Instant Oats Idly

Standard

Usually I and my hubby use to have oats for breakfast. It would be in the form of porridge with milk and some fruits, but it was getting bored and so thought of trying out a new dish. May be a idly everyone including kids would like to have it.

Oats idly was soft, spongy and delicious, also it was very simple, easy and prepared in minutes. No worries of fermenting the batter, everything in minutes. Let me share the recipe…

Indian Frittata

Standard

Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette with few more ingredients like veggies or meat or pasta, based on one’s flavor. The word frittata means “fried” which means the eggs are beaten fried in skillet with fried potatoes.

I have named it as Indian Frittata, since I have induced few basic Ingredients spices like chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala to flavor the frittata. This goes out good for breakfast. Let us move on to the recipe…
