    Kunal,

    Given the size of the containers, they are the JCOs' Mess photos.

    Right?

    Indian Army Cookhouse Menu or fancily written as 'Daily Fare' is always vague.

    It is

    Chawal
    Roti
    Sabzi

    When as a Company Commander I insisted that more details of what is the Dal or Sabzi, the answer of the Langer Commander was 'Kuch Pata nahin kia CQMH issue karega'.

    In a way he was right since the Menu was made in advance for the week and one did not know what would be issued!

    In the IA, we always dot our 'i's and cross out 't's, but we don't know what type of ink we are using - Quink or Camel!

    Those patilas are too small to feed 120 people of the company!

    Well not in my unit which I visited in March 2012.

    But we must be different because we are a PVC Battalion ! ;)

    And surprisingly, unlike the photo, the patilas were never in Stainless Stee.

    Though in the JCOs' Mess they were having been bought by the JCOs' through their Mess cuttings.

    Wouldn't it be easier and tastier on the field if lunch or dinner is just the following:

    > Stew with all vegies (+ chicken for the non-veg folks, on daal base for the veg folks) - High vitamin, minerals and protein
    > Chapati/Half pound bread/Rice - Carbohydrates
    > Slab of raisin and nut cake - High calorie
    > Alternatively Fruit or Fruit juice - To round off the whole nutrition group

    No need of Masalchis grounding away at spices, no complex cooking... Everything comes together in a single pot.

    Lust look at some pictures... Aren't they lip smacking?

    Another thing I figured out during high altitude trekking...

    After a long trek, there is nothing as enjoyable or rejuvenating as a mug of hot soup followed by a energy bar.

    Simple recipe:
    > Take 1 mug of boiling water
    > Crumble in 1 Maggi Chicken Cube
    > Pour in 2 sachets of tomato ketchup
    > Stir well and drink up

    Made me warm all over even with -15 wind chill and 2ft of snow!
