1. Whole wheat buttermilk Pancakes 


  • 370 grams (1 ½ cup) milk.

  • 10 grams (2 teaspoons) white vinegar.

  • 15 grams (1 tablespoon) neutral-tasting oil.

  • 255 grams (2 cups) whole wheat flour.

  • 12 grams (2 tablespoons) caster sugar.

  • 6 grams (1 ½ teaspoons) baking powder.

  • 2 grams (½ teaspoon) baking soda.

  • 2 grams (½ teaspoon) salt.

  • 2 tablespoons butter or oil for cooking.


  • Combine the milk and vinegar and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until curdled.

  • Add the oil to it, and set it aside. 

  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 

  • Add the buttermilk to the dry ingredients, fold until you see no flour pockets.

  • Use a whisk to gently break up the lumps. 

  • Place a cast-iron skillet on medium heat. Add the butter or oil to it and let it get moderately hot. 

  • Use a ⅓ cup measure or an ice cream scoop and pour the pancake batter onto the hot skillet. 

  • In about 1-2 minutes you’ll see bubbles on top and light browning on the sides of the pancake, flip and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes. 

  • Insert a toothpick in the middle of the pancake and if it comes out clean, it’s cooked through. 

  • Serve the pancakes while still warm with some butter and maple syrup. 

2. Brioche French Toast


  • 1 large egg.

  • 120 grams (½ cup) milk.

  • 30 grams (2 ¼ tablespoons) brown sugar.

  • 3 grams (1 teaspoon) cinnamon powder.

  • 3 grams (¾ teaspoon) vanilla extract.

  • 4 brioche bread slices, cut into 1-inch thick slices. 


  • In a wide dish, crack an egg, add all of the ingredients except the brioche bread and whisk everything together.

  • Soak your bread slices in the egg mixture for at least a minute. 

  • Set up a frying pan and add 1 tablespoon of butter to it. Set the heat to medium-low. 

  • Increase the heat to medium, and place the soaked bread slices on the frying pan. Sprinkle the top of each bread slice with a pinch of brown sugar.

  • Cook each side for 2 minutes until golden brown.

  • Serve the French toast hot with whipped cream, maple syrup and blueberries.

 3. Green Bean Poriyal


  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

  • 2 teaspoons yellow split peas (channa dal or supermarket variety)

  • 1 tablespoon black mustard seeds

  • 1 teaspoon hulled black gram beans (urad dal)

  • 3 whole, dried red chillies

  • 8 fresh or 12 frozen curry leaves, torn into pieces

  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds

  • 1/8 teaspoon asafetida

  • ½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut

  • ¾ pound green beans, both ends trimmed, beans cut on an angle into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • ½ teaspoon sambhar or rasam powder

  • 1 cup water 


  • Combine the oil, yellow split peas, and mustard seeds, if using, in a large wok, kadai, or frying pan over medium-high heat.  Cover (the mustard seeds pop and splatter) and cook until you hear the mustard seeds crackle, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Add the urad dal, chilies, curry leaves, and cumin and cook uncovered, stirring, 1 more minute  (Stand back; the curry leaves spit when they hit the oil).

  • Add the asafetida and ¼ cup of the coconut and cook, stirring, 30 seconds.

  • Add the beans and the salt and cook, stirring, 5 minutes.

  • Add the remaining ¼ cup coconut, the sambhar or rasam powder, if using, and the water.  Bring to a simmer, cover and cook until the beans are tender, about 10 minutes.  Then uncover and cook, stirring often, until all of the water has evaporated, about 5 more minutes.  Taste for salt and serve hot.
