Baking lessons with Rushina

Standard

A weekend at Nature’s Basket with a vibrant food writer and consultant Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal. She also blogs at “A perfect Bite” and Rushina’s. It was a delight to watch her make those quick and easy cheesy Italian Veg Lasagna, Dried Fruit’n Nut Loaf,   Strawberry  Muffins, … amidst all the hustle-bustle of the crowd, cameraman and photographers. Last week, I did try making one of her recipes, will post the pics and the recipe soon. It turned out to be ultra fabulous 🙂

I also had the rare opportunity to meet her personally for a fleeting moment! And, I am glad I did.

Eat breakfast like a king!

Standard

Some days I prefer having a wholesome breakfast. A lavish one, with breads, cheese, jam, marmalade, eggs, juice, muffins, and of course round it up with a cup of English tea. It kick-starts my day and keeps me energized all day long. Though, it’s important to eat a heavy breakfast but it’s ideal to watch out on the nutrients, preferably a healthy-combo, otherwise the day can turn out to be really slow & sluggish. Once in a while it’s okay to indulge however!

In India, breakfast constitutes an important meal of the day and interestingly it offers a wide variety of dishes… right from the northern region to down south. Up north, it’s Stuffed Parathas (Flat breads), Chapatis, Puris, served with veg-curries, pickle, curd etc. Down south, it’s Dosas, Steamed Idlis, Upma, etc served with a wide variety of chutney and sambar.

What do you prefer having…for breakfast?
