May 10, 2017 Breakfast/Dinner  No comments

PesarattuDosai_0555

Pesarattu Dosa is a very popular breakfast recipe from Andhra Pradesh. It is very healthy and nutritious as it is made from whole moong beans. I learned this recipe from a friend. I tried it for the 1st time and we all loved it. It is a very flavourful dosa variety. One more to the Dosa basket :) Unlike the normal Dosa we do not have to ferment this Pesarattu. The only planning to be done is to soak the moong beans the previous night or for 8-10 hours.

I am a big fan of pasta & especially this Cheesy Tomato Pasta. There are many shapes of Pasta. I have tried many shapes and this Farfalle is my favourite. I usually make Tomato Pasta with homemade pasta sauce, but when not available I use tomato sauce and spice it up with seasoning just like I have done in the video. I should say this pasta tastes much better than the ones that we get in restaurants & pizza outlets. Especially here, it tastes totally bland. I had posted this recipe long back, now updated with new pics and video :)

Ven Pongal is always a favourite at home. It is a very easy to make comfort breakfast food. It is truly divine when served hot with a dollop of ghee. Ven Pongal, Vadai, Sambar & Coconut Chutney..

Kambu is a millet variety, known as pearl millet in english and bajra in hindi. It has a very unique flavour and aroma by itself. As a child, I never used to like this Kambu Dosai. But now-a-days I love these kind of recipes. To my surprise Chotu also liked it. Unlike me, he is a good child :) This Kambu Dosai does involve grinding/fermenting like the normal dosa. It is a much healthier option than the normal dosa.

Bread Besan Toast is an easy and yummy breakfast/snack that can be made in a jiffy. Unlike the Bread Bajji which is deep fried, this Bread Besan Toast is a low fat guilt free version. U just need to whisk a few ingredients, dip and coat the bread in it and toast it. How easy is that?!? If u do not eat eggs, this is the best alternative to a french toast.

Do check my other recipes with bread HERE!!
