Sunday Delight
What so special about Sunday???That's the only day when we have a feast of all our favorite dishes to enjoy. Normally I don't cook much variety on weekdays as my son and home are not at home for lunch. My hubby doesn't like to bring heavy lunch to office..therefore Sunday I prepared different dishes or enjoy myself eating buffet either in Chinese or Indian Restaurant..rather than going for fast food. I tried out the following dishes and the taste perfectly. What a causal lunch to enjoy a sunny Sunday afternoon with tempting meal for the tummy. Here goes the recipes for you to try ,taste and give comments:The serving size for all the dishes about five people......Serve these dishes with steaming plain rice or any variety of rice dishes like tomato rice or ghee rice...
