The kababs can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge and can be shallow fried and served whenever you want. As for the soup, just strain and pour it in a soup bowl and serve hot.

My Home-Made Granola Bars

 

This has saved me and  my family so many times from hunger pangs and all of us carry a few in our hand bags. The one I make is moister than the store ones and normally I have a spare box in my fridge. I have added whatever I had in my fridge and felt was good for my family’s health. If you do not have all ingredients  you can still go ahead skipping a few, barring the basic ones like oats, chia seeds, honey and butter.
Makes 12 bars

A little here and there is okay. Continue reading “Jhaal Muri(Hot and Spicy Puffed Rice)”

Makes 4 roundels
