  1. I’m currently in this phase of packing tiffin for my little girl. She’s just in Nursery but I make sure to cook interesting recipes for her. I’m more of a breakfast person so we don’t usually have roti sabzi in the morning it is always different things that make the first meal interesting. Thank you for this post, might help me ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This post takes me down memory lane when I had to pack tiffin for my kids. You’ve helped many a mom with this post.

  3. This is helpful now that school has started. I also prepare the sabji bhuna or sauce bases the night before and add the rest of the ingredients in the morning. I am glad kids still take healthy, home cooked meals to school.
