In the bento: The fruit section contains apple plum slices, orange slices, strawberry slices and lots of pieces of baby corn including some on a leaf pick. The other side has a fake-tsukune patty with a circle of bread behind, steamed broccoli, carrot flowers, cheese flowers, a purple yam flower and hiding between the broccoli and carrots is a Mac and Cheese ball.
The Tsukune patty is decorated with mayo in a traditional henna flower pattern. Sesame seeds decorate the carrot and purple yam flowers and to make my pink-obsessed girl happy there is a pink flower divider. Not shown are a soy sauce bottle and a ketchup container.
Below was my lunch bento yesterday. I promised myself Indian food after going to a Bollywood dance class the night before. I love Indian food, the spicier the better! Since I knew that this feast wasn't going to be shared with A-chan I spiked up the heat to a level 20. So yummy :)
In my bento: Naan (frozen, from Trader Joe's), a miniature orange pepper with raita inside, persian cucumber spears, chana masala in the blue cup, veggie biryani and tofu musallam.
I adapted the tofu musallam from a recipe for Murgh Musallam which is 'Whole chicken baked in Aluminum Foil' from a cookbook by Madhur Jaffrey.
