BLACK CURRANT GRANOLA

We all have corn flakes, oats or wheat flakes with milk and fruits for breakfast. Granola or Museli are tasty versions of breakfast cereal.

VEG MASALA SEVAI

Sometime back I had a chance to try Savorit brand’s Gopuram sevai or idiyappam recipes. They turned out super hit at home and I have made this several times but hadn’t had the chance to post here.

But this instant version was equally good, cutting down the process of hard labour but not compromising on the taste.  I have added many vegetables here, so you can pack this for lunch as well.
