Father’s Day 2020: 4 high-protein hearty meals for a special day at home with dad!

With social distancing in order, this year’s Father’s Day celebration will certainly be one-of-a-kind. Nonetheless it should be celebrated and made memorable with the same enthusiasm. Since dinner at a fancy restaurant or ordering-in is off the table for many of us, it’s time to get creative and surprise your dad with hearty home-cooked meals to make him feel special! Here are four recipe ideas to get you started –

Breakfast: Shakshuka

On this special occasion, skip the regular omelette or scrambled eggs and indulge your father with a skillet of shakshuka, a dish that is popular in many Mediterranean cultures. All you need to do is sauté onion, garlic and cumin in a little oil. Add chopped tomatoes, salt, a little water to soften the mixture and let it cook. Then, create four holes in the gravy with your spatula and gently crack four eggs into them. Cover the skillet till the eggs are poached and serve hot with bread. You can make this dish even healthier by adding spinach.

Lunch: Soya Biryani

Does your father miss those idyllic lazy Sunday lunches of biryani that he relished as a kid? Take him on a trip down memory lane by cooking a delicious biryani, using the same techniques and spices as the regular version, but replace meat with protein-packed soya chunks. This recipe will also take care your father’s protein needs, helping him build immunity during this time. Whip up his favourite version of raita to complete the meal.

Snack: Sprouts and Seeds Bhel

Your dad may scrunch up his nose at the sight of sprouts or super-foods like chia seeds, but here’s your chance to make him fall in love with them. Toss up a fun bhel with sprouts and a handful mix of seeds such as pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. Snacking on this dish with a cup of tea over a game of carrom, is a great way to bond with your father. With all the energy from this protein-packed dish, he’s sure to win the game!

Dinner: Grilled Chicken

The monsoon season may not be a good time to fire up an outdoor barbeque for your dad, but the next best thing would be to grill chicken at home. Opt for chicken breast as it is low in calories but high in protein. You can marinate it in barbeque, black pepper or any other sauce that your father enjoys. Add tossed veggies and baked potato on the side.

To fathers, no extravagant gift can compare to the joy of having his favorite meals, lovingly prepared by his family. This Father’s Day is the perfect occasion to bond with your dad over delicious food and endless conversations!

Let India Protein Score Be Your Guide To Buying Dairy Products

Dairy is a ubiquitous part of food life, ever-present in both foodservice and packaged goods, whether as an end product (such as milk or yogurt) or as a critical input for various cuisines. Given its intrinsic presence, dairy is a microcosm of the food industry, with a barrage of product and prepackaged derivates available flooding the market today. It then becomes important to choose the products that provide the maximum nutritional benefits of dairy – which include calcium, potassium, vitamin D, and most importantly, protein.
