Its really very hard to make kids eat healthy foods like Dhals, Greens, Veggies, Rice varieties etc.., which we consider important in our daily routine. The first thing they say is "N0- I DON'T LIKE IT, MA" and the second thing they say is "I WANT PIZZA or I WANT BURGER". Hope all mommies experience the same thing. My kid is no exception from this. So i find ways to make my kid eat the regular food with some creative ideas. Here are two of those things i do for my kid regularly.
I am sending these recipes to Vanamala of My Kitchen World for her Kid's Food Event.

1. Stuffed Rotis


For Dough:
  • Wheat flour - 2 cups
  • Salt- as required
  • Water - for kneading
For Stuffing:
  • Carrots - 2
  • Radish - 1 medium size
  • Corriander leaves - few
  • Green Chilli - 1 0r 2 (If needed)

How to make it:

Knead the flour with salt and water until it forms a dough. Apply little oil over the dough and set aside covered for atleast 1 hour. For stuffing, Shread carrots, radish, green chillies and add chopped corriander leaves and a dash of salt. Make evenly sized balls out of the dough and roll it in to a flat and round shape. Spread the stuffing mix on one half of the rolled dough and fold the other half over it so it forms a semi-circular shape. Press the ends so it doesn't open while heating. On a hot tava, put the stuffed rotis and heat on both sides. Add a little oil or ghee if preffered while heating. Also, try stuffing with spinach, cheese, shredded cauliflower, brocolli etc.,
