Sandwiches somehow lack the desi feel, whatever you put in between! change the menu to bread upma instead, and mom’s touch comes alive. With simple ingredients and a quick microwave procedure, this is a 100 per cent hassle-free snack. Don’t dip the bread for a long time, as it will lose its texture.
