Protein Rich Sabzis, High protein Indian Vegetables

Protein is one of the major nutrients required by the body. The most important function of protein is to support cell health. Each and every cell, tissue and organ of the body needs protein. It helps in the maintenance of cells and also their wear and tear. If you get hurt and a new layer of skin appears with time, it’s because of protein. It helps in transport of oxygen to all cells of the body too. Hair and nails also grow with the help of protein. Moreover bones, which support our body, also need protein for their strength.

Sarson ka SaagSarson ka Saag

An adult man needs approx. 60 g and an adult woman needs approx. 55 g of protein daily. Depending on the amount of work that an individual performs, the protein requirement varies though. During phases of illness, surgery and during recuperation, the protein requirement increases as the body needs it for building anti-bodies and for the regeneration of lost tissues, especially during periods of blood loss to make up for the lost blood. 

Sabzis are usually a unique combination of veggies and spices. But subzis need not be made with just veggies. This section exhibits addition of protein rich ingredients like paneer, dals sprouts and tofu mainly to make up for the protein need by way of vegetarian fare.

Protein Rich Sabzis using Paneer

Paneer one of the most concentrated vegetarian source of protein, which must be included in the meals definitely. While paneer is easily available in the market, when you have time on hand try making it. Learn the art of making Paneer at Home.

Paneer cubes are most commonly used in sabzis. Paneer Korma and Paneer Lababdar are famour Punjabi sabzis which can help you add loads on protein to your diet. Paneer Lababdar adds around 9 g of protein by way of 1 serving. Isn’t it amazing? Pair them with hot rotis or parathas of your choice and accompany it with a bowl of salad to square up a healthy meal.

Another way of using paneer is by grating or crumbling it and using it as a stuffing to make nourishing options like Stuffed Bhindi with Paneer or make Paneer Palak Koftas in Makhani Gravy.  These are perfect for weekends or days you have leisure time. Plan to buy these healthy ingredients well in advance and together also plan to surprise your family with these healthy delicacies over weekends.

To get most of the other nutrients like calcium, magnesium, vitamins and fiber along with a heavy dose of protein in one tasty package, try out Cucumber and Mixed Sprouts Subzi and Spinach and Moath Beans Curry.

Protein Rich Sabzis using Dals 

Dals are equally rich in protein. While most people are proficient in making Everyday Dals and Amti, very few think of using dals to make subzis. Famous Gujarati style Suva Chana Dal (10.9 g of protein / serving) and Maharashtrian style Kala Chana Ambti (10.8 g of protein / serving) are classic examples to prove this.
