Let us all agree, Monday blues are for real, especially after a super exciting weekend and late night party. Waking up early the next day can be a pain and on top of that, planning meals seem like a torture. What do you do then? Order food from outside? That doesn’t look like a feasible plan. Guess what we do! We play smart and revamp the leftover food from the weekend. Today, we have a bowl of chicken curry from last night’s dinner party that we will be serving to the family in various ways throughout the day. You can do it with mutton curry as well.
