Breakfast is that time when of the day when you’ve just woken up and still have a little lethargy left in you. While your bed is drawing you towards it, you know you have to head to work or in our case, work from home. Either ways, when you have to start your day early and plan out the to-do lists, who has time for a lavish breakfast right? Those chole bhatures and aloo ke parathe are reserved for lazy Sundays.
