Quick Veg Rice

It has been some time we posted on the blog. Adjusting to the new routine lol!!!
Schools have reopened and mommies and kiddies are back on track. Mommies are worried about how to fill the lunch boxes with tasty food that their kids will love without compromising on the nutrient content. Kiddies may not always like to take rice for lunch. But we Mommies can’t agree to that. Our last post was a healthy snack box recipe. As we promised we will be posting a series of snack box and lunch box recipes that moms could effortlessly make and pack for their little ones.  Here is a quick veg rice lunch box recipe.
