a simple healthy lunch menu .... and some everyday gyan ...


Every day food needs to be as easy going as everyday gyan . You would know what i mean if you have seen this wonderful blog of Corinne . 

My food has always been something i can rustle up within an hour starting from scratch , even if i have to chop a lot of vegetables . Talking about a lot of vegetables , i was telling a friend today that i like buying my own veggies and washing them nicely and even chopping them with ease . Handling all the colorful vegetables feels nice and refreshing . She told me it is just because i am a big foodie . Tell me do you like doing all this ?

If you don't like handling the vegetables , get help ...or get a machine . But don't stop eating these beauties as they will make you feel a lot better...they are endowed with all the goodness.

About this lunch platter , my North Indian friends will be so familiar with this kind of food ...may be some of you will find it a bit more colorful than your own everyday food . If so , this is to inspire you to eat more colors .

The recipes are simple and workable for an average cook , if you plan in advance the assembling becomes easier and quicker and that stands true for any meal you plan for the day...we enjoyed this lunch for this mixed beans in a spicy spinach gravy . We all love our rajma chawal and chhole chawal and this mixed beans and spinach dish makes the beans and rice platter more promising . The red cabbage stir fry and a zucchini and onion raita make me happy with the crunch and color they provide to the meal.... Click and go to Corinne's blog to see the recipe . I am sharing my lunch with the readers of Everyday Gyan this time . I will be pleased to get a few comments there as well....

Thank you.
