1. Whole Wheat Pita Bread

  • Pita bread are soft, light and tasty. You can make it crispy too. They are roasted without any oil or butter. It’s a Lebanese bread. It perfectly combines with hummus and quick salad.
  • We will take a high- hipped platter and mix whole wheat flour, salt, powdered sugar and baking powder or baking soda.
  • Now, we will add yogurt and olive oil. Give a gentle mix.
  • Knead a soft dough with warm water. Cover dough with any cloth and rest it for 1 hour.
  • After one hour, roll like a chapati. We will fold like momos . You can see it properly in video. Roll with rolling pin. Make slightly thin chapati.
  • Roast chapati on non sticky pan. Don’t apply oil or any butter. Press with cloth and roast on both sides.

2. No Fry Falafel

  • Falafel is high in many micronutrients and a good source of protein and fibre. It helps in curbing your appetite, support healthy blood sugar and lower your risk of chronic diseases. Traditionally it’s deep fried. But we can make a healthy version by baking it or roasting it in a non-sticky pan.
  • Take a blender add soaked chickpeas, sesame seeds, garlic cloves, onion, coriander, green chilli, lemon juice, baking soda, salt, cumin powder, coriander powder and gramflour for binding.
  • Blend it till like paste. Paste should be little coarse. You can bake or fry in pan. Heat on non sticky pan with less oil.
  • I am baking it in OTG in conventional mode on 200C for 12 minutes.

3. Creamy Hummus

  • Hummus is a healthy snack packed with protein, fibre, good fats and vitamins. Packed hummus are high in calories because they use some ingredients which enhances it tastes but sky rocket it’s calorie intake. I prefer making hummus at home. It’s easy to prepare and healthy too. It promotes weight loss.
  • Blend all the ingredients to a nice smooth hummus.

4. Yogurt and Cucumber Dip

  • Yogurt and cucumber adds a refreshing flavour the platter. Cucumber aids in weight loss.
  • Squeeze out excess water from grated cucumber.
  • Add all ingredients in yogurt and give a gently mix.

5. Quick Salad

  • It’s a healthy quick salad. We just need chopped veggies. Eating salads with meal make your meals a perfect option as yes..!!
  • Take a bowl. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. We are good to serve.
  • Our mezze platter or ready to be served.
