I am pretty excited as I write this one. Eight like minded bloggers together have started a blog hop and this is our first one. So let me start right away. We will be working on a particular theme, twice a month and its ” Breakfast ” in the beginning. I am making our very own Upma here today.(more…)
Every morning it is a dilemma what has to be served for the kids, before they leave for school. The time is quite early to have a heavy breakfast nor can they be sent with just a glass of milk. This sandwich can be easily made and served.
bread slices 12
pepper powder 1/4 tsp
fresh coconut 1 small bowl
green chilly 2
coriander leaves 1/2 bowl
mint leaves 1/2 bowl
Mix butter, a pinch of salt and pepper powder together in a bowl.
Grind coriander leaves, mint leaves, fresh coconut, green chilly and salt together . Avoid making it too hot.
Wash and cut veggies into round circles and keep aside.
Onions need to be cut into fine thin circles.
Now, take two slices of bread and smear the butter paste with a knife. Then apply some mint chutney on both the slices.
Keep veggies on one slice and close with the other.
Serve with tomato ketchup.

Idli are an all time favourite for many of us. I love making this one, as they are soft and supple. There may be a variation in other recipe as this is modified by me.They make an ideal breakfast with sambar and chutney. Why is this named as “Chennai Idli” ? Chennai is a place in South India,it is the capital city of the state of Tamilnadu. It is here, they were first made and was very famous for these soft and supple idlis.
