6 School Lunch Ideas From Around the World

India inspired lunch


This recipe for chana masala from Yummily Yours is so simple, you could even make it in the morning before school. All you need is 30 minutes — half of which is cooking time — and soon you’ll have a lunchbox meal that’s the envy of the whole class. Plus, it’s mild enough to entice even the more spice-averse.

You’ll need a can of chickpeas along with cinnamon, cumin, paprika and garam masala (all can be found at your local grocery). Mix the chickpeas and spices with sautéed onions, ginger-garlic paste, chopped onions and chopped tomatoes. Add some rice and naan or a spoonful of yogurt.
