Vegetable brown rice patty – easy wholemeal ideas

My son often has stayback after school on certain days. So I need to pack an extra tiffin box on such days. He hardly gets 15 minutes for eating before the class begins. He eats very slowly and so I usually pack something which can be easily and quickly eaten. Generally I make stuffed parathas and roll it up for him. So for one of these stayback days, I made some wholemeal cutlets. This recipe involves rice and vegetables and made a quick and proper lunch for my son.

 

Corn dhokla recipe – easy snacks recipes

I had made this some ages ago for an evening snack and we had gorged on it and loved it.I buy corn many times as my kiddo likes it. But I often forget about it leaving it in the refigerator perhaps for a fortnight. It happened this time until I finally thought of making bhutte ka kees. But thinking of the meagre amount it will be after all the process, I dropped the plan and thought of making this dhoklas. I referred to a number of recipes in the net. Nothing special about the recipe, its almost same as we…

 

Instant rice flour vadais – Indian deep fried snacks

I made them during the tamil new year this year.I usually dont cook a elaborate meal nowdays. But the festivals are something special and serves as an perfect excuse to serve a grand meal. However due to the lack of time in my everyday schedule, I was not prepared to cook anything elaborate. So I had not soaked lentils to make the authentic medhu vadai. But I worked really fast that day and found ample time to make some payasam ( recipe of which I will be posting later) and instant vadais. I found the recipe for the vadaishere. It…

Toblerone candy shortbread recipes – easy kids recipes

The one week school holidays are almost coming to an end now. This week was the busiest and is still going to be more busy for the next few days. But I also enjoyed the time with my kids and tried spending the maximum time with them keeping them occupied with some activity or the other. And as usual, I tried to cook their favourite dishes too. I had seen this recipe in several blogs a couple of years ago. I had loved it and had wanted to try. But I could never do it as I buy chocolate rarely…

 

Quick pizza buns – easy kids snack recipes

This is another recipe I made for the kids during the chinese new year holidays. They enjoyed this for breakfast. My son loves pizza , so this quick , instant and easy to make recipe always comes in handy for me when the kids are hungry. I have made this couple of times with burger buns, hot dog buns or even butter rolls. When I made this time with hot dog buns, my little one called them pizza boats which sounded quite apt due to its shape!! Now when the first term break is approaching again, I do look forward…

 

Cheesy broccoli bites /balls – Kids snack recipes

There was a time when I used to cook a lot reffering to cookbooks. But then recently, I never found time. I used to bring home a lot of cookcooks especially baking books from the library. I would even copy down a few recipes and never saw it again. I totally stopped bringing books and I stopped buying them too. But recently when we went to a nearby mall, there was a old books sale going on. It was quite surprising to see a lot of cookbooks by Indian authors. I found a book by Nita mehta which contained snack…
