CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE AND ROASTED POTATOES

BEST BREAKFAST IN GURUGRAM
Chocolate milkshake and rosted potatoes

These days, I like to start my morning meal with a glass of milk. As my eyes stumbled upon the jar of chocolate milk, I could not resist to get a glass of it for myself and that is when I decided to ditch the regular milk and indulged in this chocolicious affair. On the side, I have roasted potatoes and some olive-lettuce salad. Potato chunks were pan-seared and seasoned with rosemary and oregano. Olive-lettuce salad is my own creation. Speciality of the buffet breakfast is that you can customise things according to yourself and salad is one of them. I paired the kalamata olives and fresh lettuce leaves. For the dressing I opted for balsamic vinegar and extra-virgin olive oil.

Idli chutney and Vermicelli upma

IDLI CHUTNEY

South indian food lovers will not be disappointed as this place serves the best southern style dishes. Any breakfast is incomplete without the south indian delicacies so I had to get a portion of it. They had a lot of options such as dosa, mysore bonda and many more things but I decided to get the Idlis and vermicelli upma first. Sambar and coconut chutney was also available to complement the idlis but I chose the tomato garlic chutney. Idli was super soft, infact it even broke into half while serving, as you can see in the picture above. Spongy and airy idli served here soaks up the flavours of chutney and melts right away in your mouth. Texture is grainy, probably it is made using the rice rava.

VERMICELLI UPMA

Vermicelli upma was equally good, each and every strand of vermicelli noodles were separate and it was not at all mushy. Perfect amount of spices and tempering of curry leaves gives it the balanced flavours which leaves a mesmerizing after-taste on your tongue.

MEDU VADA RECIPE | QUICK RECIPES

Medu Vada recipe is one of the most sought after thing as it is a South Indian recipe which has gained popularity all over the world. These are made using the urad dal which is ground to a very fine paste and whisked until creamy. Texture is the most important part of this delicacy as it is what makes or breaks the final outcome. Desired texture of a medu vada is super crisp from outside but airy, spongy and fluffy from inside. If made properly, interior of Vada turns out as soft as a cotton ball. A good vada melts in your mouth as soon as you bite into it. It is conventionally serve with ‘sambar’, hot lentil and vegetable stew and ‘coconut chutney’, a dip made up of crushed coconut and chana dal, tempered with curry leaves and mustard seeds.

Notes

  • Always whisk the lentil paste in one direction, so that air remains entrained.
  • Do not add too much vadas in the oil at the same time as the temperature of the oil might drop which will make vadas turn out oily.

Recipe

  • Season with oregano, chilli flakes and salt. Oregano can be replaced with rosemary and chives as well but I like mine with oregano.
 Vegetables with herbs
Oregano can be replaced with other herbs
  • Drizzle extra virgin olive oil over vegetables. Here, I am using Olitalia Extra Virgin Olive Oil which you can get from Amazon. Check-out the link to buy it in the beginning of blog post.

  • Place the lettuce leaves on a steamer plate/basket as placing lettuce underneath the vegetables not only prevents them from sticking but also adds flavour and texture to the recipe. Alternatively, cabbage leaves can be used in the place of iceberg lettuce, just in case they are not available. Although, lettuce is available at majority of supermarkets but finding them at local vegetable store is quite difficult sometimes.
  • Fill the vegetable mix in the lettuce leaves but keep in mind that you don’t over fill the cups otherwise they might not be able to hold the vegetables in place.
 Vegetables cups
These look delicious already
  • Cover and steam for 3-5 minutes. Serve Immediately after it is ready because this recipe tastes when hot.
Steamed Vegetables
Do not steam for more than 5 minutes
