While the whole country is under lock and key, most of us are cleaning, cooking and especially working at home. So we have neither the time nor the energy to invest in the preparation of decent food. The ability to order food decreases every day and the person feels almost helpless while cooking. Even for those who love and know how to cook, we are now in a situation where it is necessary to remember our stock resources and not have fun with beautiful dishes based on 50 ingredients.
When preparing most of the main ingredients you also have to make sure that we prepare something healthy so that you don’t end up in an unhealthy snack routine.
To solve all your gastronomic dilemmas, chefs have developed healthy, simple and quick recipes that require a minimum of ingredients yet are delicious. Choose between the universal Rava Uttapam and the decadent fish market.
