Full meal in 30 minutes

Meal will be made within 10 to 30 minutes. I think most of the time it happens in 30 minutes if planned; half work is done or spending little time previous day.

But without idea giving just half an hour and a kitchen with stove ,microwave oven for cooking. It will be real fun if you made a proper meal right from beginning.

Firstlythere are some raw eaten vegetable which made cooking easier I took cabbage and chopped finely to get 2 cups within 2 mins.Wash 2 cups of basmati rice and keep aside.

Heat a heavy bottomed kadai with oil or ghee side by side.

Then add thejpatta/bayleaves ,cloves ,and cinnamon stick and cumin seed,slit green chillies till it turns golden brown, add cabbage and stir for a min.

Add 2 heaped teaspoon garam masala(I used my mom's homemade masala) stir add 4 to 5 cups water . I used water heater in a min u will get boiling water.

Then add rice and salt stir,simmer and cover it with a lid .15 to 20 minutes it will be done. Gobi masala bhath is ready.

Take 4 0r 5 medium sized Potato cut it half , cover it with a kitchen towel keep it high for 8 minutes.

Take 2 Carrot and sieve it.I had a desicated coconut 1/4 cup and 2 green chillies grind it in a mixie.Take the potato and put it in the water for 2 min.

Take a tempering vessel or a little pan heat oil and add mustard seed and asafoetida and curry leaves.Take a bowl and mix the sieved carrot ,coconut mixture and half of the seasoning and 1 tblspn curd and bit salt.Carrot pachadi is ready.

Peel off the skin and cut it in medium sized.In the seasoned kadai put the potato ,salt ,1/2 tsp corriander powder,pinch or 1/3 tsp turmeric powder and 1 tsp red chilli powder stir for 2 mins.Potato curry is ready.

Now time to serve .It takes extra 5 mins for serving and garnishing masalabhath with corriander leaves and desicated coconut and taking a snap .

Some other Express meal in my kitchen are
With some Semimade products
With some Leftovers
With some Batter

I like the way to use a 3 veggies in one meal, that become the meal more nutritious and healthy to eat plus it take much less time than other dishes and lastly this a dry meal which is easy to carry and take a meal in train or while travelling by any medium.
