Dinner Day 11 to 20 | 30 Days of Homemade Vegetarian Meals

What started out as only a "30-day challenge" for me to cook some dishes and serve myself a plate full of freshly prepared food for dinner has now become a fun thing that I feel like continuing.  I get into the kitchen at about 5pm and it takes me about 1-2 hours from start to finish.  If I could reduce that time somehow, probably freeze or chop or roast or prepare some things ahead of time, then it might work out even better.

And once this becomes a routine-like thing to have homemade dinners as often as I can make, I guess I will start looking for another 30-day challenge.  Because if I don't challenge myself to do better, who will?!

Day 11 - It is Ekadashi today and Alok is fasting.  So for dinner tonight I cooked Sabudana (tapioca pearl) Khichdi, Singhare (water chestnut flour) ki Poori, made some salted-spiced makhana (lotus seeds) and salted-spiced peanuts, aloo ka halwa, vrat wale aloo ki sabzi, and phool makhana kheer.

 Day 12 - Returned home late after taking kids out to a play area so for dinner tonight I cooked only Spinach Paratha...and the rest on the side are: lemon pickle, fryums, carrot, yogurt, and wafer rolls.
