I love Biryani, especially Paneer Biryani. It is a festive meal for almost all vegetarians. This Paneer Biryani is a simple one pot meal made in a pressure cooker. Unlike the normal Veg Biryani there is not much chopping work or grinding involved here. The only step that u have to plan ahead is to marinate the paneer. I usually make Biryani during weekends. It is an easy lunch box option to make during weekdays too.

Palak Poori

September 25, 2014 Breakfast/DinnerKids BayLunch Box MenuRoti/Paratha  7 comments

Poori and tomato thokku has always been my favourite combo since childhood. This Palak Poori is a slight twist to the normal poori. Its a very good method to sneak-peek some spinach for kids who are fussy about it. This does not require any side dish as such, just goes well with any pickle or simple raita. You can serve it for breakfast/dinner or pack it for kids lunch. Am sure kids would love the green color Palak Poori.
