This announcement is for October 2015. We will be shortly starting our Mega Marathon from Sep 2015, where we will have a Buffet On Table for you guys. Do come and join us.

Meanwhile everybody can prepare for Oct as well. Also to make it easy for all of us, I have included themes that will overlap with the Sep theme. After the heavy September working, I guess we should have some easy time with Oct themes!

Before going into the new themes, here are the links to some of the BM related pages.

The current 2015 BM details can be found in the Blogging Marathon Page.
If you want to check out older BM details, check the BM Archives
If you are new and want to join us, check out the BM Guidelines and Rules

Now lets move on to the October month themes.

Since we have a month to prepare, please avoid doing last minute posting, prepare ahead and schedule, which should give you enough time to read the fellow participating blogger's post in leisure.

I also decided I will be little more strict in handling late posts. I know real life sometimes becomes very tough to manage. However if you know it is going to be so, please do not sign up. I will understand. But if you are signing up, then I expect you to be prompt in posting and reading fellow BM blogs.

For details on BM held every month, check out the Blogging Marathon page. Once I get all details I will be updating this page. Bloggers taking part in this marathon need to just link back to the BM page.

The entry is again by Sign ups and each theme will again have only 4 bloggers on first come first basis. 

And because of the new rules I will not be able to accept late sign ups as it will become extremely hard for me to manage otherwise. If you feel you want to do it, please decide ahead, else you can join later.

Commenting on the participating bloggers post is mandatory.

And subscription to the group will be monthly basis.

Capsicum Paneer Sandwich ~ Easy Breakfast for Kids

>>  Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Pin It

For the final day of Healthy Breakfast for Kids, I have a simple Capsicum Paneer Sandwich served for breakfast. I was making this for Hubby dear and in the process Konda also had for her breakfast. It ended up being so delicious that I used the mix for my paratha as well. Boy was the stuffed paratha delicious or what! I was wondering how come I had missed out a simple yet delicious combination of vegetables till date. Just to ensure I hadn't shared it already, I checked both my blogs and couldn't find it. Imagine my shock. Or if you happen to find this already on my blogs, please let me know. I have given up on tracking if I had posted something already or not.

Of course when it comes to some traditional or famous recipes, I do remember. However these sort of fusion and developed out of need hardly ever resisters for long.

We recently had a challenge posed on us, meaning Amma and myself. We have to come up with dishes without using Tomato. Not just plan for dinner, but all three meals in a day. We have been going bonkers. We got saved for a breakfast with this dish. 

I am now tracking all No Tomato Recipes in both the blogs. Imagine my plight! Anyway this went on to show that if one plans, we can avoid certain essential ingredients as well.

Infact I won't mind more ideas for all the meals without using Tomatoes.

This sandwich is quite healthy as I used few drops of oil and ghee to saute the vegetables and grill the bread. I was planning to make it in the Sandwitch maker, but ditched it as taking out the gadget was in itself a task!

Make this and enjoy for a meal anytime of the day!

Capsicum Paneer Sandwich

Ingredients Needed:

Sandwich Bread Slices - 4
Onions - 1 medium
Paneer, grated - 1/2 cup
Capsicum, finely chopped - 1/2 cup
Italian Seasoning or Indian regular spice powders as per taste
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnish.

I used a tsp of Red chili powder, coriander powder, 1/2 tsp of roasted cumin powder, a pinch of garam masala.

How to make the Sandwich:

For the filling

Heat a pan with oil, saute onions, then add finely diced capsicum. Cover with lid and let it get soft. Then add all the spice powders. Mix well and cook for 2 mins.

Then add grated paneer and combine everything well. Simmer for 2 mins, then garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

To make the sandwich

Toast the bread on hot tawa till it turns crisp. Top two slices with enough filling and press the other bread over this and press firmly to make it hold the stuffing.

Serve hot with ketchup!

Sending this to Lavina, who is hosting my Kid's Delight Event, themed on Healthy Breakfast for Kids.

Come, join us for Breakfast with this delicious Sandwich!
