South Indian Fish Meals with Vegetables | Special Weekend Lunch Menu | Lunch Menu - 2 | Lunch Ideas

This year when I started my weekend lunch menu series, I was planning to share different menus every Friday. Because of my vacation, everything got delayed and today I thought of posting a menu that I clicked a few months back. I had prepared the entire dishes in the menu on the same day except for makkan peda.  I usually make one vegetable along with this fish meals. However, when I was planning for a post, I added the rasam and an additional vegetable into our normal menu along with fryums and dessert. I prepared it for our Saturday lunch and it was super delicious. Check out my already posted Lunch menu too. Let us move on to the preparations involved in the menu:

Paneer 65 Recipe | How to make Paneer 65 | Paneer Fry

I am crazy about Chicken 65 and Gobi 65. It will be in our starter list, whenever we visit any restaurants. However, I have not tasted Paneer 65 until I visited my friend's place. When I tasted it, the first thing comes to mind is to post it here and when I saw the strips of Paneer 65 in Raks Kitchen, I was super tempted to try immediately. For Christmas 2016, we had few friends at home for lunch and one among them is vegetarian. Along with all the non-veg dishes, I made this Paneer 65 for him. It was a huge hit and even the non-vegetarians started munching it. I am here with the recipe and let us move on to the preparation steps. Do check out my other Paneer Recipes:

Vegetable Stew Recipe | Kerala Style Vegetable Stew | Mixed Vegetables Cooked in Coconut Milk

Anything that is cooked in coconut milk tastes yum and it gives a unique flavour to the curry. I love to experiment recipes with coconut milk and one among them is 'Tirunelveli Sodhi'(Veggies cooked in coconut milk), which pairs well with idiyappam. Similarly, I have posted few non-veg dishes cooked in coconut milk such as Kerala Mutton Stew and Spicy Mutton CurryToday we will learn how to make Kerala style of vegetable stew. This goes well with idiyappam, appam and Neer Dosa. This stew tastes similar to the white kuruma we get in hotel Saravanan Bhavan along with appam. Do check out my Vegetable Kuruma too.

Rava Pongal Recipe | Rava Ghee Pongal | Rava Khara Pongal | Sooji Pongal | Pongal Special Recipes

I was not ready with any new Pongal Special recipe until yesterday. Since we are travelling to India this weekend, I am in the process of cleaning my fridge and kitchen pantry. While cleaning I found a small pack of leftover Rava/Sooji and this recipe of rava pongal comes to mind, which I saw long back in a TV show by Chef Dhamu.  Jany never tastes anything with Rava and hence I made this for Happy and me as our today's breakfast. It came out very well and we both liked it. Over the last few weeks, Happy was very fuzzy in eating food and this pongal came to my rescue today. If you are planning to try this recipe, please don't compromise in the ghee quantity. If the mentioned ghee quantity is reduced, then the pongal will be turned to a sticky gooey paste. According to Chef Damu's comment, the pongal should not stick to the pan while we scoop it and it should slide into the plate beautifully. I had it with Coconut Chutney and Filter Coffee. It goes well with Pongal Gotsu or Peanut Chutney too. Check out my Venn Pongal/Khara Pongal and other Pongal special recipes too. Let us see the preparation:
