Meal Planning Mondays ~ Meal Plan 1: Week 14/9 to 19/9 ~ New weekly series!

Meal Planning has been one of my new year resolutions for the year 2015. So after doing the meal planning in an excel sheet for about 7 to 8 months, I finally have a feeling that I am getting into this routine. So, from now on, I will be sharing the weekly meal plan. It will be predominantly Indian food because that’s what we have grown up eating.  I will put in links to the recipes as and when I get them up in the blog. So, it’s not all into the place right now, but it will be soon.

The Meal Plan with the shopping list for the same is as under:
Note: Since Indian pantries are usually well stocked, my shopping lists will be brief. The idea is all the basic spices, flours and legumes, essentially, anything that can be easily stored is usually bought in bulk. The things that we buy on the weekly basis are fresh vegetables and perishables like dairy produce, loaves of bread and very rarely used ingredients. However, as a checklist, I have habit of checking for the vegetables/legumes to be used the next day. This is so that I can buy them the previous night, incase I have forgotten to buy them on my weekly grocery errand.
