Scrambled Oats & Eggs.. Healthy Breakfast..umm tad bit πŸ˜

So now I understand the pain of the people staying in places with no resources… because I, the greedy foodie, is dumped in a vegetarian place having only 5-6 kind veggies:'(… Thank god! atleast we get eggs here…
But then yeah, learning a few things…baking without oven..easier recipes…πŸ™…
One fine day, my roommate made me this breakfast and I checked for the angel ring above her headπŸ‘ΌπŸ˜œ. Thank you Smaranika for this super simple recipe. 😻

Ingredients
1 pkt masala oats or 50gm rolled oats*
2 eggs
2 tbsp butter or oil

*masala oats already has spices in it. If you’re using normal rolled oats you can use your owns spices.

You can turn this “tad bit” healthy breakfast into a healthy one. Add chopped veggies, soya chunks blah blah, I made it with sprouts. Or why don’t you give it Italian flavour with cheese… Actually Chinese is better just add schezwan sauce.. 😁 and garam masala with chicken kheema will taste so yumm…
I will try a sweet version next time with fruits and nuts.😍

YO YO FRITTATA !! :P

Frittata… Such a funky name…πŸ˜‹ But then of course, it’s Italian.. πŸ™‚ It is basically a kind of rich omelette made fluffier with one or more optional ingredients..
This post is a request from a follower and a friend, who finds my recipes a bit complicated.. πŸ˜› So Ankit, this is super easy and you can modify it to an extent of using leftover veggies.😁 You can tell your friends that you had homemade “frittata” in breakfast as long as you put eggs in it… 😜

Let’s get started πŸ™‹

The recipe is for 1-2 person and you need a 7″ non stick pan for this..

INGREDIENTS
The base,
2 eggs
3 tbsp cream or milk
1 tbsp plain flour (maida) (optional)
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1 tbsp oil + 1 tbsp butter

I made it with finely chopped
veggies,
1 tsp green chilli
2 tsp garlic
2 tbsp onion
1 tbsp beetroot
3 tbsp carrots
3 tbsp French beans
3 tbsp potatoes
1/2 cup grated cheese

METHOD
1. Heat oil in the pan and saute all the chopped vegetables. Season.

2. Beat egg, milk and flour with salt and pepper in bowl.

3. Lower the flame and spread the veggies evenly.

4. Pour the egg mixture on cooked veggies and top with butter and cheese. Cover and cook for 4-5 minutes on a very low heat. This will rise a lot after it is cooked. ( Will settle a bit later).

Enjoy this yummy breakfast with a piece of toast or garlic bread.. πŸ˜€

You can use leftover chicken, stir fried veggies… Bacon, sliced potatoes, paneer.. Almost everything.. 😝

If you want to double the recipe then you will need a bigger size pan and it will be easier to finish the frittata in oven because there is a chance of burningΒ atΒ the bottom..

I hope I delivered as promised.. 😌

TRICOLOR PARATHA… Woohooo!!!

Paratha is a flat bread that we Indians love to eat. It is a very common food item here, especially in North India. There are ‘n’ numbers of version Β of a paratha. Ask any mother here and she will tell you a different one. So I won’t say that this is a recipe of paratha, it is just an idea to feed some nutrition into people like me who hate spinach and beetroot. 😁I mean who doesn’t like colours. It looks beautiful and tastes nothing like the veggies. Moreover, you don’t have to serve loads of dishes with it, only curd or pickle would do (you can if you want to 😜). It is easy to make (if you have a food processor), tasty and healthy. Children will love it (you don’t have to tell them that it has beetroot and spinach :D).

Ingredients
4 cups whole wheat flour

2 cups plain flour

3 tbsp oil + oil for shallow frying

1/2 cup beetroot puree

1/2 cup blanched spinach puree

1 tsp onion seeds

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp coriander powder

Salt, to taste

Method
1. Make 3 dough adjusting the liquid content,

a) 2 cups plain flour, onion seeds, salt, 1 tbsp oil and water.

b) 2 cups whole wheat flour, coriander powder, salt, 1 tbsp oil and spinach puree.

c) 2 cups whole wheat flour, garam masala, salt, Β 1 tbsp oil and beetroot puree.

(Do it in the same sequence so that you don’t have to clean the food processor every time)

2. Roll each dough flat, about 2 cm thick.

3. Arrange the dough on top of each other. Green at the bottom and pink on top.

4. Roll in a cylindrical shape. Cut circles with a sharp knife πŸ”ͺdusted with flour (1 inch thick).

5. Roll them out with a rolling pin. Fry on tawa or pan with 1 tbsp oil (each paratha) on medium heat.

Serve hot with curd or pickle or any chutney.
Doesn’t this looks great? πŸ™‚ Every layer will have different flavor from the spices.

I hate spinach, I hate beetroot.. But I absolutely love this! 😍

Tea time!! Oatmeal muffins..

These were my first healthy muffins and I loved it! You can’t eat those regular unhealthy-yet-tasty muffins everyday. But what to do? I can’t stay without baking and having those gorgeous freshly baked cakes. One of the blogs I follow Visual Blog came to my rescue. And here I present healthy oatmeal muffins. Comparison of regular and these muffins isn’t fare. Both have different tastes (I have decided to make these often) . Recipe inspired by the same blog. Thanks ☺

6 tbsp roasted oats
2 tbsp butter
2 eggs
2 tbsp chopped chocolates
2 tbsp roasted nuts
4 tbsp sweetened condensed milk (you can use honey but my mother told that heating honey isn’t healthy, makes it toxic)
2 tsp coffee powder
Cherries πŸ’,Β  Chocolate sauce optional

Method
1. Preheat the oven at 180Β°C.

2. Cream the butter. Mix one egg at a time.

3. Add rest of the ingredients except oats and mix well.

4. Fold-in roasted oats just before baking else the batter will be dry.

5. Transfer into greased moulds (not more than an inch) and bake for 20 mins. You can also bake it in a pan and later cut with cookie cutter.

These will be little dry and less sweet so goes perfectly with tea 🍡. Or else serve with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, ice cream.. anything. :)
