    Fruits for Break fast.

    You can have Orange fruit or Orange juice as your break fast.
    As per my Doctor Oranges are having the capacity to remove fat/fight with our body fat.

    So he recomended me to have 1 orange fruit or 1 cup of orange juice as my break fast or to have with my break fast.

    You can also try this.

    Half cooked Veg. for Break fast.

    Cook a plate full of cut French Beans in a MW for 2 -3 min.
    Sprinkle salt and powdered black pepper on that and eat as it is.

    You can have Cauliflower also like this. Cauliflower is more delicious than beans.

    But again beans helps us to reduce fat.

    Idly

    Idly is another south Indian delicacy, which is low calorie because it is steamed.

    Soak 2 1/2 cups of raw rice, 1 cup Udad dal or 2 cups of boiled rice and 1cup Udad dal.

    Or you can use 3 cups of boiled rice, 1 cup raw rice and 1 cup Udad dal.
    Soak dal and rice separately.

    Grind them separately and after that mix well.

    Add salt and keep aside for more than 12 hours.

    Generally we prepare the dough in the evening and make Idly in the morning.
    Make Idly by using the 'Idly plates' .

    If you are not having Idly plates, no problem.

    You can use small cups or you can us cooker's inner vessel to make idlies.

    Grease them before pouring the idly batter.

    Serve with sambar or any Chutney

    Kanchepuram Idly



    This is also a nutritional break fast. In this we are adding more dal than the usual once. And adding spices.


    To prepare this idly soak 1 cup rice and 3/4 cup udad dal. Equal also you can put.
    Soak them in a bowl and grind them together.
    Grind cores. Add salt and mix well
    Keep aside for 12 hours and in the morning add crushed black pepper, asafetida powder, crushed cumin seeds, curry leaves and dried and powdered ginger. (suku)
    Add one spoon liquid ghee and 1 spoon oil and mix well.
    Then start preparing idly.
    No need for side dishes and if you want use curd as side dish.
