With toddler and even older kids- sometimes something very simple works! Especially in their food journey- as mums we go nutter planning and making food and then they won’t even touch it!
But hey! I’ve got a recipe that worked for me and on huge demand I’m sharing the recipe here!! Do try and let me know! It’s great for lunch boxes – quick and simple!
1/2 kg boneless chicken breast
3-4 boiled potatoes
3 Carrots – (peeled and steamed)
One cup of peas ( steamed- soft)
Few florest of steamed broccoli ( optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh bread crumbs- around 2 cups.
1. Boil the chicken breast with little salt and some black peppercorns until soft. TIP: Don’t discard the broth -( I used it later for my sauce) you can even add it in rice or freeze for later use.)
2. Mash the boiled potatoes along with the carrots , peas and broccoli.
3. Shread the chicken well- I used chopper for a better texture. Add it in the veggies.
4. Add salt and pepper to taste. If your kid likes a little more flavor- add some garam masala too.
5. That’s all! Make shapes such as balls, flat kebabs, fingers- anything your kid would have fun eating- dip it in egg and then coat in bread crumbs- fry in little olive oil- ( pan fry is fine- I avoid deep frying)
(Tip: make the batch of bites- dip in egg and crumbs and freeze. Once they are set place them in a bag for freezer! )
6. Serve them with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, pulao, french fries, roti or just plain-
