Lauki Thepla | Aam Chunda | Rasawala Khaman | Adrak wali Chai

On weekends the morning converts into pre-noon and breakfast converts into brunch. Brunch, as the name suggests is a combination of breakfast and lunch. The brunch cannot be light such as poha or upma because, by the time you sit down to eat, you are hungry enough and popular and favorite breakfasts such as khaman or khandvi don’t work. And if you serve butter paneer masala and butter naan at 12 O noon, that too won’t work. Okay, no one would do that, I know, what I am trying to say is that the regular lunch items such as chapatis, dal or sabzis are too much for that hour.

Here is a combination of recipes that is so perfect for Brunch recipes. Slightly filling lauki theplas served with instant aam chunda and for the little space left in the tummy after this, there is juicy, sweet, tangy and yummy rasawala khaman. No breakfast or Brunch recipes can come to an end without a cup of tea, so adrak wali chai.

These recipes won’t take much of your time. Just make sure you have some chunda ready. This is a super healthy combination. These dishes you will love for a nice brunch. The combination will keep you full till your dinner. Do try it for a weekend brunch.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
