Dinner--Eating rotis made from wheat every night gets boring after a while. So make Bajra rotis instead. You can eat them with a curry or subzi. Here's the recipe to make bajra rotis.
Snacks--Hunger at odd times can be unnerving.

That is when you should just drink some soup. Here's an interesting recipe by Chef Ranveer Brar--Curried apple pumpkin soup.
