Here, we are back with our new Kids Lunch Box that has some delicious recipes such as Punjabi Rajma Masala, Steamed Rice And Curd. 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
Punjabi Rajma Masala, which is also known as the North Indian Red Kidney Beans Curry is a very famous recipe from the North India.
Rajma Masala popularly known as Rajma Chawal is considered as a comfort food in a Punjabi or a North Indian home. This makes a one dish meal, when the Rajma Masala is served along with steamed hot rice where the wonderful flavours of the rajma comes out when chewed along with rice.
With this Punjabi Rajma Masala, we have served Steamed Rice. This combination is also a popular street food, especially in Winters. You can also serve a Jeera Rice with Punjabi Rajma Masala.
You can include one bowl of curd in your meals, as it helps in digestion and is also good for your body in summers. You can also make different raitas adding vegetables and fruits to include in this meal plate.
