There are more chefs on Sundays and starvers on Mondays owing to the absence of time for preparation and energy to do the cleaning. Here are three quick and healthy recipes that you can give a try to have a full stomach and a relaxed mind.

For breakfast

Mornings are always rushed and drowsy with sleep still clinging on to the corner of our eyes and the alarm ringing at the corner of our bed. With the chaos of the morning, it feels easier to skip the most important meal of the day.

Egg Dosa

With two tablespoons of rice batter and an egg, this dish takes only 3 minutes to make and provides a healthy and filling breakfast.

-  In a pan pour two tablespoons of batter and spread it to form a circle

-  Crack an egg on top of the steaming dosa. Add salt and pepper as per taste.

-  Flip it and serve it hot

Paired with coconut chutney, it makes an amazing breakfast combo. You can have it with Podiand oil too.
