Brown Rice and Chicken

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well. Today’s recipe is something I would usually eat on a Sunday afternoon for my dinner with some veg and salad on the side. It’s quite a simple nutritious meal with protein from the chicken and fibre and magnesium from the brown rice. Sometimes the idea of eating healthily might seem quite difficult but a simple switch of white to brown rice makes such a big difference. I’ve not included a recipe or measurements here as I didn’t follow a recipe but you can get an idea of what ingredients to use below. I’m all about flavour with food.

Egg Paratha

Hey everyone, I hope your day had been well!

I’m posting a slightly different cuisine today and when I looked online for recipe inspiration there were quite a few variations which included minced meat or vegetables but as it was my first time making it I kept it simple with egg. This dish, paratha is commonly eaten in places like India and Bangladesh in homes and as a street food. I ate mine with a little squirt of tomato ketchup but it would be even more tasty with a salad, chutney or yogurt.

Recipe: Egg Paratha (makes 1)

Ingredients

63g plain flour

4 tbsp water

1 egg

Spring onion

Salt

Pepper

Chilli

Tumeric

Method

  • To make the dough, mix the flour and water together until it forms a smooth dough and knead for 5 minutes.
  • Mix the egg, spring onion and a sprinkle of salt, pepper, chilli and tumeric together in a small bowl.
  • Heat a pan, whilst waiting for it to get hot, roll out the chapati to a round circle and place in the pan to cook on one side.
  • The pour the egg mixture on top and turn once the egg mixture is no longer runny. Cook for a few another minute and serve.

Fries and Salad

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a great Sunday.

Here is my take on the French Fry Salad. A much healthier version and full of colourful salads. This is a super simple but tasty recipe that you could enjoy for lunch or dinner. I made this meal for myself and did a little bit of each salad I had in the fridge along with 2 potatoes. I have included examples below of how I prepared my salad below but you can do your’s however you like.

Recipe: Fries and Salad (serves 1)

Ingredients

1 sweet potato

1 white potato

Carrot – grated

Lettuce – finely sliced

Yellow pepper – finely diced

Spring onion – finely sliced

Red cabbage – finely diced

Cucumber – finely diced

Raddish – grated

Oil for frying

Method

  • First thing is to prepare your salad, however you like (sliced, diced, chopped). Mix the salad together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Then, chop and wash the potatoes and allow to dry fully before frying in oil, drain off on a paper towel.
  • Put some fries and salad on a plate and enjoy.
