There are these frequent days in our fast lives, when we want to eat some thing yummy and delicious putting bare minimum efforts.
This happens too often with me when I don’t want to order from outside yet want delicious dishes on my plate with optimum resources in very short time. As either I have a meeting to attend in another 30 minutes or some unfinished task that demands immediate attention.
