I had lunch today all alone. It’s CoCo day in school for Drama Queen and Cass; Alycia only got back at 4pm and the mil had just flown off to Hawaii. I hadn’t planned what to eat for lunch and the thought of take out food from the regular stalls did not appeal to me at all.
After getting some groceries from 99 Speedmart, I walked across to the roadside Indian stall to see what they have to offer. I always notice many patrons tucking into the food, under the hot sun, shielded only by a piece of plastic cover above. Such an unassuming stall yet could attract such a crowd. The food must be good and cheap.
I took a piece of mackerel fish curry and a piece of chicken curry. That’s enough for me for I have a very small tummy with modest appetite. Back home, I sliced up a cool kyuri and ate the curry that I bought with it together with some jackfruit.
My RM7 lunch – the fish and chicken curry cost RM4, cool kyuri RM1 and jackfruit is about RM2. Light and easy. Low in carbs and high in protein. Definitely my kind of lunch.
Jackfruit, known as the jack of all fruits is a rich source of vitamin, minerals, phytonutrients, carbohydrate, electrolytes, fiber, fat and protein. This fruit has no cholesterol or saturated fats.
