Ganesha Special “Fried Modak”, How To Make Fried Modak Recipe

September started and Some more recipes are in pipeline starting with Ganapati Bappa Special, “Fried Modak”. I have already posted “Ukdiche Modak”

You will get Modak for bappa In every maharashtriyan family for Ganapati Festival. It can be in any like mawa modak, kaju modak, fried modak or steam modak.

This todays modak recipe is dip fry with sweet coconut and sugar inner filling with some dry fruits for extra rich flavors. Instead of sugar, you can use jaggery. This is more healthier option but I want to try traditional way to make fried modak so used sugar only. For outer layer, I used semolina and plain flour or maida. This plain flour gives nice crispy outer layer even whole wheat flour is also good alternative with semolina. This inner feeling can be used to make karanji which is one more sweet to make for Ganesha and Gauri festivals.

Kheer-Recipe

How To Make Kheer or Payasam, Vermicilli Seviyan

From past few days, I was waiting for some occasion to make Vermicelli Kheer and to post on Yummyindianrecipes and on Thursday, I got a chance to make this kheer as it was Janmashtami so I made a kheer-puri for naivaidya. Also, one of my office colleague wants to know how to make kheer recipe so this is the one more reason.

It is very simple to make seviyan kheer or payasam. To make seviyan kheer, we need full fat cream as it will give nice thick structure to kheer so we don’t require khoya also. Khoya gives rich texture to kheer. Khoya can be easily available in sweet shops.

Toddler & Pre-schooler Tiffin & Lunchbox series

Yesterday, while filling my daughter prisha’s snack tiffin, I got an idea, why not add some toddler tiffin and lunchbox ideas on my blog so here I go with my todder and kids lunchbox series.

Today is the Friday and from today onward, I have started lunchbox series for toddler and pre-schooler. The reason behind this to start on friday this tiffin series is that you will get chance to prepare on weekend about about next week food and items.

I am sharing my food ideas as per my thought andknowldge however these just suggestion that what and how much you can add nutritional foods in your toddler tiffins.

My daughter is in Nursery so I always need to give her snack for her tiffin. It can be any not just a main course such as a rice or gravy and chapati or roti, even simple sandwich or veggie role work for her tiffin.

Children are always picky eater for their lunchbox and this is the main reason, we Mom’s get easily panic after looking at unfinished lunchbox.

Lunchbox ideas for kids

Adding or in fact, I can say hiding vegetables in the snacks is the great idea for fussy child. You can steam the vegetable and grated or mash them so child won’t get any texture while eating. I always try to add grated vegetables while making tikki or paratha.

Check today’s tiffin idea or lunchbox idea. I have given this tiffin for morning and evening snacks as she is also going daycare after her Nursery so according you chilld, you can increase or decrease the snacks.

Todays Lunchbox Item:

1. Khaman Dhokla
2. Tomato Ketchup or chutney
3. Any fruit, chopped. I have added Papaya.
4. Mixed dry fruit like cashew, raisin and dry fig.

Having at least any seasonal fruit in your child tiffin is good habit as your child also got used to it with seasonal fruits.

I will add new tiffin idea every week till than you can brows some section likes breakfast or evening snack section.

Lunchbox, you can use any steel or kids friendly lunchbox like Tupperware, even you can try a tiffin which having more than tow separation in one tiffin.

Notes:

1. I forgot to strain the kiwi juice so this is the main reason, i have not received proper result in green colour as you can see in the picture.
2. Use different variation for green colour, you can take spinach leaves also with kiwi.
