mutter paneer, lachha paratha

For this lunch menu series, these days I don’t plan ahead, just plan, cook and post the very same day. Today when I was going through my recipe index and the lunch menus, I thought I should post something that I haven’t covered yet. The first thing I could recognize is lachha paratha. And mutter paneer. So I knew I am going to make this. My kid, though he likes North Indian lunch, he also needs  steamed basmati rice and dal to finish his meals. Though I have not kept rice in this picture, I kept basmati rice for him. That’s it, my lunch menu is planned. I had Jamun made with ready made mix that my MIL gave it to me to make it for her boys. She wanted to make it when we went to Chennai few month back, but she had no time. So she gave it to me and asked me to make after coming here. 2 days back I made it for them. I added this to my menu to make it more tempting to you Winking. So here’s how I cooked this week’s lunch with Lachha paratha, mutter paneer, dal fry, jamun, curd, pickle.
