Mediterranean Inspired Breakfast Bowl

I have another savory breakfast idea for today. It is inspired from my favorite cuisine, yes you guessed it right, Mediterranean cuisine!! Plenty of beans, vegetables, olive oil.. perfect for a filling and satisfying breakfast. Chickpea can be replaced with any other bean, and for bean hummus, play with your favorite beans.

It is clean, gluten-free, vegan, diary-free and above all quicknhealthy. Serve this for breakfast or for lunch, or for dinner as well :-).

I would like to remind my non-Indian readers that curry is not a spice in itself like most of you think, but it is a mixture of spices which varies in mix and proportion based on who is making the 'curry' :). 

Sorghum - 3/4 cup (Soaked overnight) Multi-color bell peppers - 4 Tomato - 3-4 (pureed) Red onion - 1 small (chopped fine) Garlic - 3-4 cloves (minced) Green chilly - 1-2 (minced) (substitute with re…
