My Favorite Winter Breakfast

My Favorite Winter Breakfast

It’s not THAT cold here in Southern California, but if you’re like me, you like a hot breakfast as soon as it gets below 60.

This dish has great warming properties from the array of spices, and is easy to prepare. An Indian grocery will have all the spices, and if you can’t find the more exotic ones in your local grocery, don’t fret – it will still be good. Powders can also be substituted for whole seeds, if necessary.

You’ll find this so easy and flavorful that you’ll make it again and again.

ENJOY!
