It can be hard to incorporate protein seamlessly into your daily diet. I thought of sharing ways to add more protein to dishes and meals you already love. Let's start with all time favorite and popular Aloo Poha (Potato and Beaten Rice).
|Thick poha||2 Cup (32 tbs) (flattened rice, parched rice)|
|Potato||1 Large , cubed (aloo or batata)|
|Onion||1 Medium , chop|
|Green chilli||1 Small , finely chopped|
|Curry leaves sprig||1 (kadi patta, about 8 to 10 curry leaves)|
|Mustard seeds||1 Teaspoon (rai)|
|Cumin seeds||1 Teaspoon (jeera)|
|Roasted peanuts||1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (moongphali)|
|Turmeric powder||1/2 Teaspoon (haldi)|
|Sugar||1 Teaspoon (or more if you want it the poha to be more sweet)|
|Grated fresh coconut||3 Tablespoon (optional)|
|Chopped coriander leaves||2 Tablespoon (cilantro leaves)|
|Lemon juice/Lemon wedges||1 Teaspoon (or as required)|

To add extra protein, add 1/2 cup of Boiled Chana (Chickpeas), or 1/2 cup Sprouted Mung Beans or 1/2 cup cooked Quinoa. All these are not just high in protein but fiber as well. If desired, season all these ingredients before adding to Aloo Poha Bowl. For instance, I would make masala chana to get flavorful bowl.
