Paneer-Alloo Kofta in Appe Pan for Navratri Fast

paneer-alloo kofta
Navratris have already started. It is that time of the year when most of you observe fasting for nine days. While some fast for ashtami, some others observe Navmi.

My mom follows her mother in law when it comes to observing Navratris. So my mom's family fasts for Ashtmi, so do I and hubby dear.

Traditional Navratri recipes were kuttu parantha and potato curry. Today, we have some many brains working to include falahari or fruit-based navratri recipes.

Navratri Fast Recipes

I am a big admirer of appe pan because it gives me health food. Of course, it saves me time and offers me unmatched health benefits, since I can make non-fried versions of fried recipes.

While fasting last ashtami, I wanted to change my traditional navratri recipe of having only potato curry with kuttu roti.

So I decided to prepare paneer at home by adding 2 tbsp curd in 2 cups of boiling milk. The milk curdled quickly and whey separated from paneer.
Sieve paneer from whey.
Use whey for this cheese cutlet curry or kneading dough.

Without further ado, let's get to the navratri recipe now!

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.
