It’s been a while that I posted something in this Lunch Series.I have some lunch menus in the draft, other posts took priority but now I am back with a simple weekday lunch that I made today.

Usually I make the pre-prep the night before like cutting the vegetables and getting the pulao masala ground. I store these in the fridge and the next day the meal that you see here can be put together in just half an hour!

While the pulao gets done in the pressure cooker, the rasam can be prepared.While waiting for the pressure to release in the pressure cooker,the crisps can be fried.

Instead of grinding the chutney for the raita, I used up the left over coconut chutney that I made as a side for breakfast. One work less plus no need to throw away the couple of spoons of left over chutney!
