Breakfast Lentil

Healthy indeed!

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and my favorite one as well. I like it make it healthier and delicious, i usually prepare for it good to bring lots of flavors and nutrition at the same time. As we know, lentils are a brilliant source of protein and minerals and among them the white lentil is much fulfilling, so i prefer making it for my breakfast. Here is a simple and sure short delicious recipe for your breakfast!


-White lentil 1/2 kg

-Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp

-Onion 1 small sliced

-Whole red pepper 2-3

-Green chilies 2

-Ginger Julian cut 1 1/2 tbsp

-Fresh coriander 2-3 tbsp chopped

-Black pepper crushed 1 tbsp

-Salt to taste

-Oil 1/4 cup


Boil the lentil with ginger garlic paste and green chili until well cooked. Mix in black pepper and salt.

Heat oil in a fry pan and add onions and red pepper, fry till onion turns golden brown. Pour on cooked lentil. Garnish with ginger and fresh coriander and serve.

Kitchen Tip:

Don’t buy regular big onions, use shallots or leeks. For most everyday cooking, milder onions will enhance your dish and give it more nuance. Big, strong onions certainly have their place in cooking (soups, roasts, etc.), but most kitchen experiments will be improved by more subtle onion flavor.
