This is another quick recipe in my KID FRIENDLY RECIPES series...
I am going to share with you some recipes which I and my extended family members have been cooking for their families.
Vacations are taxing for moms with the kids being hungry perpetually all the time and one has to come up with something new all the time, with a little pre-prep you too can make some awesome dishes or snacks for your little ones which will be nutritious and healthy.
You don’t have to worry that they are having those unnecessary packets of chips or biscuits which not only harm one’s body but also put in bad habits of eating junk in your kids lives.
TIP: ALWAYS KEEP A COUPLE OF MORE POTATOES BOILED IN YOUR FRIDGE THIS WILL HELP YOU MAKE MANY DISHES THAT ARE FILLING AND NUTRITIOUS FOR KIDS.. POTATOES ARE GOOD CARBS AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT DEEP-FRIED.
You can read here for knowing the nutritional benefits of a potato
HERE IS A WONDERFUL RECIPE which can be made with vegetables at hand.
I won’t be writing the proportions in this recipe as its totally optional you can put in as much and as little as it suits your taste.
Finely chop boiled potatoes and keep aside.
Take a non-stick or thick bottom pan, add a little oil, add finely chopped onions, and stir till it’s soft and translucent.
Add finely chopped chilies and finely grated ginger to this, stir again
Add in vegetables of choice which are easy to cook and can also be eaten raw for a quick meal.
My vegetables of choice are finely grated carrots, capsicum, cabbage and if possible boiled peas (you can do this in advance with the potatoes) .
At this stage it’s up to you if you want it to be spicy by adding garam masala powder or a little pepper powder (remember we have added green chilies)
Add salt a little sugar and finely chopped coriander
Tip: I sometimes add a little bit of soya sauce and tomato ketchup for a little twist in taste.
Take 2 toasted slices of bread and spread the above mixture on it or you can put these in a sandwich toaster for yummy grilled toast vegetable sandwich.
To increase the nutrition slide a half fried or fully fried egg on top of this mixture.
