Healthy Lasagna Recipe – Step by Step Procedure

Healthy Lasagna Recipe – Step by Step

I was reading posts by rati and other โ€˜Diet consciousโ€™ people on IMBB and I realized I should do a post on a recipe which is very healthy , it is very unhealthy in the real version but I tweaked it from all the sides ๐Ÿ˜› and crated a whole desi, vegetarian and healthy version which taste exactly like the original (not so healthy) one ๐Ÿ˜› .

I will be teaching you ladies how to make lasagna ๐Ÿ™‚ , I know you must be thinking OHMYGOD it has so much cheese in it and maida but wait for it ladies this one is without any cheese or maida . ๐Ÿ™‚ย  so here goes , you will need โ€“ to make the layers of pasta โ€“ 4 big spoons of atta ,olive oil and salt.


– combine salt & flour in bowl and make a well in the center

– quickly pour both olive oil and water into well

– use your hands to form all of the dough into a ball

– now take a bowl which has been heated and cover the dough with it or you can cover it with a warm damp towel for 10-15 minutes to give the ingredients time to mix together (DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP, your pasta will be hard to work with/taste funny)

Now that our pasta is done we will make our two sauces
WHITE SAUCE –
Take 4 big spoons of atta , In a small, heavy saucepan, put 4 tablespoons of olive oil over low heat.
Blend 3 tablespoons of flour into it and add salt to taste .make sure to put it on very low heat , we have to cook it till it loses its flour flavor ( 2-5 minutes , make sure that it doesnโ€™t burn.

Now add milk little by little because if you pour in all the milk it will become chunky . you can take one glass of milk to make the sauce think or if you want it more runny you can put more milk . ๐Ÿ™‚

You are done with your white sauce now all you need to do is put oregano in it and cover it so that the beautiful smell or oregano stays in it

RED SAUCE โ€“ take as many tomatoes you want , I took 4 big ones cause I love red sauce :p and grind them into a puree paste ๐Ÿ™‚

Healthy lasagna
– Take olive oil in a pan , cut the garlic and put it in the pan till its golden brown


– Put the tomato puree in this and add salt to taste.

The secret behind a great red sauce is to cook it as much as you can , the real Italian red sauce is sometimes cooked for 3 or 4 days :p , I cook mine for half an hour ( remember to put it on low heat and cover it because it will bubble and ruin you marble tile :p ) .till the time you sauce is cooking you should.

Healthy lasagna

– Cut all the vegetable in small sizes , I like them a bit big cut but you can cut it smaller too I cut paalak,carrot and shalgam
– You can cook them to soften them up a little , just take a big kadai and put the vegetable in it and just let them cook in their own water for about 15 minutes till they become soft .
– By this time you sauce will be done so just mix oregano and cover it up to
– I mix both my sauces and the vegetable together so that the vegetables become soft and soak in the flavor of both the sauces.

Healthy lasagna
– Now we are done with the filling of the lasagna so now we will make the layers of pasta
Healthy lasagna
You just need to make it like a roti just make square rotis :p , the secret of it not tasting like atta is that it should be very slim , the more fat the layer of pasta is the more chewy it will get , so make sure to make very slim layers .
– We will not boil this pasta because it is freshly made ๐Ÿ™‚
– Now take a square or any shaped over and microwave friendly glass dish and start plating the lasagna up .one layer of pasta then one layer of the sauces and vegetables .make 3 to 5 layers like that.Healthy lasagna

– You finished product should look like this ( cover up any place where there is no sauce )
– Now bake this in the oven but I have microwave :p I put it on grill+normal cocking for an hour but I take it out every 15 minutes too check if its not sticky and burning .after cooking take it out and let it set for half an hour and then serve :0

    1. Use a whisk to make it lump-free…..when you add milk to the maida-butter thingy……..take a wire whisk and stir it as you add milk……and then let it boil….fool-proof way to make it lump-free!

      1. yea ๐Ÿ™‚ but i dont have wisk ๐Ÿ™ so me just pour thoda milk and then hilaofy and then thoda more and then stir and then thoda ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. are ultimate fool-prrroof way? use a hand blender when white sauce is done….ekdam lump-free and creamy sheen……I also add a bit of mustard powder…yeah yeah just crush some from masale ka dabba….and add….its sooooooo yummmo!

  7. Used to eat lasagna a lot in Italy; I used to visit a couple sometimes and the host was an extraordinary chef; and I used to demand lasagna with red wine every time I went there. ๐Ÿ™‚

    In Delhi, found tasty Italian food at an Italian Restaurant in ‘Kasbah’ at N-Block Market G.K.- 1. Tastes the same as it did in Italy.

    Will definitely try this recipe. ๐Ÿ™‚

    thanx for the recipies !! ๐Ÿ˜€ belated happy bday komal :party: :party: :party: :party: :party:

  12. komal…. u gonna make me over weight now…. this looks so so yummy… thanks for the post….. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. this will definately not make you overweight ๐Ÿ˜€ that was the intention , i made butter into cooking oil and less in quantity and the maida into atta ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. I love lasanga….but its too much work! My favorite is with spinach and ricotta cheese and parmesean cheese and mozarella cheese….and lots of garlic and basil leaves in between! I to love Italian food….Pizza is my all-time favorite and great weakness! Pistatachio gelato, ok now I am not going to think…..ok..ok..one more…..Panini Sandwich….with just fresh tomato, basil leaves and fresh mozarella slices and lots of salt and pepper inbetween Focaccia bread slices……heheheheheh….I am total Foodie.

    1. Nia !!! your so like me ๐Ÿ™‚ but i ddnt know the dishes after pizza ๐Ÿ˜› , i alwasy try to use atta in place of maida ๐Ÿ˜€ in pizza , i made it once , it was sooooooooooo good and i was like yay ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Actually I keep maida-related dishes for guilt-free evenings…..Before I have always cooked “healthy” way and ate lot more…….now adays…I just go for regular recipe and eat limited portion…..that way I can be happy! But I loved the way, your recipe doesnt need any “boiling in water” phase…..that it self can cut down lot of time….and your recipe is very good….muh mein paani aa gaya! I love Garlic bread with any Italian dish…..just mix butter or olive oil with fresh garlic and salt…and pepper and spread or drizzle on open sliced bread….bake it in oven and then eat it…..for those of you who dont mind occaisional splurge…..mozarella cheese takes it to another level! We all (my family) also love Italian Daal-dhokli…aka…..Ravioli hehehehe…..

  14. yummmmmmmm……………me surely gonna try this.
    I had made lasagna last sunday…….. :yahoo: :yahoo:
    But with lots of cheese :tongue: :tongue:
