This is my lunch box(es) with Aloo kura (Potato curry) and Pesarapappu Charu from last night. I usually cook for 2 meals at night, so we can pack them up for lunch the next day. I make a big pot of sambhar, pappu (dal) or rasam and lasts for atleast 3-4 meals for the 2 of us. Also I try to make curries with a little gravy, so it doesn’t get too dry for lunch the next day. If not we take a small container of dal or rasam on the side.
I tend to make white rice 2-3 times a week, pasta, brown rice and other grains make up for the rest of the days. I want to make rotis more often, but I’m not too good at making them and don’t have the time with a 13 month old pulling on my leg all the time.
I need some tips on making rotis quickly on weeknights, let me know how you guys usually manage. Any and all the tips are welcome. Also do you make sandwiches for lunch the day before or pack everything up and assemble at work? I’d love to take sandwich to work but I’m not sure if it’s going to end up being a soggy mess.
