Kids- Bread Pizza

Kids are very peculiar about what they are eating and it's become very difficult sometimes, to make them right food and vegetables. I have seen some kids eating all the vegetables and fruits without objection, and some of them choose the vegetables from their food and leave them in side of their plates and finish rest of the food.

Now, it's important for these kids to eat vegetables. So, I found a solution. It's important for them to eat veggies, but not important for them to know that they are eating veggies.

All of them like Pizza. In fact some of them are great fans of pizza. But, most of them take out the veggies from their slices and eat whatever is left in the pizza. So, I thought lets make their Pizza little interesting. Veggies in it (being mom satisfaction for me) and a pizza (love for them). They never come to know that they are eating veggies. I bet your little one will hug you and say " Mom, I love you. You are the  best".

Here, is one of the recipe, you can change veggies according to your wish and availability.

Ingredients for 1 Bread Pizza-
  1. Bread Slice - 1
  2. Salsa Sauce/Spinach Paste (boiled and grinded) - 2 tbsp
  3. Butter - 1 tbsp
  4. Potato - 1/4 cup (chopped)
  5. Carrot - 1 tbsp (grated or finely chopped)
  6. Cheese - 1/2 cup ( grated)
Directions - 
  • Preheat your oven at 450 degrees.
  • Spread a layer of butter on the bread.

  • Spread another layer of Salsa sauce/Spinach Paste ( I boil Spinach, grind it and keep it ready in refrigerator).
  • Add chopped potatoes and carrot.

  • Cover it properly by grated cheese. So, that none of the veggies are seen.

  • Make some funny shape on the top of cheese with carrot or tomato sauce or green sauce (anything u wish).
  • Put it in Oven and bake it for 5-7 minutes, till the cheese is melted and starts turning brown in edges. I cook little more, so that the cheese is little brown in color, so that veggies are properly hidden especially when I have carrots inside.

  • Pack it in your little 1's Lunch bag and saw everything finished when they are back home.
  • Good luck.

Cauliflower in Tomato Soup Gravy




Most of us, forget small packets of masala powder hiding between big containers. And then after sometime we do not even remember the existence of that masala powder. Same thing happened with me.

Few days back, when I was cleaning 1 of my Kitchen Cabinet (contains most stuffs which I do not use regularly), I found a packet of Hot Tomato Soup Powder. I happened to got it around 6 months ago. I was in no mood of making the soup, but I do not wanted to throw it away. So, I kept it back in drawer.

Today, when I was talking to my dearest friend "Anupama", she asked me the same question " how to use tomato Soup powder, if U do not want to make a soup. After giving some thought, I came to conclusion that the Chinese dishes like Cauliflower Manchurian, Vegetable  Manchurian ( these recipe will be coming soon) will come out good. But, again I was running out of cornflour, so I decided of making simple Cauliflower dish, which turned out to be so yummy, that I couldn't stop finishing it all by myself.

Here, is the recipe for this amazing dish -

 Ingredients-


  1. Cauliflower skillets - 2 Bowls ( cleaned, washed and drained)
  2. Onion - 1/2 thinly sliced (big)
  3. Garlic - 2 cloves (minced)
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Turmeric Powder - 1tsp
  6. Black Pepper Powder- 1tsp
  7. Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
  8. Cooking Oil - 1 tbsp
  9. Hot Tomato Soup Powder - 3 Tbsp

Directions-  

  • Mix Hot tomato Soup Powder with double amount of water.

  • Stir so that all lumps are dissolved.

  • Add salt according to your taste, with turmeric powder, black pepper powder and cumin powder.

  • Wash Cauliflower skillets and drain.
  • In a heated pan, add  cooking oil, garlic, when turns light brown, add onion and fry for 2-3 minutes on high flame.

  • On high flame and add the Cauliflower and fry for 2-3 minutes.

     
  • Add 1/2 cup of water more, and cover it, let it get cooked for another 15 minutes.
  • Check cauliflower by cutting it through spoon.
  • All the water should get dried up by this time, and if it's not open the lid of pan, and dry it with stirring occasionally on high flame.

 NOTE-  To make it more nutritious, add chopped spinach to Garnish. It will look beautiful and will be healthy too.
