Indian Meal Planning – Feb 2018 3rd Week

I hope you had a good weekend. We didn’t have good weather this weekend and stayed indoors mostly. I really can’t wait for summer. Anyone else feels the same?

I have leftover spagetti from tonight and I’m going to make spagetti frittata for breakfast on Tuesday. The leftover spagetti will be frozen for later use.

Since kids eat their lunch at the daycare, I try to give Indian food for dinner. Especially, lemon rice is my son’s favorite. So, he’d prefer that more than any other food on days I make lemon rice. I still need to do Indian store shopping sometime this week for the weekend cooking.

Indian Menu Planning – Week of Jan 22/18

So I didn’t get a chance to make Jambalaya last week as planned. So, adding it to this week’s menu as well.
Although I own a waffle maker, it’s been so long since I made waffles. So hoping to surprise my son with a waffle on one of the mornings.
Besides fried tofu, do you know any other Tofu recipes that you like? I kinda have love/hate relationship with Tofu. I like it in Chinese food, but not a great fan if I have to make it at home (I still push everyone to eat because it’s good for health. Yikes!)

Indian Meal Preparation On A Weekday Night

I shot this video late at night and edited late night as well. Funny story, one of the edits got missed and the video starts with a bang. It’s definitely funny to see the missed edit. You’re welcome to laugh! 🙂

Here I am sharing what I plan during weekday night to prepare for next day cooking. I hope you find it useful.

December 2nd Week Indian Menu Planning

This week’s menu is quite different from our family’s regular menu for a reason. It’s going to be a loong week and I decided to simplify the already simple menu to survive the week 😉
Where I come from, lentil rice is a staple meal that’s made quite often. None of my little family members like it and I’m finally making it just for me.
Have you guys tried sweet Thai coconut sauce from Costco? It’s my most favorite salad dressing and I’m eating more salad lately just for the dressing.

Indian Weekly Menu – Gungura Pappu Special

You guys, mom left already and I’m back to meal planning for the week.

Above is my menu for this week. It makes my cooking so much easier and at least I don’t have to get takeouts on weekday nights.

We bought jackfruit this weekend and I made curry out of the nut today. Not bad for the first attempt.
Tomorrow, I’m making gongura pappu for lunch. It’s going to be my first attempt as well. I have gongura leaves cleaned, washed, and stored in the freezer. It shouldn’t take more than few mins of prep in the morning before I dump everything in the Instantpot for Gongura puppu. Let’s hope it will come out good
