RECIPE : TO INCLUDE GREENS IN YOUR CHILD’S MEAL

If you have opened this post, that means, like me, you are also blessed with a fussy eater and like me, you have been trying to find ways to get greens into your child’s stomach.

There was a time when I had thought I will never fool my kid and feed them everything the way it’s supposed to be fed. 

Yeah… Stupid, right??

My bubble burst after endless crying and whining sessions and I tried to look for alternatives.. 

Today I am sharing how to incorporate greens in food and make it fun too. 

I normally take fenugreek leaves, spinach or green peas. 

First boil the chosen veggie for atleast 10 minutes, while boiling you can add a pinch of salt if you like.

Strain it, but retain the water. 

Now grind it into a fine paste using as much of the water retained as required.

The paste should not be very thick, it should flow easily. 

Now take some dough, make a well in the centre of it and pour the paste into it along with a teaspoon of oil or ghee.  

Knead the dough with the paste and add a little water, only if necessary.

You can now make different shapes of chapatis, or simply deep fry puris. 

I usually sprinkle a little bit of Chaat masala over it before serving as my daughter loves it. 

You can try the same recipe with carrots, beetroots and other different vegetables or even boiled daal and make a colourful meal for your child.
NOTE: If you are using fenugreek leaves, make sure you sprinkle salt over then and keep them aside for 15-20 minutes to remove the bitterness. After that just drain the excess water and boil.

Do let me know if this recipe got you a peaceful mealtime. 
HAPPY PARENTING!
