Simple Home Style Telugu Lunch Menu (Vegetarian meal) | ezcookbook

Planning for a weekend lunch is quite interesting, also helps in fuss-free cooking. This simple vegetarian lunch is pretty common at my home during weekends. Though we try many exotic recipes outside and even at home, nothing can match a typical home style food. As we all got use to such fresh and tasty home food everytime and also it provides a family re-union during meal time. Every body is busy with their own schedules but having a meal together brings an oppurtunity for a memorable time with your kids.

The meal  consist of rice, pappu saaru(rasam), Kalchina Vankaya Koora(Roasted Brinjal Tomato Curry), Aratikaya Vepudu(Plaintain Fry) and with homecurd curd. This is simple and very healthy meal that is sufficient for a family of 2-4 persons. The recipes are typical home style especially with Andhra Touch.

The ratio is 1:3 or 1:2 for those who prefer the rice to be little grainy.  Either pressure cook for 3 sounds and simmer for 5 minutes before turn off the fire. Or cook the rice in an open pot with sufficient water. You can fill water till the brim of the pot and cook the rice until done soft and mushy. Remove from stove and drain the excess water called starch. If you have rice cooker follow the pressure cooker procedure mentioned above.
