Ragi (finger millet) Taco with Tofu filling

# Votes:

0

Tofu filling:
• Grate or make a paste with ginger and garlic
• Finely chop onion
• Heat a small non-stick pot with olive oil, sauté chopped onion, ginger and garlic paste.
• Once the onion, ginger and garlic have sweat well, they will turn translucent and become soft.
• Crumble tofu with your hands and add it to the pan along with sweet corn and all the spices.
• Add salt to your taste (I have only added a pinch of salt as with all spices and tofu etc. it doesn’t need to have much salt).
• Mix well and fry for 4-5 mins.
For the Pico de gallo:
• Finely chop all the ingredients apart from the lime.
• Mix all the chopped ingredients with a pinch of salt and lime juice.
• Let the lime juice and salt work their magic for a couple of mins then the refreshing Pico de gallo is ready to use.
For the Avocado dressing:
• Halve the avocado and remove the stone, then scoop the creamy goodness into a blender.
• Add a peeled clove of garlic, a snapped green chilli, juice from the lime and a pinch of salt.
• Blend it all well until smooth and creamy.
For the Ragi Taco:
• Take the Ragi flour in a large bowl and pour in one cup of boiling water.
• Mix with a spoon as it will be very hot as you have just added boiling water, slowly it will start to look like crumbly dough.
• Knead briefly until smooth, then cut equally into six and roll out each piece into small round balls.
• There are several methods to make the dough balls into a round tortilla: 1) you can place it in a banana leaf or a non-stick film and press it with your hands until it is spread into a round-shaped tortilla. 2) Use a traditional Mexican taco presser or Indian style roti maker to press the dough. 3) Place the dough between two sheets of cling film and roll it into a round tortilla.
• Heat a large non-stick frying pan, without oil, and cook the tortillas one at a time for a minute on one side and about 10 seconds on the other, until you see them puff up a little.
Finishing off:
Place a ragi tortilla, fill it with some tofu filling, add some Pico de gallo, top with shredded red cabbage and drizzle avocado dressing, then finally scatter the coriander leaves. Enjoy the creamy, zingy, crunchy, tangy and refreshing taco…. Don’t forget to keep a napkin by your side as it can get messy😊

Stuffed Romano Peppers with Bulgur wheat served with rocket and walnut salad

# Votes:

0

For the Bulgur wheat filling:
• Grate or make a paste with ginger and garlic.
• Finely chop the onion, green chilli and tomatoes.
• Heat a small non-stick pot with a few drops of olive oil, sauté the chopped onion, ginger and garlic paste.
• Once the onion, ginger and garlic have sweat well, they will turn translucent and become soft.
• Add the chopped green chilli and tomato, let them sweat a little.
• Add bulgur wheat and the veg stock, bring it to boiling point then simmer the flame and cover it with a lid. (You may have noticed that there is no salt in this dish. The saltiness from the veg stock is just enough so no need to add any extra).
• Let the bulgur wheat cook on a low flame for about 10mins. Once cooked turn off the heat and let it rest for 5mins.
• Once the bulgur wheat is ready add freshly chopped coriander leaves and mix well.

Stuffed Peppers:
• Halve the Romano pepper and place it on a baking sheet.
• Put it under the grill for a couple of mins so that the pepper is cooked slightly.
• Now fill the pepper with bulgur wheat filling.
• Spread the grated cheese. (Cheese is a great source of calcium, protein and other vitamins such as vitamin A and B12. Although it has fats in it, a small of amount of cheese is not bad for health).
• Finally, place the filled peppers under a grill until the cheese is melted and golden brown.

Salad and Balsamic glaze:
• Toss the rocket leaves and extra virgin olive oil in a bowl.
• Crush the walnuts with the palm of your hands and add it to the rocket.
• Bring the balsamic vinegar to boil in a small pot and then simmer for 5mins. It will reduce by 1/3 and continue to thicken when its cooled (The quantity mentioned for this recipe is the quantity needed for this dish but it’s easy to make the glaze in large quantities i.e. 100-200ml and store it for future use so that you can use it on salads, caramelised onions etc.).

Finishing off:
Drizzle balsamic glaze in a zig-zag pattern, little dots or love hearts …whatever you fancy 😊. Spread the rocket and walnut salad. Finally, carefully place the grilled stuffed Romano peppers on the rocket. Enjoy the sweet and smokey stuffed Romano with a peppery and nutty rocket salad and a sweet, tangy note from the balsamic glaze.

Ingredients

• 1 large Romano pepper
• 100g bulgur wheat
• 2 cloves garlic
• ½ inch ginger
• 1 green chilli
• 1 banana shallot or 1 small onion
• Handful of baby plum tomatoes (can use one normal tomato)
• 125ml vegetable stock (I make my stock with celery, carrots, onions etc and store them in the freezer whenever I have time so that I can make dishes like this. You can also use shop-bought veg gel stock pots or cubes.)
• Handful of coriander leaves
• 25g grated cheddar (medium strength cheddar works well but you can use any cheese that melts and bubbles well)
• 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
• 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
• Couple of handfuls of rocket leaf
• Handful of walnuts

