Mothers’ day 2020 will be celebrated on 10th May this year. There is no need to retell the importance of a mother in a person’s life. Their presence is stitched to our lives, both visibly and invisibly. Every year, a day is devoted to them, in an effort to honor and celebrate them. A mother plays a pivotal role in shaping and managing the family. From cleaning, washing, cooking, and managing the home, a mother does so many things but very little we acknowledge that. We all remember how moms used to prepare breakfast in a hurry so that we won’t be late for school. We used to eat simple mom-made dishes with such enjoyment that we don’t even find that in restaurant foods. We have all had one or two favorite dishes prepared by our mother.
So, to remember and relive those beautiful times, we have put together a list of homemade food recipes made by mothers that made our childhood awesome. Let’s dive into those sweet memories and thank them for their unconditional love.
