5 Dishes That Will Make You Crave Indian Food for Lunch
When the clock ticks twelve and the question of the day arises (what’s for lunch?) you may not realize that having Indian food for lunch is an option. However, there are several dishes on the menu that make for the perfect meal at lunchtime while still giving you the ultimate Indian food experience.
Soup is often recommended because it is filling enough to satisfy your hunger while not being too heavy to evoke that afternoon slump. Manchau is the ideal Indian food for lunch, as it combines a chili seared vinegar soy sauce with carrots, bell peppers, cabbage, crispy noodles, cilantro and tempered ginger and garlic. These ingredients create a soup that is rich and full of flavor.
2. Paneer 65
If you like spicy food, this dish is perfect for you. The paneer is served with green chilies, curry leaves and a red hot yogurt sauce that is full of spice. Complete the dish with a side of naan bread to soak up some of the flavor!
3. Vegetables in Spinach Masala
The idea of eating a plate full of vegetables can seem unexciting; however these veggies are coated in a sauce made up of garlic, ginger, spinach, cumin seeds and curry, which will make you want to have Indian food for lunch on a regular basis!
4. Tikka Salad
Instead of adding chicken tikka to your salad, there is always the option of adding pudina paneer kabob which is paneer that has been coated in a mint sauce. This delicious cheese dish, combined in a salad of sliced cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, croutons, red onions and romaine lettuce is a great option for lunch! You can choose from an array of dressing options depending on your preference, however one of the most common is mango vinaigrette.
5. Malai Kofta
This dish is great if you happened to skip breakfast, since it’s heartier and slightly more filling than some other options. Malai Kofta is essentially vegetable balls soaked in an onion and tomato cream sauce. The balls are made from cauliflower, peas, potatoes, carrot, cabbage and paneer.
The best thing about Indian food for lunch is that there are multiple layers of flavors in every dish, which makes the experience satisfying and nourishing. Visit our website to browse through our spectacular menu and choose from an array of mouth-watering dishes!
