A Cold Winter Morning & Bachelor Breakfast Feast

March 11, 2013 31 Comments

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A good breakfast ensures a good start. Well I miss it almost everyday so I thought of compensating my missed breakfast mornings with an elaborate spread. I called a friend over- another "out of home, away from family" hungry bachelor. 

"Rice Bran Oil" what is that? asked my friend.
Me: Ah well, its an oil
My Friend: I can read it too but never heard of it. Don't tell me are you gonna cook with it?
Me: Yes, off course. So what do you wanna eat?
Friend: What happened to all that Olive and other fancy oils that you bought last time? 
Me: They all are there but today is our "Rice Bran Oil morning"! Are you ready?
Friend: Err, Ahem, I dunno how will it taste, never tried. Besides I am too ambitious with breakfast today, let not your experimentation spoil it.
Me: Don't worry. Let me know your pick- Indian or continental?
Friend: Whatever. I really wonder what all you can make from it
Me: Everything, almost everything. Watch out.

Breakfast with Rice Bran Oil

The recipes that I am sharing here is primarily a bachelor's joy and quite a staple diet at many Indian households. Yes, I can cook exotic stuff with it but frankly, I would like to experiment with stuffs that I eat more regularly, using oil. I tried to bring a variety for the sake of this contest. The Recipes are-

  1. Masala Oats Upma on a bed Chilli Onion Garnish & tangy tamarind chutney
  2. Green Egg Omelette
  3. Almond Suji ka Sira (yes you read it right!)

Masala Oats Upma

  • A packet of Quaker Masala Oats
  • Chopped Onion, Green Chilies, Parsley, Garlic, Mushroom (optional)
  • Fortune Rice Bran Oil
  • Tamarind chutney and Other Veggies (optional)
Cooking Time: 10 mins

  • Take a pan, pour a small teaspoon of oil, add masala oats and stir it for few seconds. 
  • Tame a cup of water, bringing it to boil and cook till oats are done and soak all water.
  • Transfer the cooked oats to a serving plate
  • Take a small pan, grease it with a tbsp of oil, add Fennel and allow to splutter
  • Now add the chopped onions (long & slender), green chili and garlic and toss it for 2 minutes till onion become translucent. If you are a mushroom lover, add mushroom to it.
  • Spread some Tamarind chutney on top bed of oats and add a layer of cooked onions.
  • Garnish with fresh Parsley. Ready to eat

Green Egg Omelette
  • Two eggs- beaten
  • Fine chopped Spring Onions, Green chilies, Parsley, Coriander, Green Olives & Jalapenos (optional), Feta Chese
  • Rice Bran oil
  • Salt as per taste

Cooking Time: 10 mins

  • Take a bowl and beat eggs till it turn fully yellow. Add Salt, Greens, onions and others
  • Take a pan, grease it with oil and once suitably heated, spread the half of raw egg mix on it.
  • Pour a thick paste of green chutney along the corners and top it with other residual egg barter
  • Grease the corners with little oil and allow omelette to cook. Garnish with Feta chese shreds or cut them into small cubes and serve along
  • Served with Tomato Ketchup...Finished within a minute

Almond Suji ka Sira
  • Suji (Semolina)
  • Sugar, 1 cup of milk & 3 cups of hot water
  • Rice bran oil
  • Almond (soaked & fine crushed), Green Cardamom seeds

Cooking Time: 15 mins

  • Take a wok, add some oil (depending on the amount of Sira you want to make, I used 3 tbsp)
  • Add some sugar, Suji and stir it till suji turns golden brown
  • Add milk in the fine crushed almond paste, mix and add them to semolina.
  • Stir it for some time, add water and keep stirring. The best part of Sira is how well you stir it.
  • Once cooked, take it off flame and serve garnishing with cardamom seeds.

The recipe is simple to sound and make but quintessential part of Indian households including guest house etc. Bachelors would just freak out on it. Hope you like it. Do share your comments below.

    I am not suggesting your cοntent isn't solid, however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "A Cold Winter Morning & Bachelor Breakfast Feast" is kinda vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's front page аnd see hοw they ωгite article heаdlines to grab viеwers to open the linκs.
    You might try addіng a video or a related ρic or twо to gеt reаders іnteresteԁ аbout everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier. More Information and facts
