dried green peas for breakfast



i realize that most of my recipes are meant for breakfast........probably because i realized after starting on my weight loss regime , that it is important to have a tasty n wholesome breakfast.......( earlier i used to delay my breakfast so much that sometimes i forgot to have one....i was so engrossed in other things at that time...) a very very unhealthy practice.........

later i experienced that if you eat a healthy n wholesome breakfast.....( as colorful as possible for me).....it keeps you happy n active throughout the day...........why we forget the fact that a good breakfast early in the morning boosts up the metabolic rate for the whole day............it helps when the breakfast is fuss free as it is more likely to be had on time ..........at least on week days..............

also some of my breakfast recipes serve as anytime meals as they are easy to rustle up............i am hooked to such recipes right now ........for many reasons.........

for this recipe you just need a cup of dried green peas , soak it for 3-4 hrs and boil in a pressure cooker with 2 cups of water and salt to taste.......after boiling it can be kept in the fridge for 2 days........it can be made into a salad , a chat , or a hummus like dip.............it is so tasty that you will want to use it in many ways.......one recipe i have already posted in the past(dry green peas ghugni with papdi)..........

this recipe is a salad and my add ons this time are 8-10 cherry tomatoes quartered,1 red onion chopped,2 green chillies chopped, 2 tbsp chopped green coriander leaves and a tbsp of lemon juice .....mix all of the ingredients together and have it as a healthy fat free breakfast...........can be served warm or cold and a toasted brown or multigrain bread goes well with it........
