SOME REGULAR BREAKFAST IDEAS AND ONE RARE ONE TOO,..nd another kurta with hand embroidery..


Breakfast is something without which we cant do without in our day to day life ,presenting before you all,..some of my regular breakfast menu which we prepare at home and ya theres one rare one too,..
BREAKFAST DURING MARRAIGE CEREMONY-MATHRI CHAI KE SATH
One of my favourite ya guys i am talking about mathri with chai,mathri is different from papdi because papdi is used in making chat whereas mathdi goes well wth tea,papdi is thin whereas mathdi is thick,..ingredient also is different for both..after the marraige ceremony in uttar pradesh sweets such as motichoor laddoo,khurma,khaja and mathdi are packed in big baskets and sent with bride to her inlaws place,very common ritual followed by almost all hindus .
During my college days whenever i used to go hostel after my vacations ,there was a separate bag which my mother used to pack with delicacies like posta halwa,kachodi sabji for the journey,,,it was three day journey for bangalore from my place...and besan ke ladoo ,pinni and mathris for hostel,..miss those days,..;-)
coming to the recipe ingredient required are
mixture of maida and besan one cup ( quantity can be varied depending on your need )
nigella seeds one tsp
salt to taste
red chilli powder half tsp
few drops of oil
procedure
knead everything together into dough
make marble sized balls from the dough
roll out with help of rolling pinsi nto round shapes of 3 to 4cm in diameter
with the help of fork prick on the rolled out mathris
heat oil in wok
once hot lower the flame and slowly slide the mathris in the wok
keep turning till they turn brown from both sides.
enjoy hot with teA AND PICKLE

