26 days of Protein rich dishes

Here's the round up of this month long marathon with protein rich dishes. As I Said in my previous post, I am really happy that I could finish this marathon on time. Actually the last couple of posts I was able to schedule ahead of time. Though I had internet problems and had to deal with my chickungunya viral infection; yet i managed. Yes there is a flaw - I am way behind in commenting but I will definitely finish the commenting part by next month.

This month marathon was quite informative. I learnt about many new ingredients that I havent yet used in my cooking like kavuni arisi, moth bean etc.. I also learnt a whole lot of paneer dishes enough to run another marathon. Though I am non-vegetarian, i was not aware that all the 9 amino-acids are present in meat and not all 9 amino acids are available in one plant-food. Lot more knowledge-gaining has happened and hopefully I will able to use them in my day-to-day cooking to make the meals more healthy.

This marathon I had planned with sub-themes for protein rich dishes where-in I tried to make a balance between vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.
