Navratri Special Low Carb Coleslaw Recipe
Like every year this year too I am fasting during Navratri. Nine days of self control and clean eating. Since I don’t eat any grains and even those Kuttu Atta goodies with carb loaded potatoes and Sago so its important for me to eat something filling yet healthy. As we all know by now that staying very low carb is not possible on a vegetarian diet, so Navratri time can be very easily made into low calorie time. Still I manage to go as low as possible on carbs.
So last night to break my fast this is what I prepared.
Healthy Coleslaw Recipe
Cabbage finely shredded 200 gm
Carrot grated 100 gm
- Cucumber 100 gm
Paneer (cottage cheese) crumbled 28 gm (1 oz)
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 gm
Pear thinly chopped pieces 50 gm
- Pomegranate seeds 50 gm
Lemon juice few drops
Crumble the paneer and place in a blender with the drained yogurt, spinach puree, salt, pepper powder. Blend well. Process till smooth.
Place the shredded cabbage in a bowl. Add the salt, lemon juice and grated carrots and mix well.
Add the apples, cucumber, pears and pomegranate. Add paneer and curd mix as dressing and toss well. Serve at once as it might become watery after sometime as cabbage leaves water.
Well, my recipe is never complete without presenting Nutrition Count of it. So here is the Nutrition Data for my Navratri Special Coleslaw.
So as you too can analyse that it is a bit higher on carbs but very low on fats and good enough with fiber content. In fact on second thoughts, when you are fasting 26-7=19 gm carbs in a complete meal is not that bad. Isn’t it? And yes let me tell you, this one serving was just TOOOO much with a glass of butter milk made with two tsp of curd. 🙂 One last thing to be added is that its a wonderful snack for Diabetics too.
