Hi itohan! U could give her poha, upma , vermicelli , stuffed, paratha, idli dosa all loaded with vegetables for the breakfast. A cut fruit in the snack, roti with sabji and dal or non veg, curd in the lunch, a fruit shake in the evening, roti, sabji , daal, or egg curry in the dinner.

itohan as you said you need a weekly food chart for 1 year 3 month old baby but it won't be right to make a food chart for a baby because at this time the needs of the baby are are basically determined on the food digestion and taste of the baby .....with the the correct specification of the health stats.. we can only generalize a food chart for you that is you can add 5 meal chart for the baby. In the breakfast you may include milk or some health shakes... at 11 O'Clock around you can add give the baby a fruit like banana or apple which is easy to eat and digest also then at around 1 o'clock you may give some porridge Khichdi Dal soups and Lassi the cheese type variant as lunch.. after a short nap when he wakes up you may add to his diet , a glass of milk , milk shake, finger food like cheese patties cheese roll poha idli or a sandwich with brown portion of the brread to be cut-off otherwise it will not be swollen easily by the baby ....at night which must be given by 8 o'clock may include Khichdi , easy to digest idli Upma etc.... But overall u can only wean a baby to eat.. don't force it... Breast milk if possible.. may please be given side by side u can also read these blogs.. https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/homemade-baby-food-recipes-for-6-12-months/565, https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/healthy-baby-food-recipe-ideas-for-8-12-months-infants/670, https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/4-food-optionsrecipes-for-your-6-months-baby/2420, https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/video-2-lunch-ideas-for-your-1-3-year-old-child/4318

Helo @ Itohan try to frame your own food chart for your baby based on your baby's taste or interest for particular food but make sure that you include all the veggies, fruits etc in their food. For example if you don't introduce bitterguard for your baby now they will have a dislike when they become older that it is bitter in taste. I asked you yourself to frame food chart because some food may cause food allergies for some babies for some it won't. I can help you in giving suggestions of what to include. You can include veggie soups, finger foods, lentils, fresh juices, tender coconut. One more thing is everyday you dont have to make them separate foods even you can give them what your whole family have also like dosa, idly, pongal, kichadi, chapati, rice etc... once in a while you can give them separate foods by making it colourful to attract them like beetroot dosa, carrot dosa or beetroot poori, palak poori just grind them and add to the batter to give a good colour so that they will be interested towards food. you can give them homemade cookies. offer them snacks like patties rather than getting from markets which contains lot of preservatives . And even if you can do this for foods what they dislike. Never force feed your baby. If possible try not to feed your baby let baby itself eat what they want. Make them to sit in a chair and offer them when the entire family have their food they will eat their food by watching them as how to eat. You can continue your breastfeeding journey also till or more than 2years nothing wrong in it. Happy parenting.