Veg Ramen with Grilled Tofu

# Votes:

0

For the miso broth:
• Grate the ginger, then chop 2 spring onions and one green chilli.
• Heat a pan with a couple of drops of sesame oil then put it in the ginger, spring onion and chilli. Let them soften a little.
• Now pour in the veg stock, add one tsp soya sauce,1 tsp miso paste and around 300ml of water. Bring to a gentle simmer, cover and leave it to bubble for 5-10 mins. I like gingery bits in my broth so I leave them but if you would like to have a clear broth, strain it into a clean pan and discard everything left in the strainer.
You may have noticed that I haven’t used any salt in this dish, because the saltiness from the soya sauce and veg stock is sufficient for a delicious flavour.
For grilled Tofu:
• Grate or make a paste with ginger and garlic.
• Cut the tofu into flat rectangular chunks.
• Marinade the tofu for about 30 mins with ginger, garlic,1 tsp soya sauce and 1 tsp sesame oil (you can leave it marinated for longer but leave it for a minimum of 30 mins).
• Heat a griddle pan or normal flat pan, then grill the tofu for about 2 mins on each side.
Other elements:
• Drop the soba noodles into a pot of boiling water and let it boil for about 10 mins. Once cooked, drain the water out using a strainer.
• Grate a carrot
• Slice the remaining spring onions
• Slice the red chillies
• Slice and fry the mushrooms in a pan for a couple of mins until it’s cooked
• Make thin ribbons of the Nori sheet
Please note: The toppings/elements you can use in a Ramen are endless. You can use pak choy/bok choy, shitake mushrooms, wild mushrooms, bean sprouts etc. etc. etc…. You can mix and match a variety of toppings of your choice.
Finishing off:
Place the noodles in a large soup bowl then pour in the boiling hot miso broth. Now carefully place all of the other elements (grated carrots, sliced chillies, sliced spring onion, grilled tofu, fried mushrooms and nori ribbons). Finally, sprinkle with black and white sesame seeds. Enjoy the wholesome, gingery and spicy, yet refreshing ramen with all the freshness and sweetness from carrots, spring onions and nori.

3-Let it ferment overnight.
4-Make idlis in the morning by the traditional method and serve with chutney.
Variations-To make it straightaway you can add a teaspoon eno salt to the batter.Let it effervesce and once the batter is fluffy you can make instant idlis.
You can add chopped curry leaves and coriander leaves to the batter.
You can also add finely chopped carrot,beans ,cauliflower and more fresh peas to make vegetable idlis.
Peas and urad dal are NOT fully carb territory.But the fibre from the husk of urad dal as well as the fact that there is no rice at all makes this a low carb alternative. You can also make this into dhoklas or muthiyas.


Low carb mushroom briyani-
In a pot of boiling hot water add the giant cous cous and let it simmer for 8 minutes.Add a spoon of oil to keep them separate.Once done wash in cold water and keep aside.
In a wide bottomed pan add a couple of spoons of oil .Once hot add ur mixed spices then chopped onion followed by ginger garlic paste .When the oil is spitting out on the sides add finely tomatoes with chopped green chillies,salt to taste.When the tomatoes have gone mushy add chilly powder,coriander powder ,jeera powder and fry till oil separates and also until raw smell leaves.At this point add briyani masala if using.Next step is to add a small amount of chopped mint.Saute for a few minutes and add your mushrooms and fry until mushrooms done but remain al dente.You will have more than the required amount of mushroom
So adjust quantities based on how rich you would like your briyani to be.
So in effect add 100 gms of of your cooked
cous cous. Mix well.Leave on low heat for 5 mins.Finish off with coriander.There will be some extra masala which can be eaten on its own for the very low carb dieters.


Low carb yoghurt rice recipe

In a small kadai add a small spoon of oil.Add mustard seeds.Once they crackle add urad dal,green chillies and ginger.Finally curry leaves and optional asafoetida.
Add this to the cooked cous cous.Mix well.Add salt and yoghurt to complete the dish.
My picture has yoghurt raita,Low carb cous cous yoghurt rice.Lowcarb mushroom briyani,plain mushroom gravy and aubergine gravy-Recipe not added to avoid overload.For the strict low carber or keto dieter skil the cous cous. They could just complete their meal with full fat yoghurt and mushroom gravy plus aubergines.
Cous cous is again usually carb heavy.By sticking to 200 gms of cooked cous cous I have managed to combat rice cravings with 32 gms of carbs.If you are someone who has 100 to 150 gms of carbs a day then this is well within limits.But of you are aiming for less than 50 gms then this can be one meal while others have to be really low carb like veg au gratin/paneer tikka /mushroom soups etc.
Low carb adai
Soak all the ingredients except flours and ginger.After 2 hours grind coarsely with ginger and red chillies and salt to taste.My mom always soaked the red chillies too.I usually start by adding the chillies and a small amount of soaked dals and then once ground to a paste add the rest of the dals to keep the batter coarse and ensure red chilli/ginger well ground.Mix in the floirs and adjust the amount of water. It should be a thick and coarse batter.Not smooth and watery like dosa batter.Add finely chopped washed kale leaves and onions.Again you can use grated carrots/spinach/fenugreek leaves/even grated courgettes or paneer to the batter.Make thick pancakes and cook on low heat.Flip over and serve when both sides done.Serve with butter.

Low carb is a minefield.My aim is to adapt and make healthier choices and so am improvising my recipes all .While dals/lentils are not low carb...if that is all is the carbs you are having they fill you up very well.Here we are not only avoiding rice we are bulking up with other low carb flours and also vegetables/greens.

I apolgise if my recipes dont meet the brief.Low carb diet is difficult in terms of the uncertainities and also the complexities attached.I am sharing my recipes as I am hoping it helps atleast a few.....Thanks for conducting this contest....Happy to be challenged and contacted.
