It can be hard to incorporate protein seamlessly into your daily diet. I thought of sharing ways to add more protein to dishes and meals you already love. Let's start with all time favorite and popular Aloo Poha (Potato and Beaten Rice).

Protein is an essential macronutrient for building strength and muscle, but it can sometimes be challenging to get enough into your diet. So let me share first the ingredients to prepare Aloo Poha
2 cups thick poha (flattened rice, parched rice)
1 large potato (aloo or batata), cubed OR 2 medium sized
1 small to medium onion, finely chopped if desired but I did not add in this video as I added garlic, normally I would love to add onion
1 small green chili, finely chopped
1 sprig curry leaves (kadi patta) about 8 to 10 curry leaves
1 teaspoon mustard seeds (rai)
1 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 cup roasted peanuts (moongphali)
1/4 to ½ teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi)
1 teaspoon sugar or more if you want it the poha to be more sweet
2 to 3 tablespoon grated fresh coconut, optional
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves (cilantro leaves)
a few lemon wedges or 1 teaspoon lemon juice or as required
2 to 2.5 tablespoons oil
salt as required

to add extra protein, add 1/2 cup of Boiled Chana (Chickpeas), or 1/2 cup Sprouted Mung Beans or 1/2 cup cooked Quinoa. All these are not just high in protein but fiber as well. If desired, season all these ingredients before adding to Aloo Poha Bowl. For instance, I would make masala chana to get flavorful bowl.
