Sooji Halwa Breakfast Bowl

Yet another breakfast bowl @ Foopla. I will not call it a Buddha Bowl or a Krishna Bowl. I will simply call it a “Have more breakfast bowl” which gives you more nutrition than what we usually have as part of our breakfast.

Our breakfast is usually hurried or sometimes skipped too! But the whole idea is to have nutritionally pepped up breakfast to kick start a good metabolism which not only keeps you full for a longer time but also keeps you more active. I am all for breakfast bowls these days! You can check out my first breakfast bowl which is a Poha Breakfast Bowl.

Making poha or upma or one of the infamous Indian breakfasts we usually end up making for the paucity of time or inclination? Include some raw vegetables, fruits or a bowl of curd with it. Add some protein in the form of sprouts, lentils or lean cheeses.

Coming back to my new breakfast bowl. This is a very light sooji halwa made with cane sugar and served with more fruits than the halwa. My daughter prefers a sooji halwa than upma so I make this often for her.
