Week :2, Day : 1

Theme: Brunch ideas for Kids
We are in the second week of this marathon and for this week I have chosen to cook Brunch Ideas for Kids. For the very first day I have a Burmese dish. This is a complete meal, very healthy and equally delicious. This is one meal which is made quite often in our house. Don’t get put off by the long ingredient list, it’s not that tedious. Well though it is a little time consuming, but totally worth it.
