Have you had hunger pangs at say about 4.30 - 5 pm? I believe I'm hungriest at that time in the evening. And the worst part is, I'm sitting in a bus on my way back from office at that time. All I can think about is food and I cannot reach out to any food. I tell you that is the WORST situation to be in. 

Then what do I do? I obsess about food. I start browsing Pinterest. Isn't it like the most AWESOME app for all us food lovers? So much beautiful food out there. Click here to follow me on Pinterest. Then I realise I'm getting hungrier, and I really really cannot sleep when I am hungry, so on days I have a good book with me, I read, or on other days I look out those large bus windows and keep spotting street food vendor..

And as soon as I get down from the bus, I run to the nearest bakery or street stall for may some crisp Puff or the spicy Samosa. Later on at night, I obsess about having eaten all that fried food or fatty food. Guilt definitely weighs heavy on my heart and my tummy. 

To avoid all that I wrote about, I keep a few quick to make yet absolutely HEALTHY recipes up my sleeve. And this Wheat Dosa fits it to a T. Everyone I know knows that Whole wheat is healthy. Protein, good Carbs, Filling, need I go on? No sugar, no frying, no butter - This is perfect for evenings as much as for mornings. Effort required - chop tomatoes, onions (and these are optional) and add to some whole wheat flour. Add water, salt and spices if you love them as much as me. And then just spread on a pan and cook with barely 1 tsp of oil. That's IT!!!
