Coconut Idiyappam | Tengu Idiyappam | Breakfast Recipes

Delicate and light, super flavoursome coconut idiyappam
12/04/2018 7:31:37 PM vindhyadesai

Delicate and light filled with coconut flavour, coconut idiyappam is very easy to make. It needs a little patience and you can serve some really fancy looking food in no time. I generally use good quality store-bought idiyappam flour, organic of course. But you can also use rice flour to make idiyappam, check the notes in the recipe card.
For coconut idiyappam it’s best to grind the coconut into a paste before adding to the flour. I skipped this as I was in a hurry but coconut can get stuck in the plate while pressing out the idiyappam. Ensure to season the idiyappam dough well or your coconut idiyappam will taste bland. ... “Coconut Idiyappam | Tengu Idiyappam | Breakfast Recipes”

Lauki Idli | Sorekayi Idli | Idli Recipes

Soft, healthy and makes for a delicious breakfast, lauki idli or sorekayi idli
11/20/2018 7:02:31 AM vindhyadesai

Idli is one of the best breakfasts ever to be invented on earth in my opinion. They are so light and fluffy and very nutritious. Adding more nutrition into your idlis, sounds good right? Lauki or bottlegourd or doodhi or sorekayi is a great vegetable. It has so much goodness, so incorporating this goodness into steamed idlis, it gets my thumbs up. Lauki idli is one of the best ways to feed fussy kids with some lauki.
All lauki idli needs is some preparation in the form of soaking some idli rice. Idli rice or fat grained rice is best for this recipe, you can get this type of rice in any Indian grocery store. I have also added some upma rava or sooji into the batter to make the idli light and to give it some extra texture. Lauki cannot be seen or detected in this idli and when you steam the lauki idli it brings a sweet aroma. ... “Lauki Idli | Sorekayi Idli | Idli Recipes”

Dosa is such a popular dish that new ways of making them are always welcome.

Recipes like cheela are simple yet they make your breakfast really hearty. Palak besan cheela is one of my favourites I started making in recent times.It is rich in protein and fibre, and what do I say about the flavour. Moreover it is instant and makes a quick breakfast.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal | Oatmeal Recipes | Breakfast Recipes

Warm, comforting, loaded with healthy dietary fibre, apple cinnamon oatmeal
10/21/2018 12:46:29 PM vindhyadesai

Imagine a blustery winter morning and you are craving for something warm and comforting. Our Indian breakfast recipes are the best, idli with sambar, upma, huLi avalakki, ukad etc. But sometimes you can also go for something different and oatmeal is definitely a very healthy option. How about trying to make it more interesting by making this apple cinnamon oatmeal.
Apple cinnamon oatmeal makes regular oats tastier and more attractive. Cinnamon adds a touch of warmth and earthiness. On the other hand, there is sweet juicy apple all chopped up ready to go on top of your oatmeal. I generally add a small blob of butter to enrich my oatmeal and because I love butter! ... “Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal | Oatmeal Recipes | Breakfast Recipes”

Urad Dal Flour And Rice Flour Dosa | No-Grind Dosa | Dosa Recipes

Easy to make, no soak, no grind, crisp urad dal flour and rice flour dosa
09/30/2018 1:59:39 PM vindhyadesai

Dosa means different things to different people. For some it is just a breakfast that they can have once every few days. For some it is an everyday affair, gulping down dosas in darshinis and hotels day in day out. And for some ‘the dosa’ is an emotion, it is the crisp sound of breaking the dosa and dunking it in chutney or sambar. It makes them just happy! I borderline between the 2nd an 3rd categories, just love dosas. But grinding dosa batter is not child’s play. This urad dal flour and rice flour dosa comes to your rescue.
If you are craving for dosa the next day for your breakfast (sometimes I dream about dosa, that is why borderline :)), you do not have to wait, 8 hours soak-time, then grind (an uphill task for a few & I don’t blame them), 8 hours fermentation. It indeed takes a lot of time to dish out good dosas. This urad dal flour and rice flour dosa definitely ticks a few boxes. ... “Urad Dal Flour And Rice Flour Dosa | No-Grind Dosa | Dosa Recipes”

