A fancy breakfast, easy lunch and chocolatey dessert to finish the day are all you’ll need this Sunday, 8th of May.
Your mother deserves the best all year through, but you can make this Mother’s Day just a bit special by surprising her with these 3 easy recipes. So get into the kitchen and whip up these dishes to remind your mom that although you’ve grown up, you’re still a mama’s child!
1) Eggies in a Basket
Use a round cookie cutter or bottle cap to cut a hole in a slice of bread. Place the slice on a hot non-stick pan. Put in a blob of butter in the hole and gently crack an egg into it. Season the egg with salt and pepper. Cook the egg your mother likes, half-fried or fully fried. Serve with a cup of tea and bunch of flowers and you’ll have her smiling like never before
2) Roast Lunch
If she loves chicken, then take some medium sized chicken pieces from your local butcher. Cut the vegetables into medium sized pieces. Toss all of these in a mix of 2 teaspoons garam masala (or any other spice mix like dukkah or za’atar), 2 teaspoon chilli powder, 1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste and one salt. Place on top of a grill pan and cook till all of them are cooked through.
Serve these homemade tikkas with rumali roti or parathas. Your mom will love the fact that she didn’t have to worry about a weekend lunch.
3) Chocolate cupcakes
Take one cup wheat flour, three-fourth cup cocoa powder, four tablespoons brown sugar, two teaspoons baking powder and one teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. In another bowl, whisk together one cup buttermilk, one egg and one teaspoon vanilla essence. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones and mix together to form a smooth batter. Add a generous amount of chocolate chips and mix. Pour the batter in cupcake moulds and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes at 200 degrees
When baked and cooled, top the cupcakes with chocolate icing or molten chocolate. Even if you skip this step your mother will love the choco chips inside the cupcakes.
This will be the sweetest end to this Mother’s Day. With these 3 easy recipes, you’ll have your mother happy and smiling all day through. Isn’t that the whole point of Mother’s Day anyways?
