Navratri Special Low Carb Coleslaw Recipe
Like every year this year I fast during Navratri. Nine days of self-control and clean eating. Since I don't eat cereals or kuttu atta treats with carbohydrate potatoes and sago, it's important for me to eat something filling, yet healthy. As we all know by now, on a vegetarian diet, it is not possible to consume very little carbohydrates, so the Navratri period can very easily be converted into a low-calorie diet. Still, I manage to keep the carbohydrates as low as possible.
Last night, to break my fast, I prepared for it.
Healthy coleslaw recipe
Finely chopped cabbage 200 g
Carrot grated 100 g
- Cucumber 100 g
Paneer (cottage cheese) crumbled 28 g
Yogurt drained or very thick 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
- Spinach puree 2 tsp
Pepper powder 1/2 teaspoon
Apple chopped thin small pieces 100 g
Pear thinly chopped pieces 50 g
- Pomegranate seeds 50 g
Lemon juice a few drops
Crumble the paneer and place in a blender with the drained yogurt, spinach puree, salt and pepper powder. Mix well. Process until smooth.
Put the shredded cabbage in a bowl. Add salt, lemon juice and grated carrots and mix well.
Add the apples, cucumber, pears, and pomegranate. Add paneer and curd mixture as a dressing and toss well. Serve immediately as if cabbage leaves water it can get watery after a while.
Well, my recipe is never complete without submitting a Nutrition Count of it. Here are the nutritional information for my Navratri Special Coleslaw.
As you can also analyze, it is slightly higher for carbohydrates, but very low in fat and good enough with fiber content. In fact, fasting 26-7 = 19g of carbohydrates in one full meal doesn't matter that much. Not true? And yes, let me tell you, that one serving was just too much with a glass of buttermilk made from two teaspoons of curd. One last thing to add is that it is a wonderful snack for diabetics too.
