A simple lunch menu with zucchini thepla, potatoes with sesame seeds, tomato pickle, and turmeric mint buttermilk.
I am super excited to share this lunch/dinner menu. Are you wondering why? I made all the three vegetable-based dishes with the veggies harvested from my backyard. It’s a backyard to kitchen kind of meal.
During the initial shelter-in-place, many trends were going around, like dalgona coffee, banana bread, sourdough bread, IG-live, etc. Apart from doing a couple of IG live and banana bread, I was taking refuge in my backyard garden, and my husband pitched in as well, and this year we got a decent amount of produce with which we could sustain.
We are still harvesting some tomatoes and zucchinis. I am making tomato purees and cutting and freezing zucchini. I have a few more zucchini recipes coming up as well. So stay tuned.
I was procrastinating on making theplas for a while, so decided to make some with zucchini this time. Heeding to my buddy’s suggestion I decided to serve theplas with potato curry with sesame seeds/batata nu shaak. I adapted the recipe from Tarla Dalal’s website and it was really delicious.
And the pickle is Tamil Nadu style tomato thokku. I told you in the aloo paratha post that my pickles will be mostly South Indian style ones, so don’t get shocked. :-) You can make it in bulk and serve it along with idli, dosa, chapati, and many other dishes.
And I included a simple chaas/buttermilk with turmeric and dried mint with this thali.
I wish I could have added some more protein but taste-wise this meal was a well-balanced once and I will definitely make it again.
