Today’s morning quick breakfast is a super quickie and healthy breakfast – Mix Veggie Seviyan Upma (Mix Veggie Vermicelli Porridge) with Pomegranate and Adrakwali Chai (Ginger Indian Tea). Yes, it might look like a lot of work for the morning but trust me good planning and prep a day in advance for your meals can be a great saviour for working people out there or ones who have super busy mornings. In that regard I have decided on starting a series on #100healthybreakfasts which can be prepared in less than 15 minutes as requested by a lot of friends of mine. This was the 1st one from that series.
It has been an iterative process of experimenting quick meals because what I might find a quick option might not be the same for all and vice versa. I try to see the easiest way of making tasty Indian breakfast for the entire family and try to replicate that based on my experience. If you have any other ideas for quick breakfasts do drop in your ideas to me.
- 100gms of Vermicelli for 3 people
- 1 small onion
- A small bowl of mixed pulses (Chana Daal, Moong Daal, Urad Daal) – for extra protein
- 1 medium carrot
- 5 to 6 fresh beans
- Fresh or Frozen Green Peas (optional)
- 10 gms of fresh ginger
- Curry Leaves and Coriander leaves for garnishing
- Pinch of Cumin seeds
- 2 teaspoon of Vegetable Oil or 1 teaspoon of Ghee (clarified butter)
- Salt as per taste
- For this brekkie, I used pre-roasted Semolina (I roast them to store it for a longer period).
- In 1 teaspoon of ghee in a non-stick pan, I added chana daal, moong daal and urad daal to roast them very well.
- I added chopped onions, curry leaves, grated ginger, and chopped carrots and Beans (I always chop carrots and French Beans over the weekend and store it in an air tight box and use it in different recipes across the week – I will soon share a post on meal prepping for a better idea).
- Once everything cooked through, I added the vermicelli and water.
- The water dried up in less than 2 mins and I garnished it with chopped coriander leaves.
