“A unique, indian-style breakfast. From my dad. ADD YOUR OWN TWIST this recipe morphs well. You can vary the amount of spicyness to your taste by adjusting the chili. The turmeric helps prevent alzheimers and adds color and flavor. It is not spicy. this is a both healthy and flavorful to boot. The onions make this phenomenal but they are not necessary. You can use spinach or sliced mushrooms instead of the onion”
