You may have heard plenty of people talk highly about our decadent gravies, our bold pickles and masalas. But seldom do we hear about our amazing flatbreads that surreptitiously go on to make our meal experience sumptuous and wholesome. Most of these breads make seasonal cameos on our plates; therefore, it is all the more necessary to make the most of them while we can, and give them all the love they deserve. As you revamp your diet in accordance with the season, make sure you use some of these seasonal ingredients in your flatbreads too.