EASY BREEZY BREAKFAST OF grilled MINTY RICCOTA CHEESE SANDWHICH WITH TEA-Sometimes we real feel very lazy to prepare anything most of the time when we eat alone at home,..when i am alone specially when hubby is on call i dont have to worry much about cooking, because i have to just cook for myself then..this recipe is easy and anything can be used as filling i have used pudina aam chutney and minty riccota cheese for filling .
procedure for chutney-half of chopped raw mango,green chilli two,mint leaves shredded halfcup,salt to taste.garlic clove two,grind everything together in a blender, and keep in airtight box.this chutney has shelf life of 10 days if kept in fridge,for minty riccota cheese recipe click here,minty riccota cheese has shelf life of a month if kept in fridge in a air tight box. this chutney goes well with parantha too.
for the sandwhich-spread evenly pudina chutney on bread slice ,add crumbled riccota cheese on the bread and grill it on hand grill,enjoy hot with tea.
BREAKFAST DURING FESTIVALS/WITH LEFTOVER-be it any festival or pooja at our home,poori sabji halwa is regular one at our home,...during Janmashtami festival prepared poori and alloo sabji at home..for allo sabji used leftover rasam powder,i wanted to try something with rasam powder prepared from vedas blog after making rasam from lakshmis blog,and this recipe my own experiment was real yum and spicy,..and best for any festive day,..
POORI WITH MASALA ALLO
ingredients-boiled potato two,onion one chopped lengthwise,tomato chopped length wise,salt to taste ,oil to cook ,rasam powder and parsley leaves.
procedure-add rasam powder and finely chopped parsley leaves to the potatoes and mix well,heat oil in wok and shallow fry the potatoes ,add salt keep aside,in the same wok add onions followed by tomatoes,once onions start changing colour add masala coated potatoes,keep frying,once done add water and cover and cook.,once the gravy thickens serve hot with poori ,and garnish with parsley leaves before serving.
RARELY PREPARED BREAKFAST
MINI INSTANT WHEAT DOSA WITH TOMATO GOJJU-Dosa is something which i have to still master, tried with readymade batter many times but was never happy :-(,once while chatting with Lakshmi she shared some recipes of instant dosa,i thought of trying instant wheat dosa,had all the ingredients at home,for curry prepared tomato gooju from her blog which was really yummy ,for dosa batter ingredients are wheat flour,semolina,salt ,cumin seeds and currleaves,mix everything together with help of water and in a non stick tava add few drops of oil and spread the batter ,.i couldnt spread the batter properly thats why u see mini thick dosas in the picture but evening when i prepared for hubby i could spread properly,,..liked lotz with tomato gojju from Lakshmis blog i didnt had onions so just with tomatoes and best part was advay liked dosa too..SOrRY FOR SUCH A BAD PIC FRENS WITH THICK BURNT DOSA,..WHEN I PREPARE NEXT PIC WILL BE MUCH BETTER ,..BUT TASTE WAS AWESOME,.DOSA IS SOMETHING WHICH IS PREPARED QUIET RARE IN MY KITCHEN BUT NOW WITH LAKSHMIS INSTANT DOSAI RECIPES ITS gONNA BE A FREQUENT ONE,,THANKS FoR SHARING SUCH YUM RECIPES LAKSHMI,..;-)
MOST COMMON BREAKFAST IN OUR HOME -PARANTHAS
MINTY RICCOTA CHEESE PARANTHA WITH CURD AND CHUTNEY-I never thought that i could prepare so many things with minty riccota cheese which i had prepared at home,this recipe is very simple just mix finely chopped onions,salt,red chilli powder to the minty riccota cheese,filling s ready for the parantha,keep aside,knead dough with wheat flour for parantha,make marble shape of the kneaded dough,fill the mixture with help of spoon,and roll out parantha as u make the usual ones,dont apply too much pressure or the filling will come out ,roast on tava and serve hot with pudina aam chutney and curd.
BREAKFAST ON SUNDAY/BRUNCH- tofu in tandoori masala
Sunday breakfast or brunch is always heavy one,.,hubby gets up late and by the time he gets up its always 12 something ,..so sunday i always go for brunch or heavy breakfast,,,for tofu in tandoori masala recipe is very simple chop tofu and keep aside,marinate in tandoori masala for 15 minutes,in those 15 minutes chop one onion,green chilli and keep aside,heat oil in wok add half tsp cumin seeds,green chilli and onions ,once onions start changing colour add marinated tofu ,followed by salt..cover and cook,.if needed add half cup of water..enjoy hot with plain nan or roti.
BREAKFAST DUE TO CRAVINGS-This happens most of the time with me ,if i feel like eating something i have to prepare,..be it anything,..one of such craving was of hot kachodi with allo sabji ,back home when relatives come at home,kachodi with allo subji is prepared and hot jalebi is brought from sweet shop,i felt like preparing cottage cheese kachodi but had to prepare cottage cheese,..and by the time i prepare cottage cheese,,,it would have been too late..i had minty riccota cheese in fridge so thought of using minty riccota cheese instead of cottage cheese for filling,for filling mix nigella seeds,salt,red chilli powder and mix well keep aside,knead dough,make marble sized balls ,compress and just add one tsp of filling not more than that ,seal and roll out into 4 cm diameter of circle ,dont aplly too much of pressure,,and keep the margins thick thats the main difference between poori and kachodi,i usually prepare all together and then fry them together that ways it easy for me,heat oil in non stick wok,and shallow fry till brown and crips from both side,..serve hot with curry,i prepared kerala style potato curry -procedure heat oil in wok add mustard seeds,dried red chillies and curry leaves,once the mustard seeds start popping add chopped onions and fry till they are brown,add coriander,turmeric,and red chilli powder and fry further for two minutes ,add chopped tomatoes and cook further for five minutes,add salt followed by chopped potatoes,cover and cook for three minutes,add coconut milk and half cup of water ,cook for 15 minutes till gravy thickens ,serve hot with kachodi.

Mathri brings back memories of a trek I went to in Rajasthan. Food was rationed, so each person got just one Mathri and a tiny cup of chai!Surprisingly it was enough to see us through an entire day, over 12 hours and 40kilometers of a grueling trek! Thanks for the recipe.
