What I ate today for lunch

Eating healthy or trying to most of the time. As summer's set in the craving for lighter and more juicier veggies have set in.
Not very fond of eating too much rice as it's too heavy these days, so I go for just a little over a spoon of it.
As you can see there are 5 varieties of vegetables for lunch today.
Some bitter gourd, a drumstick dish(love drumsticks) and they are really good for you.
Pumpkin stir fried- good for summers as the vegetable has a lot of water.
Little pieces of sweet pumpkin in a sweet and tangy yoghurt sauce with a dash of coconut oil, mustard and some curry leaves. I love this for summer! I had second helpings.
And finally, the heaviest of the lot, green banana kootu which was a tad spicy.
We also drink a lot of lightly spiced buttermilk after our meal.
It's been very hot this week. I don't know what's going to happen as it's just the beginning of summer and I am melting!

  5. Wow you have such variety in your meal. I will usually choose one or two things to eat, not lots of different things on one plate. What a fun idea!
