Potato Lasagne

Since I was fasting for all nine days during Navratri, was bored with the monotony of eating traditional food on fast. Also wanted to eat healthily and refrain from the deep-fried pakoras and sweets. So twisted the age-old lasagne and curated this healthy and interesting dish to change the way we fast.

  • 4 Potatoes (Large)
  • 1 Green Zucchini
  • 1 Yellow Zucchini

Prep: 15 Minutes
Cooking: 35 Minutes

  1. Peel and dice the yellow and green zucchini. Dice the yellow and red bell peppers.
  2. Peel and slice the potatoes. Keep them in water to prevent them from oxidation.
  3. Boil some salted water enough to cover the sliced potatoes. Parboil them and strain in a colander. Set aside to cool.
  4. For the sauce, boil the milk in a pan. Add the dry spices and let it simmer on low heat.
  5. Meanwhile, cream the amaranth flour and butter together. Add it to the simmering milk. Whisk continuously to avoid lumps.
  6. Let the mixture thicken on low heat. Add the dried oregano, tomato powder and salt. Remove from heat and set aside. Heat oil in a pan. Add the diced zucchini and sauté for a minute.
  7. Add the diced bell peppers and adjust the seasoning. Saute again for a minute.
  8. Add half of the prepared sauce to the veggies. Mix well and remove from heat.
  9. Line your borosil tray with some sauce. Now layer the parboiled potatoes on top of the sauce.
  10. Now spread the vegetable mix on the layer of potatoes.
  11. Repeat the process thrice, alternating between sauce, potatoes and vegetables.
  12. Finally spread the grated cheese on top evenly. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for 20 mins.
  13. Slice into equal portions and enjoy when hot.
