Bread Upuma

Breakfast is very important meal and for me I love it to be a savory one vs. a sweet one.. I can enjoy Bread and jam, but would prefer other recipes with breads that are savory.. This bread upuma is a quick and easy breakfast or tiffin item. It is pieces of bread mixed with masala and spices and tastes delicious..The recipe will serve 2. The total time taken for this recipe is under 15 minutes. For this Vegan Thursday, I chose this very versatile bread upuma.

Vendayakeerai Parupu Urundai Morkuzhambu - SNC Challenge

So excited to be part of the SNC group which is created by Divya. Idea here is the group is divided into 2 and then each group challenges the other group with a recipe. Now from the Southern team, it is my turn this month to challenge my friends from the North team.

Vendayakeerai Parupu Urundai Mor Kuzhambu – This is a very flavorful and authentic preparation and tastes best when served HOT!!!
I have given the translation in English / Hindi for most of the ingredients. So the name means – Vendayakeerai is Methi / Fenugreek leaves, Parupu means Dal / Lentil, urundai means round or balls and Morkuzhambu is a gravy made with curd.Please email me at nivedhanams@gmail.com if you have any questions…

Eggless Jam Swirled Muffins / Eggless Nutella Swirled Muffins

Want a breakfast or food on the go in a jiffy? I am sure a lot of us say yes.. These muffins are so perfect for it. A delicious and very pretty looking muffins was suggested by Priya for this month's Eggless Baking Group which is started by Gayathri. It was a quick and easy one and you get a lot of points for those swirls. Wanted to get the picture with the muffin opened (like the interior), but it was gone by then!!! The original recipe had eggs and I replaced them with Egg replacer and little extra baking soda
