Yogurt and Cereal Breakfast



Few days back Chaitra navaratri started in northern part of India which will end on Ram Nabami, I know most of you celebrated Ugadi and Godi padva recently with all gusto.We Bengali’s celebrate Basanti Puja during these days with all enthusiasm. After this it's official summer time in northern part of India.Ashok Shashti is a fasting ritual most of the married Bengali ladies observe on sixth day of navaratri/basanti puja.Mainly vegetarian food is eaten,however this recipe I am not sure completely follow the norms/ritual as it has cereal in it,but if you leave out cereal ,yogurt and fruits can be eaten on that day.If you know other things related to Ashok Shashti or any other stories ,do drop few lines here.I do think these are some tradition we must conserve and pass it on to next generation.

Now to the simple recipe for yogurt cereal breakfast
Yogurt cereal Breakfast
Serves 2-3
2 cups of yogurt
1 cup of chopped strawberry or any fruits
½ cup of cereal (I use Kellogg’s clusters)
Method
Well there is no special method.
Just layer yogurt,then strawberry then cereal till glasses are filled.
Serve chilled or eat while you finished preparing it.
One more close look

And this video which I think is soul stiring.Banshi tui bajish Na rey! By Paban Das Baul.I keep playing it for several times continuously. This reminds me of Purno Das Baul and his baul giti which all of us listened to while growing up.

  20. Hi Subhra,

    Yes sure why not..sugar/honey goes well with it..and muesli can be used in place of kellog's cluster..even sometimes I do add oats granola or coco puffs for various version..you can even change fruits like raspberry or cherry if you are in abroad..in India mango is in season now ..can add those or even papaya pieces..or chickoo/safeda ..Just go along the way you want to make it and the possibilty is endless..thanks for coming by..
