Food Fun- DINO puris for kids- Kids Lunchbox
Hello Dearies!!!! Times flies at the light speed. Summer just started and by the time we realize, schools will be opening and we will be back to the same questions. Kids lunchbox ideas. 

I keep thinking of making a fixed weekly menu, but by the end of first two weeks of school, I get lost and am back to scratching my brains every morning.

I have tons of fun cookie cutters. I am a pack rat and I heart all things cute.Most of my visits to Home Goods come back with cookie cutters, vases, pitchers, anything under $5. 

I found these Dino Shapes in one such trip to the store. They were too big for cookies, so were stashed away at the back. Every time, I chanced upon them, I thought next time I will use it for something.

My kids are not in the age where they will enjoy food in fun shapes, they are entering teens and at this point any food that resembles junk is welcome by them. But this is  a cool way of making your kids eat what you want them to eat without any fuss or excuses.

Pesarattu/Moong Dal Dosa.

Pesarattu Moong Dal Dosa.

Hello Sweeties!!! Summer is here in full swing and we are looking to spend most of our daytime out of homes every weekend. More time out of home and less timespend cooking inside, which also means the lunch or brunch has to be quick and nutritious and yet healthy.

We are not a cereal and milk breakfast family. We need our dose of desi/Indian breakfast food. Idli- Dosa of different types, poha or such foods make us happy.

This dosa can be made anytime when people come over or you run out of any new food ideas. It is very healthy and light on the tummy, so if anyone is under the weather or just needs a change of taste, this dosa is the best bet.

You will need;
2 Cups Split green Moong dal soaked in enough water for 3-4 hours

1/2 cup rice flour
salt and sugar to taste
1/2 Onion Chopped fine

5-6 curry leaves
Ginger grated- 2 tbspns
oil to fry

Grind the soaked moong dal  fine. I like to keep it  a bit coarse, but its upto you. 

In a bowl, mix the rice flour and the ground dal  into  a thin batter, add the grated ginger, onions, curry leaves,  salt and sugar to the mixture. Mix well into  a pourable consistency or pancake consistency.

Heat the griddle/pan to very hot, once hot, grease it with some oil, spread the batter on the hot pan to form a small circle. Cover and cook for 2 minutes, flip and cook the other side. 

Enjoy it off the griddle with some coconut chutney and hot chai.
