Here are a few yummy 10-minute dinner ideas for days when you don’t feel like spending time in the kitchen, and yet want something delicious to eat. By Manas Sen Gupta
Thai Prawn Fried Rice
It is simple, full flavoured and easy to make. You don’t need a whole list of ingredients for this one. If you are a fan of Thai food, you probably will have the condiments in your pantry. What else does it require? Cooked and cold steam rice and prawns.
Spaghetti Aglio E Olio
This classic Italian dish is not only delicious, but it’s also very easy to whip. All you need are five ingredients: spaghetti, olive oil, garlic, chilli flakes and parmesan cheese.
Yes, an omelette is usually eaten for breakfast. But this healthy dish can also make for an excellent dinner when made with fillings. You can go for a quick one with cheddar cheese, chives and bacon or ham. Or a more fulfilling Mediterranean omelette. Take a look at three different ways to jazz up your omelette in this video.
Mexican Rice Salad
Throw in some colourful veggies of your choice in a bowl, add a handful of boiled red kidney beans with some leftover rice and you are almost done. Drizzle some dressing and your dinner is ready.
Beef Noodle Salad
Okay, this one may take 15 minutes to put together, but the final result will be worth those extra five minutes. The combo of beef and noodles is delicious and this dish is proof. Two important ingredients needed are rice vermicelli noodles and a rib-eye steak.
Chicken Satay Ramen Noodle Bowl
Ramen is comfort in a bowl. This recipe is even better because it’s a mix of Japanese and Thai flavours. Whip this up on a rainy day and enjoy. For extra protein, you can add a boiled egg.
Chicken Schnitzel with Slaw
Super quick, easy and spicy, this Chicken schnitzel dish will tingle your tastebuds. Serve it with a side of slaw loaded with yoghurt dressing to enhance the flavours.
Halloumi with Chilli
If you’ve had one of those crazy busy days and don’t have the time to make an elaborate dinner, Nigella Lawson has the perfect recipe for you. Chilli and Haloumi. What’s not to love?
