Simple is Humble !
Simple things in life are truly so humble that they never really gain that much of attention. We tend to take them for granted and forget their importance but they always remain close to our heart.
I am hereby starting a new series of ultra simple recipes which have been made over and over in my kitchen and which are a part of our everyday simple meals. It was a thought that came to me after realizing that all my recent recipes have been on my fetish-Baking. Simple everyday food is something that I have ignored on my blog since the beginning. Therefore, this is just an attempt to share everyday super simple silly food.
This recipe is for that super perfect lazy day where you do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen. It is also ridiculously simple with no garlic, onions or tomatoes and yet is so yummy. We pair it with Atte ki Puri and a khatti meethi chutney. It can also be devoured with plain boiled rice.
