Sometimes the trick to making quick dishes is planning ahead. For eg: If you plan and prepare idli batter for a week and refrigerate, you can make idli, dosa, paniyaaram or uthappam withing 10-15 minutes. Similarly if you stock your pantry with side options like idli podi, curry leaf powder, pickles etc., you do not have to worry about the side dishes. Being a frequent non-veg eater, I always buy in bulk. I clean it during the week end, marinate it and put it in small containers or plastic bags. Throughout the week, I can enjoy fish fry, chicken fry etc. in a matter of 15 minutes.
