School Lunch Box Ideas & Recipes: Rajma Chawal is one great lunch box dish that stays and tastes well even when cold. I usually pack it along with yogurt or with steamed vegetables or sliced raw carrots and children simply love it. Due to its high protein and carb content, the Rajma Chawal keeps the children full and nourished with energy and nutrition throughout the day.
Things you can keep ready for the morning lunch box
Cook the rice and Rajma the previous day, so on the day of packing the lunchbox, making the Rajma Masala can be done in a jiffy.
What is has?
- Carbohydrates from Rice (you can use brown rice)
- Protein from Rajma and Yogurt
Tip: I freeze the yogurt bowl in the freezer the previous night so it does not turn sour when packed for lunch on summer days
