Its been a while that I login to post some new recipe and not able to post anything with a diversion of mind to fellow bloggers posts, or looking at online shoping portals and unable to concntrate. Well finally I am here posting something new here :)

Today's post is a simple under 15 minutes recipe with no cooking needed. Sounds lilttle weird right, but trust me once you see the recipe it will give you a justification. This is very traditional "Havyaka" recipe. This recipe calls for simple ingredients.
