Mini Meals is a common meal in any restaurants in South India. The traditional mini meals always have a sweet and 2 variety rice, a curd rice and a poriyal or crisps. I always prefer mini meals to full meals as I would not be able to eat all the dishes in the full meals. Mostly men have the capacity to eat full meals but I have seen most of the women prefer mini meals because of the limited quantity and the varieties. This week, in SouthIndian Lunch menu Ideas, I have given this easy and simple mini meals. I really love to have mini meals in home often and though, we are doing different dishes, it is quite simple as we need to do only small quantities of different varieties. Variety rice in the mini meals is our choice. I like lemon rice and coriander leaves rice along with curd rice. Generally mini meals include a sweet which would mostly be kesari, so I have also made kesari to go with this menu. Finally we need a sidedish to have these wonderful menu. Most of the restaurants serve only potato chips / vazhakkai chips or sometimes if the vegetable prices is affordable, then they will serve kadamba curry.

First start with choping of vegetables for sambar rice, coriander rice and kadamba curry. When I am done, I kept the dal and rice in the pressure cooker.  When the dal is getting cooked, I started with kesari, my favourite sweet. By the time, I finished the sweet, my dal is ready so I quickly proceeded with sambar rice followed by other variety rices. Finally I did seasoning for curd rice and mixed all the rices. My yummy mini meals is now ready!
