Nehal has recovered from a severe bout of flu and is doing good. Am I glad! Well, I am yet to recover from a severe throat infection. I have never been so sick in a long long time. With absolutely no appetite, I have been living off soups and rasam these past few days. I feel much better since the weekend. Hopefully should be back to my normal routine this week.
A quick breakfast/evening tiffin prepared with left over idlis for one of those not-feeling-good days. Similar to Idli Upma with a slight variation.
