Palak & Egg Burji (Breakfast Recipe)

A quick rush to work calls for a faster cooking menu. "Egg" does behave a sincere saver in such cases
My Kids don't have a immediate liking for spinach, however I keep identifying  ways to camouflage them and use. It just happened when kids asked for scrambled egg for breakfast, I chopped the spinach and after sauteing added them like coriander. Little did anyone realize it was not coriander ! 

I have been ever since trying to make this highly nutritious food a compulsion in my weekly menu !You can add grated carrots by all means, I had to omit has I did not have stock and obviously cant have my mornings to such leisure chores :)

We also make it for dinner at times..It is a multipurpose recipe !

Vegetable Jalfrezi (Mixed Vegetable Sabzi)

More for the look of the vegetables, I like this particular recipe.Am an sincere veg-freak , I relish recipes that get these vegetables closer to reality and Jalfrezi gets them in real big chunks. The advantage here is apart from the masala the taste of vegetable itself is so evident owing to their large size that it ends up giving a rather refreshing taste !

Tomato -1
Garlic - 3-4 pods (chopped)

Turmeric Powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste

2. Heat oil in pan. Add Jeera to it and allow to splutter. Add chopped garlic.

3. Finally add potato first.fry for 3 minutes.Add all masalas- Jeera pwd, dhania pwd, turmeric pwd and Red chilli pwd.

4.Followed by capsicum and tomato. again stir fry for 2 minutes. add salt and mix well.
