Calling all sleepyheads! Here are 10 breakfast recipes that can be made in 30-minutes or less

If you are strapped for time every morning and are running out the door with a half-burned toast in your hand, this is your sign to stop. We are here to show you that there are so many breakfast options you can choose from. Indian breakfasts like upma and poha come together pretty quickly but if you're not in the mood for that perhaps a fluffy egg omelette or French toast will do?

We've curated a list of 10 breakfast recipes that take less than 30 minutes so that you can get your beauty sleep, but also the right nutrition to start your power-packed day. We've tried to keep the ingredient list minimal so that you can work your way around the kitchen with eyes half-open. Just please be alert when the cooking starts.

Poached eggs

Some mornings just feel fancier than other ones and if you're in the mood for something elaborate but quick, check out this video tutorial on how to ace a poached egg. Free of oil and with an ooey-gooey center, prop it on toast and enjoy with a beverage of your choice.


Few things are better than a steaming plate of kanda poha with chai in the morning. Soak your poha for 10-15 minutes while you prep the ingredients and cook the onion-potato mixture. After that, this classic comes together pretty quickly.

French toast

This is one of those dishes that takes only five minutes but looks like it took a lot of time and effort. With the addition of floral honey and warm cinnamon, our French toast has the ability to brighten up your day.

Rava upma

A South-Indian breakfast recipe should be a staple on your weekly menu! With nuttiness from the roasted rava, chana and urad dal, spiciness from the green chillies and flavour from the curry leaves, it will make for one satisfying and nutritious breakfast.

Whole wheat banana chocolate chip pancakes

If you want to start your day on a sweet note, opt for a delicious stack of pancakes that is also healthy. Not only will the kids in your family enjoy it, but it will also feel like indulging in chocolate chip banana bread first thing in the morning. What's not to like?

Egg nest

When you have friends coming home for breakfast at the last minute or if you want to feast on something different but don't want to spend over half an hour in the kitchen, try out our egg nest that holds sunny-side up eggs and a delicious vegetable salsa on a hash-brown base. The best part is that it's a one-pot meal that can go from stove to table.

Aloo paratha

A recipe that's quick to make but comes together even faster if you have leftover chapati dough. Stuffed with potatoes, onions and spices and cooked in some desi ghee, these indulgent parathas are sure to keep you full till lunch.

Chocolate banana smoothie

Ever just want to start the day with chocolate? Well, here's a healthy way to do that. Our smoothie includes two fruits and two types of chocolate, something that we consider to be balance. Watch the whole video for more.

Sabudana khichdi

Now remember to soak the sabudana overnight but once that is done, this recipe is quick and perfect for a long day ahead. The addition of potatoes makes it a lip-smacking and energy-packed breakfast that can also be eaten on days that you are fasting.

Instant oats idli

Making idlis without fermenting the batter over a period of time is possible with these instant oat idlis. They are fluffy, delicious and you get the goodness of oats, making it an ideal breakfast choice.

Do they all sound so good you're thinking an all-day breakfast menu at home? We get it.
