Cook your mum an unforgettable meal

Cook your mum an unforgettable meal

There may not be a heart as pure and loving as our mom's. Our mum is our 'Superhero'; she is a great multi-tasker, and runs around all day and works tirelessly, taking care of all our needs single handedly. Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to show how much we love, care, and appreciate her. You can express our gratitude by taking over the daily chores at home and grant her the much-needed rest from the everyday routine.

Also, given the lockdown, we sure can bring the celebration home. Make her some delicious and nutritious food that will certainly put a smile on that face. After all, small and thoughtful gestures go a long way.

Sheryl Salis shares these quick and healthy recipes that you can make in no time.
