Handy, and generally quick, One dish meals ensure that you never skip a meal! Basically, they are dishes that can make a meal by themselves. They are self-contained in terms of nutrition, flavour and texture, and you do not need to prepare any accompaniments for them.

One-dish meals can be made of rice , pasta or noodles , or they can be a sumptuous baked dish, paratha or burger. Try out recipes like Spicy Potato Roti Roll , Burmese Khowsuey and Four Cheese Pizza , to experience the convenience of one-dish meals. They are ideal for dinner, on a busy day that leaves you with just enough time to prepare one dish!

The Burrito Bowl sounds elaborate, but the fact is that it is not too time-consuming. Moreover, it is a satiating one-dish meal, which is completely worth the effort. Here, rice is boosted with colourful veggies, ketchup and appropriate seasonings; layered with refried beans, sour cream and uncooked salsa; and finally garnished with cheese and other ingredients; before topping with crushed nacho chips, to make a totally irresistible one dish meal . Refried beans is a staple accompaniment in Mexican cuisine and is readily available at stores, but making it fresh at home with tomatoes, spring onions and cooked rajma, gives an awesome flavour that beats any packaged option! Assemble each serving of the Burrito Bowl separately so that everybody gets an equal share of the goodies, and enjoy it immediately upon preparation.

Deep-fried potato fingers, sautéed with crunchy veggies and tangy sauces makes a yummy filling for hot dog rolls. A dash of mayonnaise adds to the zesty flavour of the filling and makes the sandwich a bit creamy too, balancing the texture very well. Loaded with potatoes and veggies, this multi-flavoured Schezuan Fries Hot Dog Sandwich is filling enough to have as a meal. A bowl of your favourite soup will make a fitting accompaniment to this filling sandwich.

Let’s take the best of all our favourite recipes like katti rolls, burgers and frankies, and make our own delightful creation now! Everything about this recipe is perfect, right from the crispness and perky flavour of the potato rolls, to the soft and pliable rotis. A combination of refined and whole wheat flours are used to give the rotis their special texture, while a mix of mashed potatoes, green peas and cheese together with a blend of spices gives the potato rolls their dashing flavour. Sprinkling some tangy masala water on the rotis before rolling them improves the flavour and also retains their moistness, while an onion masala mixture adds to the crunch. Enjoy the Spicy Potato and Roti Roll fresh, to relish the best texture and check out for more Wraps / Rolls recipes that you can snack on or enjoy as a One Meal Dinner .

It would be quite fair to call this a global favourite, because the Vegetable Club Sandwich is one snack you can rely on to satiate your hunger anywhere in the world. Found on most restaurant menus, this satiating multi-decker sandwich may be found in many variants depending on the region and the chef’s imagination! This recipe is an interesting and slightly Indianised version in which one of the layers comprises a flavourful tomato omelet, perked up with green chillies and spice powders. Creamy and tangy coleslaw forms another layer, while the rest of the sandwich is comprised of crunchy and juicy veggies and greens. A dash of peppy chutneys like green chutney and garlic chutney heightens the desi feel of this Vegetable Club Sandwich. Feel free to experiment a bit with this sandwich, adding or removing ingredients as per your taste – although we strongly recommend giving this full-fledged version a try, because you are sure to be bowled over by it! Accompany this sandwich with a bowl of hot soup or a cool beverage to make an excellent and satiating meal.

This one-dish meal is sure to strike every single of your taste buds with its vibrant flavour! The Burmese Khowsuey features layers of noodles, a vegetable curry made with coconut milk and an elaborate masala of spices, coconut and cashew nuts, and an elaborate garnish of fried onions, garlic, vaal dal and spring onions. This gives the dish a unique texture and a really unforgettable flavour. Although this dish obviously involves too much effort, right from preparing the noodles and the curry to the garnishes, it is completely, absolutely worth it!

A soft and sumptuous paratha shaped like a lifafa or envelope to hold the tangy and peppy paneer stuffing. Making the flour dough with milk and ghee imparts a crusty and soft texture to the envelope, while the addition of mint, coriander and lemon juice gives the stuffing a zesty feel. Serve the Lifafa Paneer Paratha immediately on preparation with your favourite chutney, sauce, subzi or simply curd.

You would have tasted pasta in white sauces, red sauces and even green sauces, but have you ever tried one in an enticing pink sauce? Herbed Fusilli in Pink Sauce is a memorable treat, which is also easy to prepare. You will be surprised to know that the pink sauce gets its colour not from beetroot or any pink ingredient, but by the interplay of the many other coloured ingredients used in its preparation.

Korma gravies are very popular with most people, thanks to their intense flavour and rich aroma. While you might have seen korma gravies combined with a range of veggies, paneer, etc., here we present an innovative, layered biryani made with korma gravy and rice that has been flavoured aesthetically with whole spices and saffron. So delicious, the Korma Biryani does not even call for a special side-dish, and tastes exciting with just a cup of curds or Raitas / Kachumber .

This three-in-one treat is a typical Rajasthani treat. The Rajasthanis specialise in serving sweet and savoury dishes in combinations that steal the heart and delight the taste buds. A platter of semi-sweet Churma, spicy Dal and deep-fried Baati, is one such traditional combination. Fresh baatis drowned in piping hot dal is a perfect accompaniment for churma. If you have ever been to Rajasthan in the winter months, you will know that this combo is a wonderful way to warm yourself up on a cold day!

This homemade Four Cheese Pizza poses stiff competition to popular store-bought variants like ‘cheese burst’ and ‘cheese overload’. This pizza is made from the ground up – we are going to make everything from the dough to the base and the toppings ourselves – and that is what gives it a totally fabulous texture and flavour. Herby seasonings add a lot of punch to this cheesy pizza, which is topped with four delectable varieties of cheese and tomatoes. An abundance of cheese also means that this pizza must be enjoyed as soon as it is baked, before the cheese gets chewy, so be ready with your fork and knife! To enhance your pizza meal pair it with a glass of your favourite beverage.
