I t's time, once again, for an event announcement and this time it is Weekend Breakfast Blogging (WBB). WBB is an event started by Nandita of Saffron Trail and is now guest hosted every month with a breakfast related theme. I am honoured to host this month's edition and the theme this time is "Grains in my Breakfast".
Starting from the upper left corner, featured in this picture are broken wheat, amaranth flour, cornmeal, broken red rice, rolled oats and malted red millet.
As we know, breakfast is the meal which kick starts our body to face the day (till lunch, at least) after a long night's rest. The healthier and more complete our breakfast the better our bodies respond to the demands we make on them. Grains, in their natural unrefined form, play an important role in this and if we look into traditional breakfasts in various parts of the world, we will fing grains figuring in them one way or the other.
By grains, I'm referring to rice, wheat, corn, barley, oats, millet, quinoa, sorghum, amaranth, etc. You can find more information on grains here, here and here.
For this WBB, use grains (preferably as wholegrain and unrefined form) in any way you would like; whole, broken, as flour, or a variety of 2 or more grain forms cooked together. Some examples of foods are breads (flatbreads as well), pancakes, dosas, muffins.
A lot of Indian breakfast foods incorporate grains in some form. As long as the dish features grain as a main ingredient and is served up for breakfast, then it is WBB compliant this month.
So to be a part of WBB: Grains in my Breakfast, all you have to do is
1) Cook up a breakfast dish featuring grain (preferably wholegrain) as the main ingredient.
2) Blog about it anytime between today and the the 30th of September, 2008(midnight your time). Please link your post to this page and Nandita's WBB page. Please feel free to use the logo if you wish. A smaller version is on the sidebar of this blog.
