I didn’t know about this in time to not make lunch for today, but staff at my school were treated to an Indian buffet made in our teaching kitchen. I was most of the way through my already-packed lunch when a bestie/colleague came to my classroom as she hadn’t seen me in the staffroom on account of needing to supervise some students at lunch. I quickly rinsed out my bento box, and she filled it with a sampling of all the veggie options for me – what a treat. This is her first foray into filling a bento box, and I think she did an amazing job!
In the left, there’s dal, lentil and rice pilaf, steamed basmati rice, and lightly curried vegetables. In the right, there’s a vegetable samosa, turmeric chickpeas and potatoes, and a cucumber salad with cilantro. This bento made a very tasty dinner. The hubs plays golf on Thursday nights, and as he doesn’t like spicy things, dinner was taken care of!
