Buddha Bowl

Buddha Bowl is a classic salad recipe and variations are immense depending on ones choice. I like to keep mine simple and today for breakfast I just did that. Earlier too when I prepared Buddha Bowl I did add some grains like quinoa and eggs but this time I skipped instead I added watermelons & mango both being in season and I love both so much. I also added Chana soaked overnight making it more nutritious.
