Simple & Quick Egg Rice

Hello friends,
We all usually make egg fried rice, but this is not the egg fried rice. This is the egg rice from chef Dhamodharans book. Though I do not have his book with me, I have been doing this egg rice for years. The only reason is it can be made in no time and one healthy pot of meal. This egg rice is very simple and perfect to make in the morning rush and pack for lunch. Try it and enjoy it guys…

Simple Semiya/Vermicelli Upma/Semiya Upma Recipe/Vermicelli Upma Recipe with step by step photos

This is a very simple and quick semiya upma which takes about 15 – 20 min to cook. I have added tomatoes because I like the tangy taste of it and my kids also like it this way. You can very well replace tomatoes with lemon juice. This is a very simple version of semiya upma without vegetables, I make it when I am lazy to cut vegetables and when I am in a time crunch. I will post semiya upma with vegetables in my future post. Meanwhile do check out other interesting and healthy Breakfast Recipes here.

Spinach Chapathi/Palak Chapathi/Green Chapathi/Spinach Chapathi Recipe with step by step photos

Here’s a very healthy chapathi made with spinach. It is always hard to get my daughter to eat the greens. Since she loves chapathis I try to make it with spinach or incorporate any other greens and give it to her. The only secret is whatever I make I should never reveal that it has healthy food hidden in it. But that doesn’t matter to me, unless and until they eat the food without wasting them. This spinach chapathi is a very flavourful, colourful and healthy chapathis which your kids will surely love. Meanwhile do check out other interesting and healthy Breakfast Recipes here.

Grape Juice - Easy Summer Drink

I mostly prefer to make fresh juice at home rather than juice from shops which has the preservatives or from concentrate. Grapes help in treating fatigue, indigestion, constipation, kidney disorders and prevent cataracts. This delectable fruit is rich in vitamins A, C, B6 and folate along with other essential minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorous, magnesium and selenium. Grapes contain very powerful antioxidants that help in slowing down ageing and reduce the damage caused by free radicals. So make sure to have grapes as such or in the form of juice to lead a healthy and active life.
