LUNCH – Palak Chapati – are made by many moms to sneak in nutrition and are a popular Indian recipe for toddlers and kids. Your little one will enjoy eating colorful chapati.My daughter says them green chapati 🙂 and she loves it.Regular use of spinach helps us to prevent iron deficiency and boosts our immunity.
- Take wheat flour, salt, spinach puree and oil in a bowl and mix well.
- Knead together to make a dough.i dint use extra water to knead as spinach puree was sufficient to make a soft dough.
- Now apply oil over the dough and let it rest for atleast 15 mins.
- Divide the dough into equal portions and roll it thinly.Also cut into desired shapes to make it more attractive.
- Cook it on both sides on a hot tawa and spread some ghee on top.
Lunch – Jeera Aloo Subji is one of those dishes you prepare, when you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen and still want to eat something delicious.Since i had boiled potato previous night i made this subji in 5 minutes.
How to Prepare
- Cut 1 medium sized boiled aloo/potato into cubes.
- Heat oil in a kadai ,add jeera let it splutter then add hing, turmeric powder, redchilli powder, amchur powder , garam masala powder, salt and quickly add boiled potatoes and stir carefully till the masala covers all the potato cubes well.
