Healthy Breakfast Recipes Step by Step – We all know the fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives the energy to work by kick-starting our metabolism. Skip breakfast and you will be performing at less than 100%. I can explain this with my example. I try to take good food pictures, for that, I would go on changing the crockery, etc until I am happy with the shot. Further, I shoot recipes in the morning because I love to take pictures in the natural light. If I get over engaged and skip my breakfast, I feel exhausted too soon and I end up with very average pictures without trying to change the background or crockery for better food pictures. Yes, this is the effect of skipping breakfast on my productivity and believe me it hampers everyone’s capacity. To fully charge yourself with a healthy breakfast before you step out to take on the world. Here is a collection of Healthy Breakfast Recipes for you and me (smile).

Doodhi muthia also known as lauki muthia is a very tasty and nutritious recipe from the state of Gujarat. The word muthia comes from the word “mutthi” which means fist. The dough is given shapes using a fist. In order to make doodhi muthia, the dough is steamed. And steaming is a very healthy cooking option. Doodhi as in bottle gourd is not a kids’ favorite thing. So this recipe is a great way to include the very healthy bottle gourd (lauki) into their diet. Doodhi muthia is very flavourful and the tempering gives such a nice crunch to each bite. Another muthia recipe, especially for the winters is methi muthia.

Idli pakora is soft idli dipped and fried in a lentil batter. The contrast of softness and crunch is something to go for.

It is so because we are not deep frying the pakoras instead we will be frying them in minimum oil using an appam pan, which is very easily available in the market. One more healthy Indian breakfast recipe with mini idlis is vegetable idli.

Moong Dal Toast is a good break from other toasts and an innovative way of enjoying the moong dal cheela. The dal batter is spread on bread slices and then pan fried.

To take a break from bread pakoras I started making besan toasts and then to take a break from besan toast I have been making moong dal toasts. And so far haven’t felt a need for a break. Another way to twist moong dal cheela is by stuffing it and making stuffed moong dal cheela.

One more nutritious sandwich is paneer sandwich.
