Breakfast time is the most crucial period of the day in my household. Having a kid who has a penchant to play softball with the boiled eggs, a husband who is always in a hurry and never gets enough time for his breakfast, anybody is likely to lose her mind. Preparing the breakfast or nashta, (as we call it), is my responsibility, as I’m the last person to leave the house for my office. My cook deliberately misses this nashta time almost every day because she is well aware of the chaos and confusion created during that hour. Things become worse when I fail to manage time to have a decent breakfast to face the hectic day ahead. And, don’t take it as a ‘much ado about nothing’ syndrome because a proper healthy breakfast is very much needed to maintain a good constitution.
So, whenever I get some time, I keep on my quest for some quick, healthy and delectable breakfast recipes. I tried a lot, experimented with some but, the success rate was not at all commendable. I’ve a good reputation as far as my culinary skill is concerned, but, I really had a hard time finding suitable nashta recipes until I come across this page on Facebook.
According to me, an ideal breakfast recipe should fulfill some criteria; easy to make, healthy and nutritive, and, delicious enough to satisfy even some fussy taste buds. Kellogg’s Anaaj ka Nashta has more than 100 lip-smacking, mouth-watering recipes which can make the breakfast time wholesome and happy. I’ve tried a few with a grand success. Let me share a couple of the recipes which have become our family favourites.
Apple Cinnamon Cornflakes
One thing I must admit, before visiting this page, I didn’t have the least idea that Kellogg’s cornflakes can be used so creatively to make such delicacies. The apple-cinnamon cornflakes just needs two cups of cold milk, chopped apple cubes ( a medium size I usually take), ¼ tsp Cinnamon powder and I cup Kellogg’s cornflakes. You can add sugar if you like, my son prefers honey.
Just fill a bowl with cornflakes, add the milk, top with the apple cubes, cinnamon and sugar/honey and serve! Takes just 5 minutes and tastes heavenly. It’s now the new favourite of the kid. No more a miffed face, no more fuss. Peace at last for me.
Cabbage Corn Salad in Basil Curd Dressing
This recipe is really innovative and different. 1 cup Shredded cabbage, soaked in ice-cold water and drained, 1 cup Kellogg’s Corn Flakes, ½ cup Chopped cucumber,½ cup Chopped grapes, 1tbsp finely chopped celery. For the dressing, mix 1 cup of fresh curd, 1tbsp fresh cream, ½ tsp lemon juice, ½ tsp grated lime rind, ¼ tsp mustard powder.
The cabbage should be mixed with all other ingredients and tossed well. Just before serving, add the dressing and toss well again. Add a pinch of sugar, black pepper powder, and salt to taste.
It takes less than 15 minutes to prepare this one and, we relish on this dish.
Thanks, Kellogg’s for providing such myriad of ideas with nashta. It’s no wonder that just as Guptaji’s family, who knows how to whip up the perfect breakfast for any occasion, everyone shall be asking you for inviting them to a breakfast treat. Even I won’t mind visiting Kellogg’s waale Guptaji’s house for a delectable nashta. Oh! Don’t take me as a shameless lady. I would like to visit Guptaji’s house because #Guptajikifamily is well-known for their hospitality and, they do make yummy recipes with Kellogg’s. Just have a look at this coconut laddoos prepared by his wife. Irresistible, isn’t it?
