Raj, Not sure if these were mentioned by try cutting up all needed veggies over the weekend. Make packages according to the dish. For example one plastic bag of veggies for sambar, another with all veggies for avial and so on. When I was going thru this stage, I did that. Plus I was working full time for this was a great time saver. Also, place ur baby in a play pen but make sure she can see you...throw some toys in there as well. Good luck - but don't worry - this stage too shall pass and then you'll end up like me wondering where all those years went.
