How to make almond bara with choilaA recipe for Newar food lovers.
Wrangling one’s self control when eating low-carb is hard, especially when someone offers you delicious Newari food. As much as it is difficult to resist, they are equally rich in carbs. But what if you can make a low-carb bara and choila? This recipe is a must for Newar food lovers.
As red meat has more fat than white meat, Dr Praniti Singh, clinical and bariatric nutritionist, says it is preferable moderately. Using almond flour, though it has some carbs, is common as it is comparably rich in good fats.
75 grams of almonds for the flour
2-3 tbsps butter
Salt, to taste
½ tbsp minced ginger
½ tbsp minced garlic
200g buffalo meat
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp red chilli
¼ cup coriander leaves
Grind 75 grams of almonds in blender. Once a flour-like texture is achieved, add 4 to 5 tablespoons of it to a bowl. Mix with water and a tablespoon of butter and make a batter out of it. Rest the mixture for a few minutes.
Heat a tablespoon of butter in a pan. Pour the batter thick, in the shape of bara, and start cooking. Flip it after you start seeing tiny bubbles in the crust on the uncooked side and your keto bara is ready.
For choila, fry your meat with butter in a pan. Once the meat develops a nice colour, remove it from the pan. Fry tomatoes in the same pan with red chilli. Use mortar and pestle or mixer to grind the tomatoes, add ginger, garlic and salt. Coat the meat with the mixture. Garnish it with coriander leaves.
