It is always challenging to make an interesting and healthy breakfast everyday. The items that frequent my kitchen during breakfast are Indori Kanda Poha, Avarekalu Uppittu, Upma, Shavage Upma, Ukadpendi, Idli, Dosa…etc. I would love to hear, in which way you make your breakfast interesting, do let me know if you have interesting recipes to share.
Summer invites more cucumbers into our diet as it’s a good hydrating agent and I do keep a good stock of them in my refrigerator all the times. Mostly I eat them raw with some salt, lime and red chilli powder on it, it’s simply superb. Because of the heat, I have lost the interest of indulging into elaborate cooking.
One of these days when I was trying to fix a decent breakfast and searching for ideas, I realized that I had not made Thalipeeth (pancakes) in a long time. The name thalipeeth made me go down the memory lane making me realize further, that I had never fed my family Cucumber Thalipeeth, which happened to be my ‘childhood favourite’. I was left shocked with the self realization and was pushed deep in thoughts. I was wondering, how could that be possible!!! How could I completely forget making such an amazing preparation for so long especially when they have been my personal favourites… . I gave a deep sigh and did not waste a single minute after that. I collected all the ingredients fast and geared up to make these extremely flavourful, spicy and savoury pancakes which are called Thalipeeth in Maharashtra.
