3 Best Recipes for Kids: Easy to Make

Recipes for kids – One of the main issues faced by most parents is how to ensure that their child is getting proper nutrition from the food he eats. Especially at the toddler stage, kids often become fussy eaters, causing a lot of stress to parents. It’s important to understand that children love the visual impact of food, alongside its taste. So even if you are serving something which is packed with nutrition, first make sure it looks pretty.

Beetroot Poori (Also called Red Poori)

Who doesn’t like colour on their plate? This is a great way to make your child eat beetroot with minimum fuss.

250gms beetroot



Method To Make Recipes for Kids:

Peel the beetroot and pressure it. Let it cool and blend it in the mixer till it’s a fine puree. Take the flour and instead of water add the beetroot puree and salt and knead it. Beetroot makes the dough sticky so you can add a teaspoon of oil to the dough. You can also add water till it becomes soft. Take a deep frying pan and add oil. Roll out the pooris in circular shapes. I often use large sized cookie cutters to give the pooris exciting shapes! These can be served with chickpeas (chanas) or potato curry.
