Everyone is aware of the fact that one should not skip breakfast. I will share with you an easy recipe that can be whipped up in less than 5 Mins provided you have Idli / Dosa batter in stock. You can add vegetables of your choice. This is one way to ensure that we eat the veggies and breakfast too.

Our theme for 30th #Foodiemonday #bloghop  is #Microwavecooking. Microwave—A humble appliance that is commonly found in every household. But beyond melting, defrosting and general time-saving, the resourceful microwave can be used to cook whole meals and bake too.
