Share :

The world moves at a dizzying pace. With the frantic rhythm of modern life, it can be a challenge to juggle work, family, and everyday tasks while still maintaining a healthier diet. In such a scenario, wouldn’t you appreciate having balanced meal options that are not only easy to prepare and pack but also bursting with flavours? 

Fun Fact:

  • The word "tiffin" is derived from the obsolete English slang word "tiffing" which meant to take a little drink or snack.
  • Tiffin carriers or dabba were first used in India during the late 19th century by British settlers who wanted a way to carry freshly cooked food from home.
  • Paneer, a fresh cheese widely used in Indian cuisine, gets its name from the Portuguese word "paneer" which means bread.
  • In East India, a unique tiffin tradition involves cooking rice inside a hollow bamboo stem over an open fire.
  • The Guinness World Record for the largest samosa was set in 2022 - it weighed over 300 pounds!

Welcome to the world of balanced tiffin recipes! These recipes are designed with the Indian palate in mind, ensuring a seamless blend of nutrition and taste. And guess what? They are equally loved by people of all ages – from school-going children to working adults. Let’s delve into the details and find out more about these recipes.

1. Kids’ Lunch Box Recipes

When it comes to packing lunch boxes for kids, the mantra is simple – it has to be nutritious, taste good, and look appealing. It can be a conundrum to strike a balance between these three elements. But worry not! There are plenty of creative ideas that cater to your child’s preferences. A lunch box loaded with colourful fruits, crunchy vegetables, and protein-packed staples like dal or chole can work wonders in ensuring your little one gets a balanced diet. Then adding a fun twist with Nutralite’s range of mayo. Available in flavours like Plain Veg, Tandoori, and Cheesy Garlic, they add an exciting layer of taste without compromising on nutrition. Plus, they are fortified with vitamins A, D2, and E. Talk about a win-win situation! They can be both healthier and tasty at the same time.

2. Matar Paneer Pulao Recipe

Matar Paneer Pulao is another lunch box favourite in many Indian households. This aromatic dish is prepared with nutritious ingredients like peas (matar), cottage cheese (paneer), and rice along with flavourful spices. The addition of cashews adds a crunchy texture that your kid is sure to enjoy. You can increase the nutritional quotient of this dish by using Nutralite’s DoodhShakti Butter Spread. Along with adding a creamy richness, it also supports immunity by improving gut health, thanks to the active probiotics added to it.

3. Onion Rice Recipe

For those who prefer their lunch box to be a bit more simple and straightforward, onion rice or onion pulao is a great option. This recipe is not only quick to prepare – especially when you have leftover rice – but also packed with flavours from onions and spices. You can make this meal more wholesome by using Nutralite’s Table Spread or Yummy Table Spread which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D2, and E. This is a much tastier and healthier option.

4. Instant Pulao Recipe

The beauty of instant pulao lies in its simplicity. This dish can be prepared within minutes using leftover rice and makes for a flavourful lunch box option or breakfast. The best part? It’s versatility. You can add pretty much any vegetables you have on hand – peas, carrots, beans, capsicum, the list goes on. Don’t forget to add a dollop of Nutralite’s Table Spread for that extra dollop of health and taste!

5. Dessert Time

No meal is complete without a sweet ending. And what better way to round off your lunch than with a sandwich made with Nutralite’s Choco Spread? With real hazelnuts and two exciting variants – Calcium enriched and Crunchy, it offers a healthier alternative to regular chocolate spreads.
