Savoury Egg & Chia Seed Pudding / GoIndiaOrganic Food Product Review


Healthy meal using a healthy ingredients gives a sheer happiness and satisfaction of serving a nutritious meal to our family members. My today's post also a healthy and nutritious breakfast which contains an excellent superfood "Chia seeds".  Thanks to Goindiaorganic and Plattershare team for sending Chia seeds and Maple syrup for product review. This post goes to Belly Nirvana, an associate program by Plattershare group. This group is an excellent platform for bloggers as well as for home chefs.

Chia seeds are a tiny black seeds with a mild nutty flavour. During google search, found an amazing fact that chia means strength in Mayan language and also known as Runners Food. Runners and Warriors use this superfood as a fuel while running for long distance or while going for a battle.  Chia seeds is easily digestible and a versatile ingredient. This seed can be used as raw, soaked or powder form in any dishes like salad, stir fry, soup, juices etc. This can also be added for giving crunchiness to the dish. As this ingredient contains omega3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fibre and calcium, this helps in treating diabetics, skin and aging related problems, heart related problems, weight loss, build muscle and for stronger bones. As it is high in fiber, this helps in losing weight and useful in digestive health.

The chia seeds which I had received from GoIndiaOrganic is a natural gluten free Raw Chia. The quality of the product is too good and  contains only 100 % chia. This is also certified by Organic farm and a nature's complete food. Highly recommended to buy this product to lead a healthy lifestyle.


Savoury Egg & Chia Seed Pudding is a tasty and healthy meal to serve as a breakfast along with a fresh juice or vegetable juice. Instead of using chia seeds only in smoothies and yogurt, try this interesting one bowl breakfast which can be prepared in couple of minutes. To make this meal more nutritious, include more veggies like mushroom, bell peppers, olives etc. According to my recipe measurement, two medium oval shaped ( as given in the picture ) meal can be prepared. The cooking time for one bowl took 2 minutes for me and it may vary according to the quantity and size of the bowl.

Ingredients :

2 Tsp Butter ( I have used flavoured butter )
4 Eggs
2 Tbsp Milk
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Big Onion, Finely chopped
1 Big Tomato, Finely chopped
Salt to taste
1 Tbsp Freshly ground pepper
5 - 6 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
6 Bread Slices

Method :

Break eggs and transfer it to a bowl along with 2 tbsp of milk and chia seeds.

Beat well using fork and keep aside for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut the edges of the breads and chop into pieces. Keep aside.

Add finely chopped onions followed by tomato and salt to the chia seeds soaked beaten eggs.

Grease the ceramic or glass pan with the flavoured butter and arrange the chopped bread pieces.

Now pour the egg mixture on top of the arranged bread pieces.

Sprinkle the grated parmesan cheese on top of it.

Microwave it for 2 mins or till the eggs get cooked.

Once done, remove from the microwave and serve hot.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
