July 30, 2016 Motions and Emotions 14 Comments

Recently I re-connected with my college friends through Whats-app! Technology can really bring you closer. It's been almost 12 years we are chatting altogether. One of our friend took the initiative and recreated the circle once again. We realized that most of us are still crazy and can keep on talking about silly things!! Few of them already met in Kolkata but most of us are out of Kolkata so Whats-app is the only medium to continue our chat.

Whenever we think about get together, food is the center of attraction. I don't know when I can meet my old friends but imagine if I could meet them everyday over a cup of tea in the evening it would have been a great fun. Only a cup of tea is not enough so need something to munch and what about some healthy munching of Oats Chivda or Oats mixture. This Oats Chivda is very beneficial in post pregnancy weight loss too. You can prepare this Oats Chivda in your own kitchen. Here you find out the recipe how to prepare oats chivda.
