Breakfast Event Entries at Simple Indian Food !!

These are my entries for the Breakfast Event at Simple Indian Food

Since one is an old entry, I'm reposting them...

I tried this for a breakfast last week.. Turned out yummy and soft

2 cups wheat flour
1/4 tbsp crushed dry mint leaves (you can use fresh instead).. take desired quantity
1/4 cup curds
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 mashed potato (small)
2-3 tbsp oil

Knead all the ingredients with adequate water.
Then, cook them like your regular theplas / rotis.


Here's an easy snack, which I end up making once a week. With the batter made the previous night (for convenience only..), it can be churned out as a quick breakfast

Nachni / Ragi Flour (2 cups)
Chopped tomatoes and onions (1 cup)
Some chopped chillies and coriander leaves
Ginger Garlic Paste (if you like)
A few pinches of turmeric powder, red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder (if you like)
Salt to taste

Mix all the above ingredients, and add water as per the consistency you like. Here's a pic of the batter..

Grease a non stick pan / tawa with a little oil, and pour as if making an 'uttappa'

This is quite heathly, since it is not fried, and Nachni is supposed to be very healthy.

As a variant, you could use part 'gram flour / chana atta / besan' and part nachi.
Also, you can make the same thing using a mix of moong dal paste (soaked and ground) and/ or 'gram flour / chana atta / besan'



  1. Naina, both the dishes sound interesting and healthy...thanks for participating

  2. That looks good, I like the mint flavor :)
