For Lunch I prefer Rice with rotis, sambar,rasam,curd based on any state preparation either Tamilnadu, Gujarati, Karnataka or Andhra but rice is a must. On no account I compromised with prepared rice such as Briyani, Tamarind rice, vegitable rice etc., for lunch and in case no rice with sambar etc., I took only curd rice. For night any item with any side dish I took.
My wife is an expert in making varieties of Dosas. She is an expert in making Ravva Dosa and Pesarattu. I like pesarttu and upma combination. I like this item made by her. These items I will take as Dinner or breakfast. I fond of eating Pullihors made by my wife. It is called tamarind rice and will be very tasty.
Knowledge is power.
Now coming to Lunch. The first choice is Rice and Fish curry. Second is - Rice, Moong dal and Mixed vegetable (Aviyal). The third is - Rice, Chicken curry with curd, Pickle and Papad.
Abot Dinner. Kanji, Payaru, Appalam, pickle. Or Puttu, Payaru, Banana, Appalam and Sugar.
Out of the North Indian dishes, I like Aaloo Paratha with curd, pickle and sugar.
No life without Sun
My breakfast can be filled with masala dosa, pongal with side dishes. Actually without side dishes I don't take any meal of the day. More than the main food side dishes are my first preference.
Lunch can be rice and sambar filled with veggies. It can be radar with papas. Curd rice adds satisfaction as a part of my lunch. Dinner can be dosa, chappathi or rice. Greens and vegetable curry can be consumed with rice served hot.
