    Default 30 Minute Meals

    I have been thinking for a while to have a thread like this.

    (1) Rachel Ray in Food network, does a show - 30 minute meals. I thought we could have one like that, so for those working, studying, they can just spend 30 mins, but still get good meal - lunch or dinner. no breakfast

    (2) It can be you own recipes, or from anyone, anywhere, but that DOESNT mean you can cut n paste from sites or give links, you should hv atleast tried it or tasted it. PLEASE DONT POST LINKS, but just the recipe.

    (3)Also recipes can be with, canned foods or readymade stuffs too. - Again the restriction is, dont post all the readymade stuff you can think about, if you had tried the readymade mix and if its worth the money then post it. Many readymades suck, thats why

    This is going to be a sticky, a place where people will come and search for the easy recipes. If I have time, I will try to update the names of the recipes, with the page number in this post. - Like an easy search. So PLEASE AVOID SIDEYs, unless its cooking questions or doubts from the recipe posted.

    Recipes Thanks Nana for teaching this hyperlink thingy, very useful

    (1) Kuskha
    (2) Rava Dosa
    (3) Wheat Flour Dosa (You can also try the same with All purp Flour also)
    (4) Chinese Style Vegetable Fried Rice & Chinese Style Egg Fried Rice
    (5) Peas Pulao
    (6) Vegetarian Noodles
    (7) Coconut Rice
    (8 ) Lemon Rice
    (9) Curd Rice
    (10) Vatha kulambhu and Spinach curry
    (11) Mango Rice
