Grilled Cheese Spinach Corn Sandwich

Grilled Cheese Spinach Corn Sandwich is very interesting and creamy texture sandwich which looks crisp from the outside but taste is cheesy, creamy and savory inside. Love the melted cheese, crispy bread and stuffing of spinach and corn.




For this sandwich, you have to prepare white sauce based creamy spread with using flour, milk and butter, after that combine with spinach, corn and seasoning. Use this spread on bread and grilled with butter and cheese.





Its a perfect snack for tiffin or breakfast. You get enough protein and iron through corn and spinach. But if you want to make healthier sandwich tried to use multi grain bread instead of normal bread.

Kala Chana Masala | Black Chickpea Curry with Jeera Brown Rice

Chickpea or chaana is very protein rich legume which used world wide. You can serve chickpeas in any form salad to curry and dip to rice. You can made delicious curry with black chickpeas to serve along with rice or roti. I generally made jeera rice with black chickpea curry but this time I tried jeera brown rice to make my meal more nutritious.




You can add canned or boiled kala chana to salads to increase the protein and fiber content. Kala chana curry is a spicy Indian stew that uses kala chana, oil, tomatoes and other spices, such as ginger, red chili powder and coriander.




A cup of boiled kala chana contains 269 calories. It has 4 grams of total fat, with less than 1/2 gram of cholesterol-raising saturated fat. Beans are good plant-based sources of protein, and 1 cup of kala chana contains 15 grams of protein, or 30 percent of the daily value based on a 2,000-calorie diet.


Each cup of kala chana provides 13 grams of dietary fiber. Kala chana and other types of beans, lentils, fruits, vegetables and whole grains are good sources of fiber.
