ITS MONDAY.........TIFFIN TIME!!!!

Its monday again.

The day,that is spent cooking, packed lunches for four of our friends,who come after work to collect thier tiffins, or "dabbas"(meaning boxes)

I give them wholesome, healthy, home cooked Indian meals for five days and all they do is freeze it and heat it whenever they want to eat. All set for a week.

The planning offcourse starts three days in advance. The major part of the planning is "what should I make?"..............once that is figured out, the rest is easy. And really speaking its just a day of cooking, and my husbands and my meals are also taken care off.

I am often asked by my friends and my mom, what do u make? everyone is in a dilemma, scratching their heads, thinking about what should be served at the dinner table......so i thought why not put my every monday tiffin menus, on my blog. This way those who read can get a few menu ideas and even share a few ideas.

I try to give as much of variety as possible, coz or else I will get tired of cooking the same thing over and over again. More over, most of the stuff I cook, is easy to freeze and the taste doesn't alter once reheated. So that is that.

I do not want to waste more time giving silly intros, here is the menu, that i made this mon.

MON: fettuccinie in mushroom alfredo sauce + garlic bread

TUE: aloo parantha + curd

WED: rajhma masala + jeera rice
