You know what’s better than having breakfast at dinner? A brunch! I mean, why else would you wake up early on a Sunday morning? But do you know what’s even better than a usual brunch? 

A desi brunch! 

You get to munch on all your fave delicacies in brunch style! From paratha to halwa puri, you literally have so many options to choose from! And, in case if you’re out with your parents, wouldn’t you find it easier to explain what a masala egg muffin is rather than eggs bourguignon?

So, get your menus out because these desi alternatives to your angrezi brunches are here to steal the show.
