Back2School – Lunch Ideas ( Indian Recipes)

Back2School Lunch Ideas – Indian Recipes : Some of our favorite Indian recipes that can help you pack a quick and delicious lunch.

Hello Everyone – Beginning of another week and hope you’ll have a nice long weekend. For all our global
friends/readers – we had a Labor Day – Long Weekend holiday here in the USA, so lots of fun, picnics, BBQ and just a great time with friends n family.

After an awesome response to my First Back2School Post, I’m back (as promised) with more Back to School – Lunchbox Ideas. Now, these recipes are cooked by me personally and most of them use Indian Spices/Flavor.

They can be made in advance or frozen for later uses, each
recipe will contain the required storage details / options. Also who say’s they can be made only for kids – Do try them for yourself too 🙂

 

TIP:
For keeping Sandwiches FRESH or Non-Soggy:

  • Wrap them in Wax Paper
  • Used Thick Bread Slices
  • Spread Butter on both slices before adding the filling – this creates a barrier between any moisture