Red Rice Dosa | Kempu Akki Dosa | Dosa Recipes

A tasty & healthy alternative to regular dosa, red rice dosa for breakfast!
09/13/2018 9:17:45 PM vindhyadesai

Variety of dosa recipes are a must for a South Indian home cook. Dosas are not just masala dosas as many think , they are much more. There is so much variety, so many recipes to play with. The end result is always tasty, delicious dosas for everyone to enjoy! This red rice dosa is one such great alternative to prepare.
I had raw red rice at home and also some red rice poha (flattened rice/avalakki). The best way to use red rice is to make red rice dosa, you get a lovely coloured dosa and the texture is crispy on the outside and soft inside. ... “Red Rice Dosa | Kempu Akki Dosa | Dosa Recipes”

Banana Appam | Banana Paddu | Baalehannina Gundupongala

Sweet and delicious banana appam or banana paddu, a super easy dish for festivals
09/11/2018 1:49:18 PM vindhyadesai

Banana is my favourite fruit to cook with. You can make so many dishes with it. Every part of the banana plant is edible and in fact we cook with most parts of banana/plantain plant. Ripe banana is such a boon, kids and adults alike like this fruit and the dishes made that are made with it. Banana appam or banana paddu is a traditional favourite at home and we make this for breakfast and for festivals.
The best part of banana appam is it can be made instantly. No waiting long hours for fermentation or no need of kneading any dough. All you need is a paddu/appam pan and when it heating, making the batter. Banana appam or banana paddu is made with whole wheat flour which is mixed with jaggery, ripe bananas and cardamom for flavouring. ... “Banana Appam | Banana Paddu | Baalehannina Gundupongala”

Paneer Paratha | Paratha Recipes | Breakfast Recipes

Soft paneer paratha, quick to make, delicious to eat for breakfast or dinner
08/21/2018 10:35:13 PM vindhyadesai

Parathas are delicious to eat and some parathas are even easy to prepare. Although the general notion about paratha-making is, it is very time consuming. But not this paneer paratha, nuh huh! The paneer stuffing for paneer paratha is easy to make. It’s a matter of then rolling out the parathas and serving them.
To make life easier I generally knead whole wheat dough earlier and set it aside for gluten formation. Just before making parathas I prepare the stuffing in 5 minutes and roll out soft fresh parathas. Mouth-watering indeed, isn’t it? There are many ways of rolling out parathas, I have shown the sandwich method of making parathas here. ... “Paneer Paratha | Paratha Recipes | Breakfast Recipes”

Avalakki Bisi Bele Bhaat | Poha Bisi Bele Bhaat | Breakfast Recipes

Perfect for breakfast lunch or dinner, delicious avalakki bisi bele bhaat
08/17/2018 8:00:35 AM vindhyadesai

Making variations of famous dishes can be delicious at times. Like this avalakki bisi bele bhaat which is an easy alternative to making elaborate bisi bele bhaat. Both taste great and the textures are slightly different. For avalakki bisi bele bhaat I generally add mung dal or hesaru bele. Whereas for rice bisi bele bhaat we add toor dal or togari bele.
As this is a quicker version of traditional BBB it’s not necessary to grind a coconut masala. Avalakki or poha is quite light on its own so we do not need additional things to make it rich and heavy. Throw in a few cashews and groundnuts for that crunch and colour. Generally, avalakki bisi bele bhaat is served immediately. Avalakki/poha absorbs a lot of liquid and so does mung dal, so it’s best to serve it fresh. ... “Avalakki Bisi Bele Bhaat | Poha Bisi Bele Bhaat | Breakfast Recipes”
