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.

    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.
