Followed by heavy lunch and a long afternoon nap(quiet an irony though ,long and nap) And eventually when its time for dinner and you aleady begin getting Monday blues , you really dont have any appetite remaining!
This Idli Chaat , is just the quick grab dish for one such sunday evenings. And what more , you can be satisfied for putting those leftover morning idli's to correct use!
