Stuffed Aloo puri recipe – kids lunchbox recipes

        Its definitely a challenge to cook for the kids. Its difficult to please them. But its so satisfying if they eat something so well, especially if we have put a lot of efforts cooking something for them. I have a tough time cooking for my 7 year old. He is my best food critic, definitely a tough job to please him and a happy “me ” if he gives me a thumbs up!! He usually loves the cakes I make, especially if it is chocolate. I often wonder about what to send for his school lunch time. He has his lunch before going to school and I have to give a snack which is filling as well as delicious. Its usually sandwiches, pasta or chapatis filled with jam or nutella or cheese inside. 

        One day I had some leftover mashed potatoes and I always have some kneaded atta to make chapatis anytime. I decided to make aloo pooris with it for his lunchbox. It was all decided at the nick of time. They really turned out crispy and delicious. My kiddo loved it too. Usually kids will leave out the dish we give with the pooris or chapatis. So stuffing different vegetables in chapatis and pooris always works for me and my kid!!

  1. Just take care, you drain out the water completely when you remove them from the pressure cooker.Wipe them gently with a dry kitchen towel or tissue paper. The vessel you take to mash and mix should be dry. All the basic things!!
