“A family that eats together, stays together!!” I strongly believe in this famous phrase and even follow the same too! For these busy livelihood, its near to impossible, for the entire family to have at least one meal together. Hence, I make it a point that every Saturday / Sunday / both days my family sits together, and have the special lunch that I prepare. We all sit on floor, yes the proper Indian way of having a meal. My kids arrange the plates, crockery, I serve everyone, we chit-chat about different topics, laugh, fave fun (my husband’s fav way), share and eat!!  🙂

This is a very simple, easy yet filling meal. The prep time of 10 mins is just for cutting the vegetables needed.

For plain rice, I mostly use my rice cooker. Its the first thing I start my cooking with.  Brinjal Curry / Vankaya Koora is a very quick recipe made on stove-top within 12-15 mins. Fried the papads also on stove-top.

 I cooked both Muddha Pappu & Mukkala Pulusu one after another, in my stove-top pressure cooker. Muddha pappu & mukkala pulsu is a match made in heaven….Its the best among the food combos of Telugu Veg Meals. 🙂  Any telugu(s) who love it? 🙂

I made the Moringa Leaves Chutney powder (rich in iron & fibre) last month. It stays good up to 3-4 months.

All items made simultaneously but attentively.🙂 Multi-tasking and using all gadgets available is the key.
