Breakfast Recipes, Veg Indian Breakfast Recipes

Indian breakfast recipes, breakfast recipes. We all know the common saying ‘Breakfast like a king, lunch like a common man, and dinner like a pauper!’ but have you ever wondered why? We do not eat anything through the night, that is, we fast all night. In the morning, we need to break this fast with nutritious and energy-packed food. Breakfast is like fuel for our body and mind. Having a good sumptuous breakfast can keep you cheerful, energetic and attentive all day long. It can also help you manage your weight better, because breakfast kick-starts your metabolism the right way and avoids binging on calorie-laden snacks in the mid-morning. In short, breakfast makes you beautiful inside and out.

5 Facts about Breakfast

1. Breakfast must be had within two hours of waking up.

2. Apart from energy, your breakfast should be rich in nutrients like calcium, iron, B-vitamins, protein and fibre. So try to include lots of veggies, fruits and nuts in your breakfast.

3. If you are to take five cups of fruits and veggies each day, try to include at least one cup during breakfast.

4. Research shows that those who have breakfast regularly are more likely to be in the ideal weight range as their metabolism is better. Weight-watchers – take care never to skip breakfast again. It’s the tastiest way to good health.

5. As breakfast provides the brain with glucose at the right time, it improves cognitive function. Those who breakfast regularly have good memory and concentration. They are also able to lead a happier, stress-free life as a well-fuelled brain manages moods better!

How to plan your breakfast...

1. Plan your breakfast menu for the whole week in the weekend itself so that you can finish your shopping at one go. This will also give you enough time to prepare batters, masalas, etc.

2. At least make sure you decide the previous evening, so that you can do the soaking, grinding and other preparations earlier.

3. Choose items that you and your family will enjoy having, so that your day will start on a cheerful mood.

4. Ensure a good variety. You will get bored if you have the same cereals, idlis or parathas every day. So pick flavourful breakfasts from different cuisines, so there is a delightful surprise on the table each morning.

5. Try to have breakfast together, so that the family gets some time to bond before diving headlong into the busy day.

6. If any of you have to leave early, plan to make breakfasts that can be had on-the-go or packed in a tiffin dabba, so that they can still have their breakfast on time. No compromise!

7. On oh-so-busy days, work in at least a milkshake or a smoothie to make sure you do not step out on an empty stomach.

Upma in A MicrowaveUpma in A Microwave

Many households have microwave ovens these days. A busy morning is just the right time to put it to good use, to churn out a tasty breakfast. Imagine those days when there is milk on one burner of your stove, lunch dishes on other burners, and ultimately when you are done with all that you realise there is no time to make breakfast. Let your appliances come to your aid. Pop some ingredients into your microwave and go get ready for work. When you are ready, so is your breakfast. Sit with your family, enjoy the meal, and head out with confidence.

Despite all that planning, there are days when you just don’t have time for breakfast. Keep some stuff ready on hand to aid on those days. Keep a jar of homemade jam handy so that you can spread some on your toast and gulp it down. Make yourself a quick milkshake or smoothie.

Quick breakfast cereals

Healthy Peanut Almond Milk OatmealHealthy Peanut Almond Milk Oatmeal

Although having cereals for breakfast is not a native Indian habit, it is one of the practices we have imbibed from continental, American and other cuisines. Sure, it might not be as chatpata as our desi breakfasts, but it definitely comes to our aid on a busy morning. A bowl of cereals topped with milk or curds and loads of fruits and nuts is not only tasty but also sumptuous and super healthy.

{ad11}

Though different commercial brands of cereals are readily available in the market, it is healthier and tastier if you make it at home. So, whenever you find time, you can make a batch of muesli or other cereal mix and keep it handy in a jar. When you do not have time, just fill a bowl with cereals and enjoy a nutritious breakfast.
1. Muesli
2. Banana Apple Porridge
3. Chocolate Oatmeal Recipe
4. Healthy Instant Oatmeal
5. Healthy Peanut Almond Milk Oatmeal

Vegans, you are not short of choices in any way! There are loads of Indian breakfast recipes like Poha, Upma, Idli, etc., which do not use any milk products, honey or other animal products.

1. Oatmeal Almond Milk with Apples
2. Rice and Moong Dal Idli
3. Strawberry Steel Cut Oats with Tea Masala

Breakfast Beverages

Masala ChaiMasala Chai

There are some beverages like smoothies, milkshakes and juices that can be your breakfast itself. And then there are some that make breakfast a complete experience like coffee, tea, chaas or lassi. South Indians cannot think of breakfast without coffee, while North Indians like their cup of tea. A Punjabi breakfast is incomplete without lassi while a glass of chaas or jaljeera would make breakfast more palatable in the summer!

{ad12}

1. South Indian filter coffee
2. Indian tea, chaai
3. Masala Chaai
4. Jaljeera
5. Chaas
6. Mango Lassi

Let breakfast be a time for your family to bond. By making recipes from different regions, you can also make it a window into different cultures! Start each day on a wonderfully peppy note, and see how beautifully the day progresses.

Happy Cooking!
