Cook's Hideout: Kid's Delight-5 Ingredient Fix Roundup

May 22, 2013

Kid's Delight-5 Ingredient Fix Roundup

Finally I'm here with the Kid's Delight-5 Ingredient Fix roundup. First off big thanks to Valli for letting me host the event. Thanks to all of you who have sent your delicious dishes to the event. My special thanks to my non-blogging friends and cousins who took time out of their busy schedules to cook, take pictures and write about their kid's favorite dishes.
As Priya said in her email that this is not a tough theme, but it definitely makes you think about what we are feeding our kids. Basically my concept is 'less is more' and that holds good for kids food too. I'm so glad so many of you joined in to share these delicious kid friendly dishes. There might be some dishes that have more than 5 ingredients, but I let them slide since the whole point of the exercise is to have fun.
I think I've included all the entries that I received. If I missed your entry, I sincerely apologize and if you leave a comment on this post with the link, I will update the post with it. Thank you.
So without further ado, here are the entries:

First up is my dear friend Jyothy who sent 3 of her daughter's favorites:

Mansi @ Aroma of Spices sent her Paalak Paneer Paratha. About the dish in her own words: "Baby A started going to formal school in April and I continued my pursuit for nutritious food that I could put in her tiffin box – which keeps her full till she reaches her daycare. One advantage on my side is that A loves methi and everything green for her is methi – even if it is spinach/ paalak or dhania/ coriander. So while methi paratha remained her favorite in winters – spinach came to my rescue as soon as summers arrived and methi disappeared from the market. This one is a spinach paratha, to which I add in ‘ever-available-in-delhi’ paneer."
Paalak Paneer Paratha
