  • Serve hot with curds and tomato catchup.



PS: Finely chopped onion also can be added, if one likes it. This dough can be prepared the previous night, which would make the parathas soft and less work in the early morning. One can even try with Kasoori methi leaves and ajwain, which increases the taste and food value.

Corn and Peas With Cottage Cheese

Yellow pearls of corn combined with peas and cubes of cottage cheese look really

appealing and i'm sure your little angel will enjoy munching on them. A new flavour

of mixed dried herbs is added to perk up this dish, as children at this age do enjoy

experimenting with newer flavours. You should cook both the peas and the corn til

they are very soft and can be mashed and chewed by your toddler

Ingredients


1/4 cup sweet corn kernels (makai ke dane)
1/4 cup green peas
1/4 cup paneer (cottage cheese) , cubed
1 tbsp onions , chopped
1 clove of garlic (lehsun) , chopped
1/4 tsp dried mixed herbs
1 tsp butter
salt to taste


Method


Heat the butter and sauté the onion and garlic for 2 minutes.


Add the corn, peas and ½ cup of water and allow to simmer till the peas and corn are soft.


Add the paneer, mixed herbs and salt and mix well


Using a fork, mash the corn kernels and peas so that your toddler will not have

trouble swallowing them.
