Indian weekly meal planning + weekend prep

Super late to the menu plan party for this week. My dad flew to India last week and Chuttu started daycare. A lot of things were happening that I didn’t have time to put together a menu on Thursday. Nevertheless, here I am sharing my next week menu with you:

If you’ve been following my blog, I don’t follow a set rules on the menu plan. I change it according to our current lifestyle. This week I included Snacks in my menu planning.

Do you know why? Because I’ll be sharing my weekend-prep with you in a video if you’d like to join me. I do prepare some of the snacks during weekend to keep healthy snacks around the house all.the.time.

Below is my weekend-prep list. Would love it if you can join me as well:

  • Chia seeds energy balls
  • Puffed rice
  • Cooked toor + bengal gram dals for paruppu usili
  • Cooked lentils for snacks
  • Cooked moong dal (for sambar + instant payasam)
