Recipe: High Protein Noodles
People keep asking me for a diet plan for weight loss. I can’t help but reply to their mails with 2 words- “Local Food”. The nutrition level of local food is incomparable and Butterandbutts has always promoted this concept of local food.
Keeping up with the same spirit, how about giving a twist to Indian noodles- Vermicelli aka seviya? Also, with this recipe, I am going to kill your hatred for one of the best & cheapest sources of vegan protein- SPROUTS!
Here why I chose this combination of sprouts and vermicelli- Sprouts do not contain complete protein & should always be consumed with grains like rice, etc.
- Vermicelli – 1/2 cup
- Capsicum – 1 small chopped finely
- Corn – 1/8 cup
- Sprouts – ¼ cup
- Onion – 1 small chopped finely
- Coriander leaves – 2 tsp chopped finely
- Water – 1 cup
- Salt – to taste
- Oil – 2 tsp
- Mustard seeds – 3/4 tsp
- Ginger – 1/2 tsp finely chopped
- Lemon juice (1 medium sized lemon)
- Hing – a pinch
- 1. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add mustard seeds once it’s moderately hot.
- 2. When the seeds start cracking, add ginger and hing. To this, add vegetables and cook for 2-3 minutes.
- 3. To this, add sprouts.
- 4. In a separate pan, roast vermicelli and boil it.
- 5. Add vermicelli to the sprouts and vegetables mixture and cook for 5-6 minutes.
- 6. Add lemon juice and stir.
And it’s ready!
