Egg Tomato Pulao

Easy meals are always a blessing when you are engaged with so many stuffs in the morning. Preparing foods for a lunch box is definitely a difficult task for a mom especially if the kids are picky eaters. Thank god my kids arent that much picky eaters and now they are grown up. Though i never packed their lunch box for them, i always want to feed them with healthy stuffs in their meal. However i can imagine the hassles every mom go through to cook healthy foods for their kids especially to pack in their lunch box. Am running a month of blogging marathon since three weeks and we are nearing the end of this Mega marathon successfully. Am happy that i could finish this Megamarathon without any hassles though i sticked with easy themes for all these four weeks. Thanks to my followers and my fellow marathoners who are always here for me to give some positive vibes. They never failed to stop motivating me, this gives me more enthu.

The tomato rice sounds very flavourful and adding egg to it would make it a complete meal . I know even I have no lunch boxes to pack but we definitely want our kids to eat hearty and healthy meal before they are off or when they get back .

Egg would make the entire pulav more filling and healthy. Lovely spread in the thali and I am eyeing those bhajis.
