*Going Lite For MBP

The theme for Monthly Blog Patrolling MBP June is ‘Going Lite ‘ conducted by Coffee.

This month I took the theme too seriously with a record break of making four lite recipes from my blogger friends.After last month’s waist bulging recipes it was fun making these lite recipes.

RICHA’S Misal was so tasty with all the chutneys and farsan. It was a meal and yet a chat item. We had it with sandwiches instead of Pav to make a meal.

I followed her recipe , it is perfect.

SIA’S Grilled Vegetables were again tasty and healthy. But I think I over grilled them that made them limp.

But Sia’s vegees are looking just right, with lovely presentation.

BHARATHY’S Sambhar was really yummy ! We had it with rice.

This is the first time my sambhar tasted like sambhar.

Her sambhar recipe is flawless plus it does not require fresh coconut etc, just the basic ingredients.

She gave the recipe of sambhar podi too .So I followed both the recipes ( sambhar podi and sambhar) to get this delicious sambhar.

ANITA’S Matar Kulche were again too tasty and chatpata and yet oil free. Her recipe is very easy to make .

I got kulche from the stores and it was a filling meal for us.

So Coffee what is next month’s theme ? You have managed to control our weight , thanx :))


  1. And I am happy I could!! 🙂 You are indeed going lite my dear!! 🙂 Thanks for these lovely entries.

    Oh Bharathy ,you did not notice one common thing they are all short cut, one dish meals. I am always on the look out for such recipes which makes the exit from the kitchen faster heee hee he

  3. Nice Entries. And i agree they are lite 🙂 Viji

    Thanks Viji 🙂 they were all lite ,very little oil used.Anita’s Matar Kulche is oil free.

  4. I still haven’t tasted misal – when we went to Goa, I saw it on the breakfast menu but it was never available

    Sra then you come over to my place I will make misal for you 🙂 It is a healthy dish ,you can choose how much oil to use and it is full of protein. It has all the taste of a bhel chatpata 🙂
