breakfast-poha-trifle-recipe‘All Happiness Depend on A Leisurely Breakfast’! So have you had your breakfast today? For me, breakfast is THE most important meal of the day and no matter how hectic my schedule is, I always sneak in some time to have a hearty breakfast. Although I must confess that till date, weekday breakfast was simply either or few of these : smoothie/cereal/toast/avocado and the traditional Indian breakfasts (poha/upma/parathas/etc) were kept for the weekends. Until I found these delicious MTR Breakfast Mixes and one of them happened to be ‘MTR Khatta Meetha Poha’ which (hold your Breath) just needs a cup of hot water and you have a ready to eat poha in 3 minutes!! OMG, can you believe that ?….. I had to literally read the instructions 4-5 times, as I kept thinking I’m missing something. You can see the result’s here (I’m just adding a cup of hot water):poha-processNobody at home believed me till I made another packet in front of them and voila, the poha came out perfect, fluffy and tasted absolutely delicious….just like the one you make from scratch. After noshing on it for a couple of days, I decided to make individual ‘Healthy Quick Savory Breakfast Poha Trifle‘ cups by layering sauteed peas, shredded carrots, some nuts, and few other ingredients. The result was this absolutely gorgeous and mouth watering delight that was gone even before we were half way through the breakfast…no-one touched the smoothie/fruits or anything else.quick-poha-recipe-veganIf you are wondering why the ‘individual cups’? Well, first it looks so pretty, second, the layers stay intact and you can eat the way you want (layer by layer or mixing everything together) and third which was most important for me, you can carry it anywhere in the house or outside on the go. Especially, if you carry breakfast to work, these are a perfect fit – they don’t spill (cover the cups with cling wrap) and you can make them overnight as they remain intact (just store in fridge). I’d also suggest making them in microwavable bowls for reheating + your colleagues are definitely gonna ogle at this gorgeous stuff while you nosh on it 🙂 (just kidding, you can take some extra to share).easy-breakfast-poha-recipe

These breakfast delights are definitely on a repeat at our home and I hope you get to try this soon. Just look for ‘MTR Khatta Meetha Poha’ in your local Indian grocery store or you can order them through amazon too. Also, they are perfect for my Vegan and Glutenfree Friends.
