Mother's Day: 10 Smashing Brunch Recipes That'll Make Your Mom Happy
You've got two reasons to be happy today. For one, it's a gorgeous Sunday morning which gives you a license to endless laziness. But it's also Mother's Day which if planned right, can turn out to be a baller not just for your mum, but also for your entire family.

But before we get on with what's that something special you should do, check out today's sun kissed Google Doodle. It'll make you melt and go 'awww' in a jiffy. It doesn't just celebrate the unbreakable bond between mother and her child in humans, but also the one between animals. The animated 'O' in Google takes shape of a mommy and her little one hugging her, a duck and its ducklings, a rabbit and its baby rabbits.

It's only normal that you start this Mother's Day from the very same place that your mother spent most of her time. Her kitchen: Warm, cosy, compact but fully equipped kitchen that would linger with the smell of last night's tadka or this morning's masala omelet. Every time she walked in there you knew she'd come out with something good: something that would nurse you back to health, brighten up an extremely dull day, heal a bad mood or simply just taste damn good.

So if you can't wrap your head around which colour top or which new kitchen gadget to get her, then you've come to the right place. The one thing you know that not just your mother, but your entire family can enjoy on a hot but gorgeous Sunday is a big fat lazy brunch.

So while your mum works her way around the house spring cleaning, pull out an apron and march your way to the kitchen. We dug through our repertoire of recipes and found ten incredible recipes that will set the bar high and make your mother not just proud, but also vey very happy!
