With the Summer heat catching up, planning what goes into the main meals of the the day has become all the more important for me. I started the #SummerMealPlanning hashtag on Instagram and it took off so well; not only for me but I found many found this planner very useful. So here I am in my first planner for Archana's Kitchen, sharing it with you, to make your lives easier too. This weeks menu are recipes already on Archana's Kitchen that are being tried and tested many times over to give you the perfect recipe. Most of these recipes serve 4 to 5 people — we are a family of 2 adults, 2 pre teen boys and a house help. And with all the cooking, we very rarely have leftovers. If you have a larger family, you might want to consider making a larger quantity or if you have a smaller family then you can half it.
