MASALA OATS

img_1444Hello There. Its a new week and new beginnings. I have seen a huge difference in the way people perceive food these days. People are becoming more health conscious. The original recipes are getting a healthy twist. Deep frying is replaced with air frying. White sugar is replaced with brown sugar.
