Aval milk

This one’s new to me alright! I categorized it as a breakfast and a dessert, coz I think it would fit both. STB doesn’t yet have a category for refreshing drinks…hmmm. – Anu This is a local quencher found in Northern Kerala. If you happen to be in any village in Kerala, then you can […]

Idli upma

There’s nothing quite like remembering out of the blue one of grandma’s recipes, trying it out and hoping it brings back just what you tasted and felt all those years ago. Idli upma. We’d come home from school, hungry, and if she gave us idlis, wrinkle our noses at them coz we’d had them for […]

Maples and syrup and fruit

I got this lovely little bottle in the shape of a maple leaf filled with the yumminess of maple syrup from a good friend that made a Friday last month! My kids don’t like pancakes, so that leaves me with all of it (wicked, I know!). But seriously I have a large bottle of the […]

The bagel that grew into breakfast overnight

During the wee hours of a very full and tiring Saturday night (technically Sunday morning) I knew breakfast or brunch on Sunday morning may be a lost cause so I resigned myself to the sparsity of bagel and coffee in lieu of a fuller Sunday breakfast. Just as I dropped into the land of nod […]

Cereality, totally fantasy

Cereal in a box instead of a bowl? Takeaway cereal? Cereal parfait? No fantasy. It’s for real at Cereality, a cereal bar and cafe. And if you love cereal the way I do, it is a fantasy come true…sigh. I can eat cereal for breakfast, as a mid-morning snack, or evening snack (only not the plain […]

Pan Fried Rainbow Trout

I grew up eating fish for dinner and lunch but seldom for breakfast. The only exception were the rare occasions when mum decided that we were going to have left over fish curry and dosas. As an adult, fish has become one of my favorite breakfasts, fried Rainbow Trout in particular.  See full recipe

Chunky Apple Muffins

This recipe is from a 600 page cook book I found at a sale in Philadelphia, and insisted on carting back to Bangalore. I am particularly kicked with this recipe, because I used the spiced buttermilk available all over Bangalore. (Amul Masti)… I deviated from the original recipe by not adding salt and less cinnamon, […]

Moonstruck Egg in Toast

Egg and toast always has takers. This egg is not “on” or “with” the toast but IN toast. I stumbled across it while watching a movie over a decade ago and it has been a tried and true keeper in about 15 different variations but this one is my favorite. See full recipe.

Spinach and egg white sandwich

This (and a few more to come) is a recipe for a couple of pals who are going to be eating for two for the next few months! But it’s great even otherwise! This sandwich will make a great breakfast or even the second course of a lunch, after a hearty soup. Cooking time: 15 […]

Baked Eggs & Toast

A quikie yummy breakfast says Harini… and this is her recipe. I have to agree! The idea of warm, fresh toast is something I love to wake up for. And with eggs, ask for no more! And this recipe is simple and full of flavour. This will taste great with some mushrooms added along with […]
