Quick Breakfast Recipes
Breakfast is called so because it breaks a night-long fast. It is the most important meal of the day, because we have not eaten anything overnight, for around 10-12 hours, and in the morning we need to replenish our body’s energy and nutrient reserves, to gear up for the new day!
Most of us agree with the fact that breakfast is an absolute necessity, no negotiation whatsoever. However, in the dizzying hurry that we all are in, so many of us head out without having our breakfast. Just a cup of coffee or tea and we are off. This is an absolute no-no! Even if you got up late, were too busy or simply feeling lazy, there is no acceptable excuse for not having breakfast.
That said, we cannot deny the fact that mornings are the busiest part of the day and most of us hardly have time. So, we have come up with a selection of quick and easy breakfast recipes, which you can make even when you are too busy. There are loads of options for those who have their breakfast at home, and some choices even for those who eat it on-the-go or carry it to office in a dabba.
7 Steps to plan your breakfast
1. Plan your breakfast the previous day, so that you can keep the ingredients ready to save time in the morning.
2. Planning ahead also increases the options you have, because you will have time to soak, grind or ferment batters.
3. Choose recipes that use ingredients available at home or at least easily available in local shops.
4. During the weekend, make a list of 7 items that you can make for the 7 days of the week so that you do not have to waste time every day on deciding the menu. This will also help you to finish your ingredients shopping at one go.
5. Theplas can be made in advance and used for 2 to 3 days. There are also some dishes like Aloo Paratha that can be prepared and stored in the deep-freezer, to cook and serve easily in the mornings.
6. You can also prepare and deep-freeze some common ingredients like mashed potatoes.
7. You can also prepare accompaniments like chutneys when you find time in the weekend and refrigerate them, to save time on weekdays.
Once you have decided on the week-long menu, the next step is to do your ingredient shopping. Then, each night, look at what you have planned for the next day, and keep everything ready, so that in the morning you can start cooking right away without bothering about dough and batters! Here are some specific pointers, on how to plan ahead for foods like paratha, upma, etc.
