Granola fall-style

The weather is finally changing, nights are getting windy and cold and streets have foliage of fallen leaves 🍁❤️ On these cold grey days, I prefer warm breakfast with oatmeal or yogurt and granola also poha/upma/dosa/idli 🙂 But mornings are so hectic that it's not possible to whip up an elaborate breakfast. So, to make things... Continue Reading →
