Lunch / Dinner

    Cooking in dorm room is possible. Even if you have never cooked earlier - you will be able to fix your own meals too. All you need are a few essentials like portable cooking equipment (mini rice cooker, toaster with grill or a microwave), some spoons, plates and few grocery items. Check out these easy to cook recipes which I have been cooking since many years.

    I hope you will find inspiration in some of these and include them in your daily menu.
    I have divided into various sections such as-
    Salads and sandwich fillings, 
    Waffles, Poha, Pongal/kitchdee, Upma, Idli
    Dal and Kadhi for rice and bread, 
    One dish meal, 
    Soup and shorba
    Side dish for roti and bread
     click on the titles or pictures to see the recipes

    Lunch recipes
    Some of these lunch recipes can be fixed even without cooking. Also, these can be cooked in the same non-stick rice cooker pan  in which you have cooked the breakfast . Just wipe it
    with a paper towel and you are ready to continue with lunch preparation.
