Few tips to plan this menu:-
- You can set the curd to make raita previous day itself. To prepare curd at home – Boil 1 liter milk in a pan. Let it cool down till it is warm. The milk should be warm but not very hot. Add 2 tsp of curd and mix well. Keep it covered for 5-6 hours or till the curd has set. I usually set the curd overnight.
- Chop and grate the required vegetables and refrigerate overnight to use it the next day.
- You can even pressure cook lentil and refrigerate. Just prepare fresh tadka (tempering) next day.
- You can prepare dessert previous day.
- You can serve any pickle of your choice.
- You can add some salad too to the menu.
