Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Barley is a complete healthy package of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Barley claim's to be an excellent source of molybdenum, manganese, dietary fiber, and selenium, and a good source of copper, vitamin B1, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium, and niacin.


  • Barley (raw) - 3 tbsp
  • Green moong dal - 1 tbsp (raw) -
  • Cumin seeds - ¼ tsp
  • Asafoetida, optional - ¼ tsp (optional)
  • Green chilli, slit - 1 (optional)
  • Onion, minced - ½ 
  • Tomato, chopped finely - ½ 
  • Turmeric powder- ¼ tsp
  • A squeeze of lemon - optional
  • Chopped cilantro - for garnish
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Salt - to-taste

Step 1 Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Add the cumin seeds.  Step 2 When they sizzle, add asafetida and green chilli. Stir for 30 seconds. Step 3 Then add onions. Sautee on medium heat till the onions are soft (don't let them brown). Add the tomatoes, and cook till they are soft Add turmeric, barley, and moong dal. Stir for a few seconds.  Step 4 Add 3 cups of water and salt. Bring the water to a boil.  Step 5 Then reduce heat to low, put a lid on the pan, and let it simmer till the barley is cooked. I like the barley to have a little bite to it, so I cook it for about 20 minutes.  Step 6  If you want the barley to be softer, cook it longer. During cooking, if the khichdi dries up, add water as needed, ½ cup at a time. Serve with curds.

Whole Wheat Sprout Veggie Wrap(easy To Prepare)

A very healthy and tasty way to have our normal 'subji-roti'. Mixed veggies provide vitamins and minerals whereas wheat is a source of dietary fiber and carbs. Bean sprouts are a good source of protein and garlic helps boost the immune system and provides protection against cold and cough.

Couscous Chicken Paratha

Eating couscous provides you with a good source of lean, vegetarian protein. Choosing lean protein sources helps ensure you're meeting your daily protein needs without consuming excess fat. Chicken consists of high-quality protein and a relatively low amount of fat. In addition, fat in chicken is mostly of the unsaturated type, which protects against heart disease.

Brown Rice Paneer Pulao (easy To Prepare)

This high fibre pulao consisting of brown rice not only provides satiety but also is much healthier than simply white rice as it is a whole grain. Not only does it contain naturally healthy oils, nutrients such as selenium and manganese, but also promotes weight loss as is easier to digest and seek bowel regularity. Also, adding to the advantage of this pulao is the complete protein paneer. Not only it is high in calcium and phosphorus, but also known to improve one's metabolism aiding in weight loss and reducing the risk of insulin resistance syndrome. Also consisting green peas, the most nutritious leguminous vegetables, rich in health benefiting phyto-nutrients, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants, and low calories, this pulao seems complete as a dinner meal with a bowl of cold vegetable raita.
