more days for Summer Vacation. Today is Half day for Kids . So they will eat Lunch at Home. My daughter asked me to surprise her with a new recipe for Lunch. So Instant means Dosa or Poha or Upma. I have Split Green Moong Dal which doesn’t need overnight soaking. Just an hour is sufficient. Sometimes I just eat Moong Dal Uttapam adding little grains. Today I skipped Grains but topped it with Potato slices. This is a Surprise Lunch for my Kids. When I served , they asked did I topped the Pancake with Boiled egg . I asked them to taste . They took a small bite  and said Yum with their eyes wide Open . Because it is their favorite Vegetable.
