Who does not want to kickstart their day on a high with the most delicious breakfast waiting for them on the dining table? Do nothing and just grab your plate and chomp, chomp until you are done? Unfortunately, though, not all of us can afford that luxury. Some of us have to prepare our own breakfast from scratch, that too in such little time, that we keep swindling back to our regular (read: boring) ‘bread-jam fare’.

Now there’s a reason why breakfast is called the most important meal of the day. It is the first thing you eat in the day after a break of more than 8-10 hours. It kickstarts your metabolism, and provides your body the necessary fuel to go through the day. Making it nutritious and wholesome, is thus, a very important task, unless you want to see yourself nibbling on anything that comes your way, to keep yourself awake, adding to the unwanted calories.

Slurrp Community member and home-chef Alison, gave us an excellent recipe that is sure to make your mornings a little less mundane. In this recipe of spicy vegetable crepes, she combines maida, onion, tomato, carrots, bell peppers, chilli flakes eggs etc to make a thin and savoury crepe.  

Crepes are French in origin, and are usually sweet in taste. Dishes similar to crepes can be found across the world, our very own Dosa is a fine example, of how savoury crepes also work just as fine.

Unlike dosa, you do not need to have fermented batter for this recipe. It is instant, wholesome, and just perfect for your whole family. The melange of colours and crunch provided by yellow and green bell peppers, carrots and tomatoes will make it a hit among kids too.  

All you need to do is combine all ingredients together in a bowl and make a lump-free batter. Eggs help bind the batter together. Heat the pan with oil, pour a ladle full, let it spread and cook nicely.  

Once the crepes are golden brown, switch off the heat. Transfer the crepes onto a plate, and serve with sauce and chutney.
