The clock almost has struck 8:00 am. Mom’s here she is not going to spare me for waking up this late !! I had already committed her for cooking the morning breakfast. Can’t keep nagging any more. I could almost hear the ticking and tons of the alarms and few missed calls of mom to wake me up !! Technology has revolutionized our lives no more she knocks or yells. A call on the cell is a formal gesture of waking up.

All these tensions lead me to jump out of the bed and brush my teeth with the fastest speed I could and till then I was thinking of some Easy Peasy Recipe, so that I can meet all the needs of the family. Easy Peasy !! Easy Peasy!! My mind could get the dish. A perfect blend of nutrition and taste and treat in the cool morning. I was going to make Mutter Paratha.

Paratha’s are super warm to gobble down and is a perfect idea for brunches. You munch two whole paratha and sleep the entire day without the worry of hunger. So it’s on my menu on few weekends when I want to relax and enjoy my weekends with other hobbies of mine.
