Fried Rice-Kids Lunch Box

Hello Sweeties!!! Are you well today? Did the kids take the lunch with them to school without any fuss? Lately this has been the story in out home, kids wake up, get ready with morning rituals and  sniff the lunch boxes to try guessing, whats for lunch?

If this has been a regular thing in your homes as well, worry no more. Moms United is there to help you. I have been experimenting in few items that are not only loved by my kids, but which are also easy to assemble in the morning rush. This is essentially as easy as giving tadka to rice and gets ready in no time.

When I was young the lunch box never changed unless it was my birthday. Taking the same old Poli Bhaji aka Roti Subji made school less appealing, seem like a drag throughout the day!! The anticipation of whats for lunch, smells of aloo parathas smeared with ghee from an old classmate's lunch box kept inviting us that we raided his tiffin box well before we were actually supposed to, Come on; who ever will pass out on an delicious piece of aloo paratha, well not me for sure. Sigh!! only if my Lunch box was  worth the wait, School might have been an interesting place to be!!!!
