Instant Wheat Dosa | Gothambu Dosa

Instant Wheat Dosa | Gothambu Dosa  The quick breakfast remedy.

Instant wheat dosa is a life saver in my house on days when I wake up late or just am a little too sleep deprived to make a time consuming breakfast.

There are a few varieties of Wheat dosa that I have seen. Some versions are more savory, incorporating spice and other fresh ingredients. Some adding a bit of plain flour, semolina, dal or rice flour.

However, I prefer them with just wheat flour (Aata), water, ghee and salt! That’s just four ingredients! And you dont have to soak anything, grind anything or chop anything! Simply whisk everything together, heat your pan (tawa) and make just like you would make regular dosas. It goes well with any curry (especially coconut milk based curries) or if you prefer sweet, simply serve with coconut milk and sugar! I personally love it with my tomato curry and some simply dry black chick peas (Kala Chana/ Kadala) or Ghee Roasted Chicken.

Fried Bee Hoon Breakfast

bee hoon breakfast

Fried Bee Hoon Breakfast – Fully Loaded!

In our house, Bee hoon is a staple breakfast item. Bee hoon is Rice Vermicelli, which is easily available in the dried form. Soaked briefly in hot water, it is ready to use and the possibilities are endless. It can be made much the same way as fried rice. However it is ‘lighter’ . I like to use Mung Bean Noodles (Glass Noodles) along with the rice vermicelli, I like the flavor better this way. Here is a really quick breakfast that you can make, packed with lots of veggies. Great thing is even the kids seem to like this one! Although the name FRIED Bee soon gives you the idea of some kind of greasy, unhealthy dish, this uses very little oil and is basically a stir-fry. Brown rice vermicelli is available for an even healthier breakfast but it just isn’t the same!

Kanda Poha | Quick Indian Breakfast with Pressed Rice (Rice Flakes)

Kanda Poha is a quick and nutritious breakfast made with pressed rice. It is an absolute breeze to prepare and you can have a nice, hot and savory breakfast in a jiffy! Kanda refers to the chopped onions used in this dish. Potatos are often added to the dish as well, but I often skip this step if I am in a hurry. I tried cashews, peanuts and almonds for this recipe. I prefer the taste of peanuts. Although this is a staple Breakfast item, it makes for a great tea time snack as well!

Oats Pongal |Indian Oats Recipes | Quick Breakfast

 

Oats Pongal is a super quick savory breakfast which is a healthier and simplified version of the Rice Pongal.

Pongal’ is a festival celebrated in Southern India to celebrate the Harvest Season.   ‘Pongal’ is a derivation of the word  ‘Pong’,  which means to ‘boil over’ or ‘spill over’.

There are two dishes associated with this festival. One savory and one sweet. The savory version is called Ven Pongal (White Pongal) or Khara Pongal (Spicy Pongal). It is a very common breakfast item in parts of  the South. The sweet version is called Sakkara Pongal (Sweet Pongal).

If the dish is simply called  ‘Pongal’ it is referring to the Savory Version. The savory version is a very satisfying and quick breakfast ( or anytime) dish. It is often served with Chutney , Sambar and ‘Vadai’ (lentil fritters).

In our home, the day starts very early. I need to make breakfast and pack lunches by 6:30 am. Anyone in the same shoes will know how important it is to have a few quick breakfast dishes that you can prepare even when you are half asleep. Trying to make healthier breakfast in the morning, I often use oats and quinoa.

This Oats Pongal Recipe is so simple to make and keeps you feeling fully loaded and ready to go! Perfect for those who like a quick, savory breakfast.

Onion Rava Dosa / Thosai – Quick and Simple

Onion Rava Dosa / Thosai – Quick and Simple 

  This dosa recipe is great because  there’s no soaking, no grinding and you don’t need to wait overnight to make the dosa! Mix the ingredients. Do a quick tempering. Let it sit for fifteen tot twenty minutes and you’re set to make dosa as usual. Plain rava dosa is ok, but onion rava dosa adds some flavor and texture that I find more appetizing for breakfast. The onion is minced finely and cooked along with the batter well – so it doesn’t have the raw onion effect –  don’t worry.
