'It's the most comforting food of all': Sapana shares three Indian-inspired dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Sapana Behl takes us through her favourite meals.

EACH WEEK, WE ask a home cook about their favourite dishes to whip up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From simple meals that you don’t need a recipe for, to dishes that take a little more time but are worth the wait.

My favourite breakfast ever is a pillowy soft, mildly spicy and tasty instant semolina crepe, also known as uttapam, topped with tomatoes, coriander, and green chilies. I could eat this every day without any complaints. It’s super easy to make and filling as well.

Lunch: Vegan tofu tikka wraps

This is one of my favorite lunches as it is healthy and very addictive. We love tofu in our house, so I try to find ways to incorporate it into our diet. Tofu tikka wraps are a simple yet inviting meal I love to make on weekends for my family, and they totally enjoy every single bite. This is the recipe I use.

Dinner: Tadka dahl with rice

For me and my family, lentils and rice are the most comforting foods of all. This is one simple dish that has protein and carbs, plus it tastes absolutely amazing too. When making a dahl, I recommend adjusting the consistency of the dahl as per your desire using more or less water. Dahl tastes best when cooked in ghee, but you can make it in oil as well to make it vegan-friendly.
