The Sunshine your way
I am bringing you all the sunshine today with this Spring inspired Indian Style Black Chickpeas (Kala Chana) Sprouts Chaat.
Nature frolicked this week:
Nature is playing phenomenal games in this part of the world where I live. In a single day, we are witnessing 3-4 snowfalls, 4-5 rains, really cold and dark scenes, and lots of bright sunshine in between. And the sequence of all these events is pretty random. For the past couple of days, in the morning the day starts with the snowfall and later around at 9:00 am, the sun finally decides to show up and brings the bright sunshine. And then after some time, again it starts to rain and once more some dazzling sun blesses us, and then the next time, an amazingly thick-flaked snowfall. Sounds so magical. Looks so too 🙂
