When I was planning for the ladoo theme, I wanted to make all the three for myself as a paleo treat, but because of some failure in baking, I ended up making one for Sruti and her friends. I hope you read about it yesterday. But the next two are paleo / low carb recipes which you can enjoy. Being on a low carb diet doesn’t mean that you need to eat tasteless dishes. Any person who asks me about my diet has this doubt. That I am eating some boring food as if there are no options for tasty food in my diet. Sometimes I try to explain but most of the time I let them think that my food is bland. It is so tough to make them understand. But I guess as my readers you might not have the doubt. Look at my Vegetarian Paleo Recipes page to know how amazing my diet is.
Making a savoury ladoo i such an easy work. Almost all my recipes are easy to make and I end up with the final dish within 5 – 10 minutes of starting. As the recipes are very less in carbs, the major problem you face is with the binding. If you eat eggs, then it won’t be a problem, but for those who don’t even consume eggs, it becomes a problem. There are some ingredients which help with the binding such as isabgol, coconut flour, cheese. Isabgol and cheese can really help you in savoury recipes, but most of the time, you won’t have isabgol at home. At those instances, you can use mozzarella or cheddar in the recipe. In a low carb diet, that too if you don’t have eggs, you will surely have cheese blocks in your fridge. So go ahead and use it.
Makes 5 Ladoos
Paneer – 100 gm
Ghee – 1/2 tsp
Red Chilly Powder – 1/4 tsp
Spring Oniions – 2-3 tbs
Salt – to taste
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – 3 tbs
In a pan heat ghee and add crumbled paneer.
Add in red chilly powder, spring onions and salt and saute on low flame until the raw smell is gone.
Remove it from flame and add cheese.
The heat from the paneer is sufficient to melt the cheese.
Once warm, make balls out of the mixture and serve immediately.
