Spaghetti Squash for kids




Being a worried Mom of 16 months old, who is not a big eater, makes me try different varieties. I do not know, how you can relate to me, but surprisingly most of my friends do not have this difficulty. My baby just few days back started taking cow milk, and 'touch wood' she continues it. I have been trying different recipes and the one she liked the most is broccoli-potato-carrot soup.  I will share the recipe soon. I just tried this spaghetti squash today, and she seemed to like it.
Here is the recipe
You will need
Spaghetti squash-1
Carrot medium size-1
Salt to taste
Brown sugar 1tbsp
Butter/cooking oil-2tbsp


Method
Pre heat the oven to 350F. Make some slits on squash here and there. Pop it in the oven for 1hr. After an hour check if it has cooked properly by inserting a knife into it, if the knife moves in smoothly with little resistance, that is when you know it is ready.
Let it cool down, meanwhile heat oil in a pan and saute noodled/julienned carrots in  low flame. Add brown sugar and pinch of salt and mix well.
Remove the seeds from cooled squash and with the help of fork, remove the inner soft part( it will be flaky and noodley in texture). Add it to the sauteed carrots and mix well, cook for 1min and turn off the stove.
The spaghetti squash is ready to serve and enjoy. 

Caution: Please do not give it to the infants with no teeth.

Dhokla with the readymade flour available in the market

Dhokla is one of the dish I always wanted to try, this time I bought some ready made dokla flour form the "Patel brothers" one of the Indian grocery store in our near by area. The ingredients on the pack say that it contains besin (Gram flour) and rice flour. I was little confused, about the kind of ingredients that goes into the recipe. Later I did a little research and came up with my own recipe. It worked, dokla came out wonderfully. I never tasted dokla before, but now after making this yummy and healthy Indian flour cakes, I regret for not tasting them before. Form now dokla always stays in the weekly snack menu of our home.

I feel so dumb sometimes, because I bought dokla flour but forgot the fact that I do not have dokla plates. If your case is same like me, give me "high-5"!! No problem you can use the idli plates instead. Problem solved!  Now coming to the recipe.

Ingredients:
Dokla flour- 1 cup
Curd/ Yogurt-1/2cup
Turmeric-1/4 t.s
Chilli powder-1/4 t.…
