Sunday mornings have been very special for me.
A  drive to THE MARINA BEACH early in the morning to see the sun rise is a treat to the eyes. Taking long walks along the beach road feels really good with the sea breeze brushing against your face. 
The beach is buzzing with activities even early in the morning. We can see people coming for walks, people laughing in the laughter club, children playing cricket, people practicing yoga, the police patrolling on horses, hawkers selling "health juices".... and many more interesting things.

On our way back we always went to the Woodlands Drive-In restaurant to have hot idli vada and coffee. The place was full of greenery and the atmosphere there was really refreshing.
Unfortunately the place has closed down.

                                                                                                                          We still go out on some Sunday mornings to have our breakfast and coffee. We have now chosen the Triplicane Ratna Cafe on Velachery By-pass road. The food is very tasty and they serve sambhar (in a vessel) and chutney unstintingly!!! 

 We love to go to the restaurants early in the morning for the reason that it's deserted. We don't have to wait for a table!!
There are only few people who are back from their morning walks or elderly people with news paper in hand enjoying their morning sip of coffee.                                             The smell of agarbathis(incense sticks) wafts in the air. The waiters are all fresh and energetic .    
You can have a peaceful and enjoyable breakfast.

Try going to a restaurant when they are just opening and enjoy. I am sure you will love it.

About Me

I began this blog to compile my recipes in one place. I started writing this keeping in mind beginners and busy people and hence have tried to keep the steps and procedure as simple as possible. The recipes that you find here are vegetarian, which I cook on a day to day basis and are quite simple. I dedicate this space to all the people whom I came across,who inspired me to cook, who shared their recipes and tips and helped me improve my culinary skills.
