Bachelors Recipes-Bachelors Cooking Indian

Eating good food is essential for good health. Bachelors who have no experience of cooking or basic kitchen knowledge find it very difficult having to cook for themselves when living alone. Eating out isn't good for the health and is also not affordable especially for students. Many recipes are in fact very simple and need only a minimum number of ingredients. A lot of the dishes share common ingredients, hence it is much cheaper and a healthier option to cook one's own food.
