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 or Lunch in under 30 minute. Here is another edition of the Indian meal plans series. A balanced diet is really important for a healthy life. My intention of starting this series was to shed a little load off your shoulders. I do the meal planning, you just have to execute:). Still find it overwhelming? You can start with these 20 Minutes recipes.
This meal plan is for mothers, students living alone, and the single working people who live away from their folks. You might have a cook but it is you who needs to buy the groceries and plan the menu. It is quite disturbing if you have to keep planning for dinner each day. It is much better to plan it ahead so that you don't have to wreck your brains on a daily basis.
With all the hard work you sometimes tend to ignore the food schedule. Eating food on time is a good habit everyone should develop. Skipping meals or having delayed meals can make your stomach bloat which leads to little irritants like a headache. It is better to be smart! Take out the time in the weekend to buy the listed groceries, pin up the meal plan on your kitchen board and get started. You can freeze the leftovers and make different leftover recipes the next day.
This week’s plan is a mix and match of different cuisines I felt would go really well together. You get to taste the best of all in very simple dishes.
In case you don’t want to follow this set meal plan more Indian Meal Plans here. There is also a 20 Minutes meals section on the website, so even if you are not really prepared for the whole week’s commitment you can cook a decent Indian meal in under 20 Minutes.
