Making a quick breakfast is always challenging. I prefer not to spend too much time on a weekday for making breakfast. I hate the extra effort to wake up earlier than usual just to make something elaborate for breakfast. On the other hand since i am at home and have a lot of time on my hands, i don’t like to eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast everyday. In times like these, that shavige comes to the rescue.
I prefer the ragi shavige as it more nutritious. You can make a lot of variations with this.
Ingredients (serves 3-4)
1 packet shavige of your choice
3-4 green chillies
1 cup frozen/fresh peas
2 tablespoons grated coconut (optional)
handful of fresh coriander/cilantro
Juice from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon each of urad dal and chana dal
salt to taste
Prepare the shavige as per instructions on the packet.
Heat the oil in pan. Once the oil starts smoking add the mustard seeds, reduce heat and then add both the dals. Fry till golden brown.
Next add the green chillies and onion and fry till the onion turns translucent. Add the peas and saute until they are soft.
Add the shavige, coconut, salt, cilantro, lemon juice and mix well.
You can skip the mustard-dal seasoning, saute onions and add some pulao masala powder.
To make sweet ragi shavige, toast some white sesame seeds till golden brown. Add coconut, jaggery or sugar and the sesame seeds to the ragi shavige and mix well.
