But meals at home don’t have to be cumbersome and time consuming. Satisfying meals can easily be made in under 20 minutes, here is a list of lunch recipes to get you started.
Veggie Rice Mash
Give mashed potatoes a break and give this healthy and nutritious vegetable, lentil, and rice mash a try. A recipe by Aditi Govitrikar, this includes cauliflower, green peas, moong dal, and rice. Oh, and did we mention, a generous amount of ghee?
If you’re attempting the recipe in the monsoons, experts suggest you wash the cauliflower thoroughly in warm water and salt before using it. Also, carefully look through the florets for worms.
