Indian Lunch Box Recipes, Lunch Boxes for Work, Lunch Box Special, Lunch Box Series

In an attempt to record what I cook for our packed lunch, I started this Lunch Box Series. All of us at home including our 3 children carry packed lunch boxes. So it becomes a real circus every morning to get the lunch box ready by the time each of us leave.

These are what the elders in the home eat or carry, while its a different menu for the kids.

I pack hubby dear's food in a hot box, though he says it hardly remains hot by afternoon. So I try to cook food that tastes good even if cold. And on retrospect, these ended up being mostly the typical south Indian meals.
