Grilled Paneer Salad

Grilled Paneer Salad  

Holi is just over. We enjoyed good number of gujjiyas and other sweets. Now is the time to shed extra kilos that we added during festival times. For this I prepared this salad having paneer and lots of vegetables grilled, warn, seasoned with a little bit of pepper, salt and lemon juice giving it very nice soothing flavour.

All the veggies are having their own crispiness and own taste and topped it with grilled paneer giving nice body to the salad making it filling, added walnuts to get nutty taste. This is very colorful and when you will serve this to your friends and family it will give the feel of a plush restaurant serving. This will ensure no weight addition also...

Cheese Toast

Cheese Toast  

Every morning we have the same dilemma - what to cook for breakfast or snacks or dinner. Our kids prefer mostly unhealthy though tasty options. Whereas we parents would like to avoid and serve them better options. So now we have a new idea, where we can offer them similar taste, similar looks but a healthy and nutritious version of pizza, with minimum changes.

Changes like crust of pizza gets replaced by  brown bread; seasoning of vegetables normally avoided by children; hygiene of home and love of mumma. So serve this to your kids, friends and party lovers and get their love and affection by being conscious of their health.

Preparation Time : 10 Min

Cooking Time : 10 Min

Ingredients : 

  • 4 Bread slices (I prefer brown bread)
  • 4 Tablespoon Pizaa cheese (grated)
  • 1 Tablespoon jalapeno (chopped)
  • 2 Tablespoon chopped onion 
  • 2 Tablespoon chopped bell pepper
  • 2 Tablespoon butter
Procedure : 
  • Finish cutting and chopping
  • In a bowl take grated cheese, onions, jalapeƱo and bell pepper and mix well

  • Take a bread slice, apply butter on it

  • Take a pan, heat it, toast bread on it, now apply butter on the other side then turn the slice. Add cheese mixture on bread and cover the pan with lid and cook it on slow flame till the cheese gets melted

  • Remove the lid and take out the cheese slice.

  • Repeat the same steps with rest of the slices 

  • Sprinkle some chilly flakes and oregano and enjoy .....

Tip : 
  • Cook this on slow flame
