Gobi Sandwich



These Gobi sandwiches can be a part of the breakfast or can be packed to school in their tiffins. Sandwich for me are not just snacks or breakfast dish, in fact, I can have sandwich any time in a day. I can prepare sandwich with anything so whenever I prepared potato-based curry/vegetable in the lunch my evening snack is that sandwich filled with that curry.  

This month Challenge Topic is ”Stuffed Items” and all my fellow bloggers posted wonderful recipes. My Partner Avin Kohli gave me two ingredients Gobi and Cheese and I really enjoyed doing my Gobi sandwich.Sandwiches are not only delicious but are also the quickest and easiest meals to prepare. It’s also very healthy as it is loaded with vegetables and paneer. You can also add capsicum, beetroot or cauliflower to the filling.

Plum and Orange Juice



Plums are also helpful in bone metabolism and protect you from bone diseases caused due to aging. This juice will help regulate the digestive system, helps against constipation and good blood pressure. Oranges are the great source of Vitamin C and hence helps in immunity for the growing kids. This juice is also ideal for weight loss thanks to the high amount of vitamin C. Orange and plums are packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, copper, manganese and potassium .Plums are good sources of chromogenic acid and neochlorogenic acid, compounds in the phenols family which have been well-documented to possess strong antioxidant and anticancer effects.Thus this drink was made. Loved the color and taste of it...

Mango Avocado Pasta Salad


Mango season is always the best time of year and I find a way to incorporate mangoes into just about everything. This pasta salad recipe is simple to make and absolutely delicious. This recipe is full of flavor and makes you feel like you're eating a big bowl of summer. The perfect healthy summer recipe! Knowing that both mango and avocado are spring seasonal produce and being that I’m a fan of both (individually and as a combo), So I thought why not share this summer-fresh pasta salad with you all. A fresh sunny salad like this one for perfect for my lunch.
April month Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge discussed as “Salad” as topic.I have paired again with Mayuri Patel, who gave me two lovely secret ingredients Mango and Pasta. Frankly speaking,my pasta is colourful and healthly .Thanks dear for making our day wonderful with pasta salad and our family enjoyed.

Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Italian

Ingredients
  • Fusilli Pasta -2 cups
  • Ripe Mango (Cubed) -1 no
  • Ripe Avocado (Cubed) -1 no
  • Mint leaves –few sprigs
  • Olive oil -1 tbsp. (tossing the pasta)
  • Salt and Pepper –to taste
  • Lemon Juice -1 tbsp

Method
1. Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, mix together the lime juice and olive oil. 2. Once pasta has cooked, run it through cold water, drain, and then transfer it to a bowl. Add half of the lime juice and olive oil mixture, toss, and set aside or put in refrigerator to cool.
 3. In a large bowl, place all the ingredients for the salad. Now mix avocado, mango, lime juice and olive oil, fresh mint leaves and toss well.
4. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.


 Notes
Add about 2/3 of cooked pasta. (You can use more or less depending on how much pasta you’d like in your salad.)
Lime Dressing not just adds zing in this simple salad but also prevents sliced avocados from blackening quickly. So I always have some extra dressing in refrigerator.
In morning, add sliced avocado mixed in remaining dressing and this salad will easily sat fresh for next 5-6 hours
