Some years ago, I would religiously share weekly menu plan on my blog.
I thought of spending some time on this and doing it for the coming week.

(Make the usual cabbage poriyal but with the addition of chana dal soaked for 2 hours and drained)
(this is a quick weeknight version)

B: Semia upma, chutney
L: Sesame rice, broad beans poriyal, raita

Some notes regarding the menu plan for the week
- I have 8 ripened avocados in my fridge which is why the regular feature in this week’s breakfast.
- I also have Usili made and frozen as I made a double batch last week. Always do this for time consuming dishes like usili, masalas and gravies so you can make it 2-3 times with the effort of making it once.
- Avial kuzhambu is avial with a lot more liquid so it can be had mixed with rice.
