Simple and easy to cook low-calorie meal with loads of goodness & surprise surprise, It's flavourful. This recipe will surely bust the myth - healthy & low-calorie food isn't tasty. On the contrary, it is yum :) it's how we look at it, prepare it and present it!

Ingredients  :

> 3/4th cup of chopped capsicum/bell peppers (red, yellow, green mix) - finely chopped

> 100 gms Tofu - chopped in small cubes

> 1 bunch of spinach - leaves plucked, washed, blanched, and  pureed (with 1 green chili optional)

    5-6 spinach leaves to be kept aside and to be finely chopped.

> 1 tbsp red onions - finely chopped

> 6-8 garlic cloves - peeled & finely chopped

> seasoning of pink Himalayan salt (or you can use the regular white salt), black pepper powder - as per taste

> recommended 1 tbsp olive oil  (or any other refined / cold-pressed oil is fine, but no butter or ghee)

> some white sesame seeds to garnish

> a tsp of lime juice


First, puree the spinach and add it to a pan. Add some salt and pepper as per taste. Add a bit of water to bring it to the curry consistency, it should not be too thick or thin. Optional - A tomato can be added while pureeing the spinach. In a frying pan, add the olive oil, heat it slightly, and add the chopped garlic. Do not brown, add the chopped onions and bell peppers. Stir fry everything for 2-3 min to just cook them and yet the veggies should have enough crunch. Just before taking it off the heat add chopped Tofu, chopped spianch leaves and season it with salt and pepper. In a deep serving plate - add the boiled rice. Pour the spinach puree around, add the stir-fried veggies and tofu. Garnish with white sesame seeds & dash of lime juice and serve immediately.

You can also create some variations, by adding zucchini, broccoli along with bell peppers. Low-fat paneer also works well as a substitute to Tofu or even better mini soya chunks!
