I love lemon rice so much and have been missing it so much. The best part is the crunchy channa dhal which adds so much to the texture and taste. As I can’t use channa dhal, I used some pistachios for the crunch. The tangy lemon flavoured the paneer so nicely. And the curry leaves and mustard seeds made it taste authentic. Again this is one of the simplest of all recipes and I love it so much. Whenever I crave for some lemon rice, I make this with paneer and have a hearty meal.

When I started eating eggs a few weeks back, I used to boil them and gulp them because I was not having them for taste but to complete my macros. But then I really got bored of eating boiled eggs and I started looking for other options. I still don’t like them, I still hate the smell but I don’t have a choice until I reach my goal weight. One recipe which has the least egg smell is this scramble. Before learning this type of scramble, we used to make one with lots of onions and my hubby used to love it. But I hated that too. When I first saw this scramble in a video, I wanted to try it immediately. The reason is it is quite simple to make and the fluffy texture surely looked inviting. The addition of cream is what conceals the eggy taste and gives a nice creamy flavour to the scramble. And you need to keep on stirring the mixture with a fork and never let it set into a omelette. By doing that you will be rewarded with the fluffiest egg scramble.
After a week full of paneer recipes, here is to a week for easy breezy recipes with eggs. As I am doing a month long BM as protein as the theme, I have chose to post protein rich recipes all this month. These recipes are also paleo friendly and these are my day to day dishes for more than seven months. I had some home made feta cheese and I paired it with a simple egg omelette. As it was home made it was not too salty, so I added salt to the eggs. But if you are using store bought feta cheese, you can completely skip adding salt as the cheese itself is too salty. The omelette tasted good with the cheese on top. I served it along with some carrots and green chutney for a filling lunch.
When I started with the diet I was so sure that I couldn’t taste any of my favourite dishes, especially the Indo Chinese ones which needed deep frying and all those sweet sauces. But after I made the red chilly sauce and green chilly sauce without sugar, I felt that I could even make some of my favourites with proper planning. I did some necessary changes in the recipe and made my favourite manchurian with paneer. You need to trust me, the flavour was perfect and we didn’t miss the deep frying part or the batter coating at all. The flavour depends so much on the sauce. So if you make it right, then you would nail the dish. Take a look at home made paleo friendly my red chilly sauce and green chilly sauce. I have given the links below. If you have the sauces in your fridge, then the dish takes very less time to make. And it is totally delicious and a filling meal.
This is one dish that reminds me of my chat days. I used to love chat and whenever we go for outing, we make sure to have a chat of any type. But it has been a long time since I had any chat, I think it is 8 months now. So just to satisfy my craving I add some chat masala to dishes which gives a real satisfaction. That is what I did to paneer that day when I was craving for a chat. As I am too strict about carbs, I try to avoid even onions on daily basis, but still have them once in a while. If you can’t have your chat without onions, then add some chopped onions on top of the paneer and enjoy. And also go for green chutney too. I wanted to have it as a crispy treat so I didn’t add any chutney here. But I added some dried rosemary for a little bit of twist in the flavour.
