I love road trips.. but I’m really a poor planner when it comes to food. I simply assume that I will of course find something to eat along the way. After all – living in America, this isn’t a far-fetched assumption. Well – when you’re driving through farmland, it’s a little harder to find a restaurant.

Now, I know you’re reading this, looking at the picture above and saying – “Um.. Raj.. Are you writing about a different recipe post.. cuz that does’t look like brunch at all.” LOL. I know, I know, it’s not the typical brunch around the world. But in India – having Misal with yogurt for brunch is not only typical but also evokes the same joy and happiness a stack of pancakes does for most Americans.
So what is “Misal”? Misal literally means “mixture”. It’s a really popular dish in the state of Maharashtra, India. Generally it’s eaten in the morning or Read More
