Brocolli Corn Salad

Brocolli Corn Salad

Hi Moms, this is ideally my salad no 2 for the month of Jan. In my last post I had shown how to make Vegetarian Pasta Salad. And in this one, I plan to share salad made of one of my favourite ingredient ‘Broccoli’.

Living in a city like Mumbai, I always feel there is not enough supply of good farm fresh vegetables and winter’s is the only season which brings the freshness along specially with the lovely greens on the plate.

Having said that, I am sharing the recipe of Broccoli Corn Salad made in my style. In this Salad, I have steamed the broccoli so that its soft and does not have the raw effect. At the same time I have used boiled corn to compliment with the softness of broccoli.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Small Broccoli (Steamed)
  • 150 gm Corn (Boiled)
  • 1 Small Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 3-4 tbsp Raisins
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper as per taste
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar

METHOD

  • In a pan heat Olive Oil
  • Saute the raisins in the oil.
  • Add onions & bell peppers. Saute for one min
  • Add boiled corn and steamed broccoli. Saute for one min and switch off the gas.
  • Add Salt, Pepper & Vinegar as per the required taste.
  • Serve Warm

NOTE : You can also serve the salad chilled

Ragi/Nachni Porridge

Ragi/Nachni Porridge

The beauty of porridge’s is in it’s Simplicity & Nutrition Value. It’s a meal you can feed your kid right from his toddler days to adulthood obviously making some changes as they grow.

I personally consider it a wholesome meal specially for breakfast. And if it is made of ingredient like nachni/ragi, the word healthy will feel short.

Well I started giving this porridge to my little one since 7 months of age and am sharing this recipe with you moms.

INGREDIENTS

  1. 3/4 Cup Ragi/ Nachni Flour
  2. 1/4 Cup Oats
  3. 3-4 tbs Almonds
  4. 1/3 Cup Jaggery (optional)
  5. Milk/ Water as per the consistency

METHOD

  • Dry roast the Ragi flour and keep aside
  • Dry roast oats and blend it in a mixture
  • Mix both the above ingredients with water/ milk to achieve the desired consistency
  • Heat on the flame for 10 mins stirring continuously to ensure no lumps are formed
  • Mix in the jaggery to the above mixture and stir the porridge continuously ensuring  the jaggery melts
  • Remove from the flame
  • Mix in the almond powder
  • Serve it in the bowl and feed your toddler

NOTE

  • Soak Nachni in water, overnight till it sprouts. Remove access water in a muslin cloth. Dry the nachni and roast it well. Blend it in a mixture till you get fine powder

#25 The Healthy Snowman

#25 The Healthy Snowman

I have made a snowman earlier using idli’s. However, this time my snowman is healthiest of all. Wanna know why ? Simply because this time the snowman is made of broken whear/ dalia.

I personally feel kids tend to reject healthy nutritious food bcaz of lack of taste and to get them motivated is to make it attractive to their eyes. And with that thought i have given the daliya/ broken wheat a twist my plating it as a snowman and topping it with some fresh fruits.

So all moms out there, this christmas turn healthy with this version of snowman.
