A weekly meal planner with veggie and bean-based curries and more! Of course, it’s customizable! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, my meal planner has it all!
I am back with meal planners after a short break. It doesn’t mean that I wasn’t planning my meals. I was planning and writing it down in my notebook or on my magnetic weekly meal planner for the fridge.
Are you new to meal planning and prepping or looking for new ideas?
Check out all my previous meal planners. I have been sharing some vegetarian meal planners for the past two years. I have shared over 35+ Indian vegetarian meal planners, and you can check them out all under the “meal planner” category.
This week’s meal planner.
This week it’s all about curries. India is known for its curries, and every regional cuisine has unique and exciting curry recipes, which I will explore more in the coming weeks. Not all the curries are hard to make, and with prep work, you can make them quite easily. I have provided some of the alternative options as well.
As always, I haven’t shared a few recipes on my blog. But eventually I will be sharing one by one. I will be sharing rough recipes on my Instagram. Follow me on my Instagram to see how I pack the lunch for kiddo every day, new recipes, and everyday meals.
You can do the prep work and cook these dishes quickly on that particular day, or you can batch cook them over the weekend and freeze them too. I started cooking my Monday and Tuesday meals on Sunday, so I don’t need to worry about them. Yes, I have the bottle gourd curry and aloo methi sitting in my fridge as I am writing this. :-) I plan my meals depending upon my work week and kiddo’s classes.
- Prepare the idli-dosa batter.
- Boil the potatoes and let them cool and refrigerate.
- Soak the beans. Drain and store or cook, cool and store them for the curry.
- Soak and sprout the moth beans.
- Chop the required vegetables.
- Knead the roti dough in bulk and knead the day before.
