In this post, I have shared a list of lockdown recipes for Indian vegetarian breakfast, dinner, lunch and snacks that uses minimal ingredients, vegetables, oil and ghee at home. I have also made a downloadable PDF for easy access. When I shared the collection of upma varieties, some of my readers asked me to post a collection of easy Indian breakfast’/ dinner and lunch recipes using non perishable foods, uses minimum or no vegetables and rice during this lockdown period / home quarantine period.
Not only that, many people working from home find it really difficult to manage kitchen, household works, kids and office work together without house maids. For those people, I have shared some easy breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes which can be prepared instantly with less chopping works, minimum vegetables and dry ingredients.
Most of the recipes I shared here are with dry ingredients like pulses, legumes, flours like wheat flour, ragi flour, rice flour, Poha/ pressed rice, sago, rava which can be stored for long time. I have given recipes with basic vegetables like potato, tomato, onion for side dishes.
Lunch recipes given in this list are one pot rice recipes that can be prepared quickly under few minutes in a pressure cooker, few kuzhambu varieties without any vegetables or with a single vegetable like potato, cabbage, cauliflower etc. Most of these recipes can be stored in refrigerator and use it for few days. Infact, they taste more better day by day. Just reheat and serve.
You can alter the recipes based on the ingredients in hand.i.e by using chilli powder instead of chillies, using frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones, by using tomato puree instead of chopped tomatoes, desicated coconut etc. Finally I have also shared few snacks and sweets recipes which needs less oil and ghee by getting ideas from my friend Shalini and my sister Radha.
During this pandemic situation, I am trying to include foods that are rich in Vitamin c, anti fungal, anti viral Indian spices to improve and boost immunity. So I am taking pepper, cumin, garlic, ginger, onion, turmeric in the form of rasam, thogayal, pachadi, podi varieties, chutney varieties, turmeric milk, garlic milk. I have added all these recipes in the list. I also consume fruits like mosambi, orange, gooseberry, muskmelon, apple and watermelon in my regular diet to keep up the immunity levels. I will add more recipes using gooseberry in my upcoming post and include them in this list.
I hope this list of lockdown recipes would be helpful to you to decide on what to cook during this home quarantine period. I know I am late in sharing list but its better late than never . Ok friends, lets check out the list of Indian recipes that can be prepared during this lockdown period with the available ingredients in our pantry/ kitchen.
