Protein is often called the building block of life. Consuming protein-rich foods ensure that you are full for a longer spell, which further prevents you from mindless eating and bingeing. If you happen to be a vegetarian struggling to find enough protein-rich sources, we're here to provide you with a stellar protein-rich recipe that packs in a punch of protein along with a burst of flavours. We're talking about rajma chaat! Your very favourite rajma can now be turned into a delectable yet healthy chaat.
How To Make Rajma Chaat At Home:
Boiled Rajma - 2 cups
Capsicum - 1
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Broccoli Floret - half a cup
Chaat Masala - 1 tsp
Roasted Chana - half a cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 tsp
Take a chopping board and finely chop onion, tomato and capsicum.
Add ghee in a pan and bring it to medium flame. Once the oil is sufficiently hot, add broccoli florets and saute them for a while. Once they are soft yet crisp, turn off the flame. This will take about 3-4 minutes.
Take a wide bowl and add boiled rajma to it. Transfer all the chopped veggies to the bowl along with sauteed broccoli, roasted chana and chaat masala.
Mix all the ingredients well and drizzle lemon juice over them. Rajma chaat is ready to be served and savoured.
Note: You can always customise this recipe as per your liking and preference. Just make sure that you're not adding any extra topping like mayonnaise or cream, which would only contribute to the calorie load of your chaat.
The addition of roasted chana increases the protein value of the chaat. So, think no further and prepare for yourself this healthy chaat, which is a perfect package of both taste and health.
