1. Low fat celery soup

While not all versions of celery soup are low in calories, the one made with broth is. To start, in a large saucepan, heat the butter until it bubbles. Add garlic, ginger, onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the chopped celery and cook for 5 minutes, then add the chicken broth. Simmer for 10 minutes until the celery is tender. Add salt, pepper and milk and mix. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Puree mixture, then return to saucepan to reheat, stirring until well blended. Your bowl filled with low-calorie, nutrient-dense soup is ready to serve.


2. Phirni

This two-in-one phirni recipe has two layers: one layer of pista and one layer of rose essence. To start, drain the rice and place it in a blender, with a little milk and blend well. Bring the milk to a boil, add the ground rice to it and bring to a boil again. Stir until everything becomes a well-mixed mass. Add the cardamom and sweetener. Divide the phirni in half and add the pista paste in one portion and the rose essence in the other half. Pour the white phirni into the serving bowl and refrigerate to set. When the white part is set, pour the green part over it, decorate with the almonds and refrigerate it to set. This recipe is just the right kick when you’re craving something sweet.


3. Khatti Meethi Phalyyan

This recipe is bursting with Gujarati flavor, with sautéed beans tossed with tamarind, jaggery and a spicy coconut medley. To prepare the spice paste, start with dry roasted bedki peppers, jeera, coriander seeds and coconut. Pound them together in a mortar and pestle with salt and water until you get a fine paste. Sauté the beans side by side for 2-3 minutes. For the main preparation, in a wok, add oil, mustard seeds, til, and brown. Add spice paste, curry leaves, turmeric, hing, coriander powder and sauté again. Add a little water to help the masala cook. Add sautéed beans to tamarind and jaggery. Cook 3-4 minutes and serve.
