I have been trying to adapt myself to a whole new World of vegetables and fruits here in India that I am not too familiar with. I have found that here in South India rice is a staple food, and quite frankly that doesn’t work for my body for some reason. I gain massive amounts of weight and I don’t want that anymore than the next person. So, I have been trying to work with ingredients and find new ways to eat healthier. This following recipe is a favorite of mine because it has lots of veggies and its very good with dosa, chapathi, parota, roti, naan you name it. I just don’t eat with rice often.
2 small very ripe red tomatoes diced
2 stalks of green onion/spring onion chopped
1/2 cup of dry roasted peanuts (no fat added or salt)
2 green bell peppers/capsicum 1 diced and 1 sliced into strips to dip with
4 carrots: 1 carrot diced thin and 1 sliced into strips to dip with.
Optional: 1/4 cup cabbage; some kind of roti or Indian bread; the veggie sticks I always eat because we could all use more veggies!
2 cups of Indian Curd or Greek Yogurt
1 tsp salt
a dash of black pepper
Combine all ingredients diced together, salt and pepper, curd/yogurt well.
Total Cooking Time: 15 minutes
