Oats Daddojanam in a healthy thali

After all my heavy meal thalis Now I wanted to show my favorite and simple, healthy thali. I usually like to  have this type of food for my lunch. Which is less fat and low corbohyderats. My type of meal for the day, I like to take heavy breakfast like idli with sambar(my all time fav.), dosa with any vegetable chutney, upma with veges or any sandwich with raw vegetables or egg. so that we intake corbohyderats in first meal (it is right or wrong I don't know but I am stick to this menu from long time). So for lunch roti(phulka) dal and subji with butter milk or some times I mix curd with oats or wheat rava (daliya). I don't like to sleep in the afternoons, I keep my self bussy with doing some work like making masala powder or ginger garlic paste. I do my kitchen shoping twice a week (i make sure that I will do in powder cut times he he). If I am planing to bake some thing that also I do in the afternoon time, and also grinding idli dosa batter. So I am always busy you know:)
