon
Coriander springs – to serve
Any vegetable Oil – 1 tablespoon
Mustard Seeds – ½ teaspoon
- Crumble the paneer and keep aside.
- In a pan heat oil and add mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds crackle add onion and sauté. Then add the tomatoes, garam masala and chilli powder. Sauté till the tomatoes are done.
- Add the crumbled paneer and salt. Mix well.
- Let it cook on a medium flame for 3-4 minutes.
- Warm the chapatis, then spoon the cooked paneer onto a chapatti and top it with few springs of coriander. Add extra chopped onion if you wish.
- Ask everyone to help themselves: fill, roll and eat!
- Instead of using paneer you many use tofu.
- If chapatti or roti is not easily available then try pita bread or flour tortillas.
- This makes a great snack for children. Adjust or eliminate the chilli powder accordingly.
