The BEST thing about making a really good dinner…….is having left overs to use for your lunch the next day!!
( See yesterday’s post if you are just joining us)
I am one of those people who, due to my schooling and my own research, can NOT knowingly eat microwaved food! There, I said it. But obviously you will need to be the judge of that for yourself.
So I am always looking for something interesting to take to work for lunch that doesn’t need heating. And unfortunately left over dinner items usually fall into that category.
The Chef suggested that I mix a bit of the rice with the butter chicken and put it in a wrap!
Well, “why not?” I thought.
So while the chicken and rice were still warm I wrapped it up in a big tortilla. If you do it while it is warm it is easier to work with and makes the tortilla more pliable.
Then put it in the fridge over night and take it with you in the morning. It will firm up nicely in the fridge and that way won’t squish out when you eat it.
But when you get where you are going, don’t put it back in the fridge. Keep it out so that it comes up to room temperature by lunch time.
This will make it much more pleasant, and you are perfectly safe to do that if it is just a few hours.
In fact, that was always one of the original uses of curry powders, to preserve things in places without refrigeration!
Made a yummy yummy lunch!
