Oats is a nutritious and a healthy option if you are on diet or particular about eating healthy.Oats is preferably an option for breakfast but this recipe is good as a meal for luch or dinner.

Khichdi is an Indian dish made with rice and different dals (lentils) . It can be made in different styles suited as your taste. Instead of rice I opted for a healthy option an choose Oats . So for the recipe all the detail are given below.

5 reasons you shld visit The LiL Flea

Hi there!!!
Last weekend I had been to this amazing and the happiest flea market in Mumbai, The Lil Flea at Jio
garden Bandra Bkc. It was such a heartwarming experience and massive festival of shopping, food and
music. As it’s again on 8th and 9th of April 2017, I thought of visiting there again. That place gave me a
happy feeling and that made me share my thoughts here.

Well said enough let me share with you guys five reasons why you should definitely visit this place 

  • Amazing Ambiance: This Place is divinely beautiful. Everything about this place was so different.
    The moment you step in, you can see amazing décor. Every corner has been beautifully set up,
    the fairy lights, the delicate tents; the sayings on different corners will surely brighten up the
    mood. The entrance itself is very promising that there is more to welcome you inside. The place
    is filled with joy and being there will surely make you feel for a moment that you are not in
  •  Shopping: they have some 250 pop up shops from all over the country. From amazing dream
    catchers, to home décor, clothing, foot wear, and many more stuffs to shop. Some popup shops
    had quirky stuff that will surely make you a shopping spree. There is even a place for kids to
    play around so drop on your kids there while you go shopping spree. And even if not planning
    to buy, a window shopping will be a kind of therapy to the eyes… pretty stuffs do change
  •  Mouth drooling food: They have a separate food corner and that part you surely don’t want to
    miss when you go there. There are many options to choose from Indian to Italian to Mexican
    and the mouthwatering desert. As I was running short of time and I had these stuffed kulcha
    there I couldn’t try anything more but this time when I go there ,I will make sure I don’t miss
    out on anything.  
  •  Music: There is always a live band playing and such a pleasure to sit and relax. A perfect way to
    spend your weekend. There are 12 live bands going to perform this weekend. After a long week
    of work and stress this will surely unwind.
  • Capture a picture : Now this is something that depends on person to person but if you are a
    freak like me when it comes to clicking picture, you should definitely go there coz on every
    corner you will surely find something to click a picture with.  

So if u are in Mumbai don’t miss The Lil Flea which will surely make you feel happy and
joyful vibe. Be there on 8th and 9th of April. There is an entry fees of 250 rs person
