A good breakfast is the best way to begin a day that usually is filled with activities that range from making your meals to commuting to office and actually needing the energy to get all the work done in office. Research shows that anyone who has consumed a healthy and power packed breakfast will have a lot of energy throughout the day. So it is essential that we make sure that we get the right amount of energy from the right sources to have a successful start to a day.
So here we have a power packed breakfast of Gobi Paratha and Burani Raita which most Indians from the North consume on a daily basis. This paratha is quite filling and the energy that you will get from the ghee used while cooking the paratha will keep you going through the day. Along with the paratha is a raita prepared with minced garlic, cumin powder and black salt which helps balance the taste when eaten along with the gobi paratha.
Did you know: Cauliflower or Gobi has a high content of Vitamin C along with Vitamin K which is responsible for coagulation of blood and absorption of calcium in the body. It is also high in dietary fibre which aids in maintaining a healthy digestive system.
