Lockdown Recipes/ Recipes With Limited Ingredients

Lockdown recipes or recipes with limited resources. Without lockdown it may be difficult to prevent infections from spreading. So please stay home stay safe šŸ™

During lockdown we have to cook with whatever we have in our pantry. We people of Uttar Pradesh, India are lucky enough that we are getting all the vegetables at our doorstep. Thanks to our Chief Minister for the proper arrangement. But if you don’t have fresh vegetables then you can use different types of pulses or dal, chana or chickpeas and rajma, potatoes, tomatoes, onion or frozen corn, green peas, eggs etc. You can make paneer or cottage cheese if you have milk. Get the recipe to make paneer or cottage cheese here.

Cook something delicious for your family and enjoy the time with them. These days will pass and everything will be fine again. Just be careful and take care of yourself. Here are some recipes with pulses, rice and potatoes for your convenience. Check whatever you have in your pantry.
