My one and only one problem after marriage was thinking of menu. Planning a menu for three times a day is not an easy job. Sometimes I find planning a menu is more difficult than cooking. If you know what to cook or you had planned what to cook then cooking part will take less time and it is more fun too. But without any plan you are entering the kitchen, then staring at the fridge and pantry takes lot of time.
At times, I will irritate my hubby dear asking him what he likes to eat or else will ask my mom what she has made for lunch/dinner? Till date at times planning a menu is a bit tough job to me. No one can eat the same dal, chawal everyday nor the same side dish with roti. As it is said ‘variety is spice of life’, this quote aptly applies for cooking. To make a variety recipe and spice up every meal is something that leads me to choose and cook different side dishes for roti or rice.
