    "Whats in the tiffin today mamma?"
    This is exactly what my son asks everyday immediately after he finishes brushing his teeth early in the morning.
    Infact hes quite a foodie though he doesnt look like one.Many people dont believe me when i say this because he is still in kindergarten.
    In the evenings he will ask me "what are you making at 5(pm) mamma ??" hihihi
    So i have to be ready with an answer always.
    But its the tiffin thing that matters most after all he has to share it with his friends.I try everything from bread pakoras,sweet almond parathas cut like cookies,idli with chutney,french toast etc.I want to know what other ILites make for the tiffin?
    In the evenings in i make peanut chikki,roasted nuts, banana-jaggery pancakes etc.I usually make things which can be done in 10-15mins..i know i can be very lazy :)
    I am just sharing a pic of wholemeal bread pakora (layered with green chutney and sauce) here.

    So ILites do tell me what you make for your child, if possible do share the recipes and pics too :)

    Recipe for the bread pakora
    Bread - 3slices
    Besan( gram flour) -4tbsp
    Ajwain- 1 pinch (add this only if you want to)
    Asfoetida (hing powder) - 1 pinch
    Turmeric powder- 1pinch
    Chilli powder-1 tsp
    Green chutney(it can be corinader chutney or pudhina chutney, corinader or pudhina leaves grinded with some onions,ginger,green chillies and salt)
    Tomato sauce
    Salt - to taste


    Method:
    Mix besan,turmeric,red chilli powder,ajwain,asfoetida(hing) powder and salt in bowl with little water.The batter should be little thick.
    Now take 3 slices of bread.On one of them spread green chutney and on another put sauce and put all the 3 slices together and dip it in the batter and fry in hot oil.
    I Cut it in 2 halves because my son loves to see the tricolor :)

    :thankyou2:eek:
