Vegetable Idli Upma Recipe| Easy Breakfast Recipes

Can anything ever live up to a breakfast of soft steaming hot fluffy idlies? I doubt it. But when there are people like Mr.P in the universe who screw up their faces in disgust when some one so much as mentions idlies, then you have to resort to making something else with idlies. And that s the situation at home. So i am usually left with a few idlies after i ve had my share. I m a idli fanatic by the way.

Mashed Potato Curry Recipe| Poriyal and Thoran Recipes

Often its simple food that wins hearts. Not expansive menus or dishes that cant be pronounced without rolling your tongue in so many million ways. This potato onion curry is testimony to that. While we are not great potato fans at home here, i make this curry just to cheer us up on a cold lousy day or when i really dont have the mood to whip up a huge spread for dinner. Its easy, quick and can be enjoyed just as it is with some hot rice and ghee or with some rasam and rice. You can use up the leftovers next day to make a nice grilled sandwich or a wrap with some parathas and spiced yogurt. I learnt this recipe from my mom in law and its such a break from the routine potato podimas or potato fry. Personally, i love this curry mixed into hot rice and a generous dollop of ghee ( wink wink). Besides, its the perfect thing to be relished on a rainy night.
