Oats Chilla

Oats Chilla  

Now a days things have changed. Earlier family members used to ask snacks like tikki, cutlets, spicy chhola bhatura etc. now they ask Mamma have you heard of healthy ingredients. They ask do you know Mamma what are oats, do you know you should be using more of chia seeds, you should use more fibrous content, more sprouts etc.

Yeah Mamma knows this, but making family eat that healthy stuff, Mamma only has to work hard.

Paneer Pocket

Schezwan Paneer Pockets  

"Oh no...Not again....mumma same paneer ka parantha....it's too boring" I recently heard these comments from my daughter. This made me think....food must be healthy, full of nutritious ingredients, full of taste then what is missing.

Now a days kids are fond of eating pizza pockets, cheese pockets and these are very much in. Maximums kids like these stuff which are not very healthy. What if we make similar things which are healthy like our paneer ka parantha. If we present this paneer ka parantha in a slightly different manner, it comes like schezwan paneer pockets. Mom what have you made...this is very different, yummy and tasting awesome...these were the comments when my daughter ate it .

Instead of giving it standard parantha look, i made it like a pocket. It can now accommodate more paneer which is better than the mozrilla cheese used in pizza having more fat content. Schezwan flavor gives them flavour of fast food centers. Way of holding it also makes it more user friendly. And now it is a Hit not only with kids but also with elders...
