Indian Meal Plan with recipes for a week. Day wise weekly Indian Meal plan with recipes, grocery list and meal prep tips for everyday dinner under 30 minutes.
Now after successfully (well mostly) going with my Weekly India menu plan of the Week-1 and Week-2 I am already writing this menu plan for week three. I have always been an organized person most of the times because otherwise with the work schedule it is sometimes so easy not to cook and order in something.
Cooking at home is something that I really don't want to compromise on. There are hardly very healthy options available when you order food or eat out (I prefer to stick to our once or twice a week eat out sessions most of the times when we are not traveling).
I mostly plan my meals in advance according to schedule. When many of you told me about the lack of availability of Weekly Indian Menu plans on the internet and requested for same, I saw it as an opportunity of bringing in more structure to plan a weekly meal plan for an Indian household. I am so glad I am doing this because for me it means less time in cooking and we as a family are eating more healthy homecooked food.

Weekly Meal Plan for Week Three
Monday blues can be overcome with this wonderful meal combination of kala chana gravy made by the chana soaked and boiled over the weekend and quick aloo karela sabzi with roti.
Brinjals is one vegetable that is available in abundance during summers.It is pairing with masoor dal and some salad and all we have is a blissful Tuesday.
Time for some rice and what better than after 3 days of a new week. My tasty one-pot rajma pulao Bowl of Kachumber Raita with Papad and Pickle fulfills all the cravings.

Kashmir is not only famous for its beauty but food also.I shopped some baby potatoes over the weekend and decided to cook some authentic Kashmiri style dum aloo.It goes well with roti and some raita and we are set for yet another day.
After Kashmir, time to try some international cuisine and I am going to make some Italian pasta and salad -an easy 20-minute minute recipe.
Weekend is there and an authentic paneer dish-Paneer tikka masala is the paneer dish which is going to be cooked in my kitchen
Yet another lazy Sunday most of the times It is dedicated to eating out so maybe a late Sunday Brunch or this bhuni khichdi… But mostly I go with the flow.
