The year 2020 has made us realize that a healthy lifestyle is a real treasure one should put all his/her efforts to work on in the best way without a single day of ignorance. I am a big aloo chat lover, but Potato hardly comes to my home as it places at the lowest in terms of liking to my family members’ favorite food item list.
So when I crave it, We go to the restaurants or in some potluck I make sure to have some Chat items —Pandemic blocked these options. Honestly, I also wanted to avoid Potatoes, Yes! You got the gist! My weighing scale scared of me.
