I personally think that deciding what to have for lunch can be difficult. It’s important to have variety. Of course it also important that should be is nutritious, healthy and we look forward to eating! Something easy to prepare the night before is an added benefit. Here are some of my go-to suggestions for an easy and delicious lunch!
Cream Cheese Sandwiches
These are my favorite not to mention super simple to make. If you are doing these for kids, you may skip the ginger and green chili.
Black Eyed Peas Salad
This is a popular salad among my friends especially for a takeout lunch. Often I use this salad to make a wrap that makes for a very satisfying lunch. To make a wrap I use tortillas or left over plain parathas. Simply spread the hari cilantro chutney over tortillas or parathas and put about 1/4 cup of salad length wise leaving about 1 inch from the top and fold it tightly like burrito.
: This is the ultimate healthy comfort food. Khichdi is basically prepared with rice and lentils. Adding a few vegetables with spicy tomato seasoning makes khichdi a complete meal.
Yogurt rice or curd rice
This is a popular South Indian dish. This dish tastes especially great on hot summer days.
Spinach ParathaThese parathas can be prepared two to three days in advance. Add a side of spicy pickle and you have a great lunch!
