All u need to do is marinate the baby potatoes and then the rest of the procedure can be done quickly. Baby potatoes are always a favourite and will be in my shopping list!

I love pickles!! Its a divine combo with curd rice. I am more than happy to have curd rice and pickle rather than an elaborate meal! This Garlic Pickle is an easy and lip-smacking pickle variety.

Bread Besan Toast is an easy and yummy breakfast/snack that can be made in a jiffy. Unlike the Bread Bajji which is deep fried, this Bread Besan Toast is a low fat guilt free version. U just need to whisk a few ingredients, dip and coat the bread in it and toast it. How easy is that?!? If u do not eat eggs, this is the best alternative to a french toast.
