Sabzi (cooked vegetables), parantha (fried flat bread) and a glass of chai, my childhood is filled with vibrant memories of different kind of sabzis my mum would make with crispy parantha on a Sunday morning.

'Taazi' sabzi (freshly cooked vegetables) beats butter chicken for me any day. All credit goes to my mum. She would make these simple fresh food and simple rotis or paranthas, that filled my heart with joy.
