Why prata and dal curry make a quick and healthy meal?

Whenever possible, we cook everything from scratch. We eat food not just for it’s taste, but for its nutritional value.

However, cooking takes time- a luxury most of us don’t have. What do we do? Make our own frozen meals. Prata and dal is one of our favourite.quick and healthy meal

WHY DAL CURRY MAKES A GOOD FROZEN MEAL?

We love it for a few reasons:

.
1. Nutritious
Lentil is a rich, non-animal source of protein and iron. Ingredients include purple brinjal, red and green chills, yellow potatoes, orange carrots and red tomatoes; colorful vegetables with different phytochemical. I love that it’s seasoned with turmeric, one of the most potent spice on earth. It contains protein, vegetables, carbohydrate and spices in one dish!

.
2. Versatile
Dal curry can be eaten with rice or bread. It’s suitable for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It’s good on its own too.


3. Freeze friendly
Dal curry freeze well- the texture and taste remains the same after reheating.

.
4. Economical
Most mistakenly believe that eating healthy is expensive. We did not make a proper calculation, but the above meal should cost less than RM 2 each serving.

.
5. Filling
A cup of dal and prata cooked with butter makes a satisfying meal for us.
