    wheat flakes, corn flakes both are unsweetened, oats bites- little sweet, chat chutneys both, lime juice, chat masala, jeera pwd, Apple, pomegranate kernels.. Just I loved it. If we use milk , it will become soggy after some time... But in this till the last spoon I enjoyed the chrunchiness

    @karanu we moms become experts at that. i even sneaked papaya into cakes because my son never would eat a papaya.the smell of papaya is too strong but it gets camouflaged in a cake/muffin.

    radish minced and added to dal. same with lauki,ash gourd and many more. not that he would not eat it. it depends on his mood. so this way it goes in.

    also all vegetables can be added to chappathi dough. i remember days when i had left over greens that would be made into chappathis and given by 6.oo to both my mil and kids. they would eat it heartily.

    here comes the best sneak. vepamboo/neem flowers, we don't take it to heat as our kuladeivam is a durga amsa. so it goes into coconut thogayal or coriander coconut chutney. sssshhhhhh till day they have never known.

    dates into ladoos, muffins, and cakes. my dd does not like dates.

    And all those who think the little millets in idli/dosa is not so great, you are wrong. you have to find the right proportion and the grinding. no mixie. grind the urad batter. and then just run the millets along with the batter for another 10 minutes. to get a coarse batter. otherwise grind the millets/little millets be it kudiravali, thinai, varagu too..and then add it to the urad batter just like regular idli/dosa batter.

    the ratio can be 3 :3/4 cups of urad +1tbslp of methi. or just make it 4:1 too. it comes out great. but you want more softer idlis or you feel the ratio is giving a harder one, reduce it to 3:1.
