Fast moving life makes it difficult to sit down and eat sumptuous meals. When you are running from one room to another and kids are getting ready to go to tuition classes, serving them with nutritious food is a real challenge.

So to make things simpler, here is an option "Chhotti bhookh ke liye, chhottey rolls". Here I made it from Moong Daal having all proteins, stuffed it with cheese and veggies. Further to enhance taste, I added green chutney. Now you place it on your dining table and family members can't resist picking and eating it while chatting, talking, watching TV or even reading. So pamper your family members with food rich in taste and rich in values.
