One of my favorite weekday meal is 'Chicken Pulao' aka Murg Pulao, because it is a one pot meal and takes very little time to cook. This wholesome dish is super tasty and goes best with raita or any type of curry. To make the pulao more healthy you can add add veggies like potatoes, carrots, beans etc. Along with that cashews and raisins can also be added. This is a very good lunch box option for adults and I can guarantee you that the box will return empty every time without a single complain. Try this in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.

During the lockdown period (because of Covid 19) I made noodles for evening snack one day. After serving the noodles everyone in my family was looking for Tomato Ketchup but there were very little of ketchup left in the jar. The shops were out of stock at that time and that's when I decided to make Tomato Ketchup at home. The taste of homemade Ketchup is much much better than the readymade one, no aroma of preservative and less sugary. I have made it with onion, ginger and garlic but you can definitely skip them if you want. My tomato ketchup recipe contains kashmiri red chili powder for color, instead of that you can also use very little amount of beetroot. Tomato Ketchup can be made in various ways with versatile ingredients. I kept the recipe very simple and it came out really yummy. Do give it a try and let me know how it turned for you.
