This week, its vegetable rich lunch menu. Yeah, all the main dishes are rich in vegetable. Omam Vendhaya kuzhambu with ladies finger, Chow Chow kootu, Brinjal rasam, curd, rice and papad. Simple and veggie rich menu, a healthy menu for our family. 

This is one of the simple menu which our family would love. Vendhaya kuzhambu is a very tasty main dish. We can add any vegetable to the dish. Generally, I use pumpkin or ladysfinger. This time, I have ladysfinger in fridge so I have used it. Next is Chow Chow kootu. We all know Chow Chow is nutrition rich veggie. So I have made stew out of it. My daughters always love stew compared to poriyal varieties. It is very easy for me to feed them if I make stew instead of poriyal. I mix some dal with hot rice along with ghee and mix the stew. That would be more healthier for kids also.

Next is rasam. Generally tomato is the only veggie (Sorry its a fruit variety) we add in rasam. So, this time, I have selected Brinjal as an additional veggie. Brinjal rasam is a spicy and yummy rasam variety. Oil fried brinjal added to tamarind-tomato rich pulp along with spices to make a wonderful rasam. Finally serve curd, papad and hot steaming rice. Ok.. Lets see the individual recipes that make up this yummy menu!
