This week in lunch menu ideas corner, I have come up with simple and yummy lunch menu. Bittergourd pitali with Broadbeans curry, cucumber kootu, tomato rasam and rice. Bittergourd Pitali is one of the traditional kuzhambu variety and a common dish in my home. Avarakkai (Broad Beans) poriyal goes fantastic with this yummy kuzhambu. Cucumber is another vegetable which I often use in my kitchen. Cucumber kootu is a wonderful stew which goes well with most of the kuzhambu variety. It is so yummy and refreshing dish especially in summer. Finally tomato rasam, the conventional rasam helps us to digest our whole menu. Serve this yummy menu with hot steaming rice and some papad and enjoy your meal.
Pitlai and cucumber stew needs grinding. There are coconut in all the dishes except rasam. So lets add some pepper cumin seeds to the rasam while garnishing that way we can digest this heavy lunch. Also lets add a clove of garlic to the dal so that we get rid of gas.
