Samosa Chat – Make life easy

Too many things on your plate ??? And you are exhausted? Time to simplify things. Stop the obsession of …. fill in the gap for yourself . Few days back , a friend asked me on fb , when do you go to work and actually do the work? Ha .. Ha . Reason am always posting the fun things I do.

Well, I spend time doing things that’s fun for me. There are things we have to do but then there are things you can let go, hire ppl to do , spend little extra money. And most imp simplify things.

Samosa chat is simplified here. We all Indians know how chat needs so many things. Well, I had left over Chana masala. Went to Indian store in lunch time for grocery. So picked up freshly made samosas. They came with green and sweet chutney. You got the point , didn’t you?

Come home , assemble everything together . Put some yogurt, chopped onion, tomatoes , cilantro. And voila fun lunch for Friday ready in 5 mins.

That’s how you simplify life. Now I have time to go back to my work and even post this .
