LUNCH BOX 4****

Two of my son's favorite dishes ...
..

On the right side you can see what we call as BHAKRI and on the left is POTATO PHODI....
BHAKRI CAN BE MADE WITH ANY TYPE OF FLOUR BY ADDING ONION, COCONUT ,AND CHILLIES... For the recipe you can click here and do a search on my other  blog to get rest of the bhakri recipes..


Potato phodi is something that my son loves to have with variety of things as a side dish and the most favorite is varan or dal rice , you can have them just on their own , or sandwiched between two slices of bread , or make thin strips out of them and roll them in a roti  the variations are endless , only one has to use ones imagination at the right time....
I normally make these for his birthday or as a special treat for him ....
The day I made this for his lunch box,  I did not tell him what was in the lunch box just packed it saying I had given him Upma (he does not like to have upma cold -- but has to as there is no microwave available in the college) .And my baby made a face while keeping it in the bag...(shhhh... doesn't like me to call him my baby you know.......).



I could imagine his expression when he opened the box and had it for lunch.Such bliss!!!!! Knowing that what you have made will be relished and eaten with a contented heart...

RECIPE OF POTATO PHODI.....

Peel and slice potatoes into thick pieces , If you take two medium size potatoes add 1 tsp chilli powder , 1/2 tsp haldi powder, 1/2 tsp dhania-jeera powder ,salt...smear it with these spices and then dip them in coarsely ground rice flour powder and shallow fry in oil on a griddle....you can cover them when cooking on the griddle remove when ready and crispy on both the sides... 

you can find the recipe of BRINJAL PHODI which I made earlier here

I am sending this recipe to this event here  An event for LUNCH BOXES....
