Undi- Tiffin box Series

Hello Readers, I am going to post tiffin and lunch box ideas for kids and even elders can enjoy it. I have been requested by some of my readers especially insta followers. I will try to post Manya's and Adhya's tiffin/snack box pictures as and when possible. P.S: Kids are always moody and so are my daughters, they need not finish off the whole lot of thing you have packed and it happens with my kids too she does finish her food rarely she gets back sometimes reasons can be many as she says she was busy playing or she had no mood, sometimes she even says She Forgot ;). So just try your best and pack limited. Do not over stuff your kids box just because you  think your kid will finish it in school. Pack according to his/her capability of eating. This tiffin box has Mini Undi with pickle for the elder one and honey for the younger one as she loves honey with her Undi. A banana for mid snacking. My mid snack break is very light and most of the time healthy. For Undi recipe please follo…

Corn and Pomegranate Salad

This is a healthy salad and can be made easily.

Ingredients: 300g  sweet corn steamed and cooled ¼ of a cucumber, peeled and diced into small pieces 2 tomatoes, diced into small pieces Handful of pomegranate jewels Dressing Juice of half lime 1 green chilli, finely chopped A tsp coriander leaves, chopped Salt to taste
Wash the sweetcorn and leave to dry. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a jam jar and shake to mix all the flavours together. Set to one side. Place the corn in a bowl with the diced cucumber and diced tomatoes. Sieve the dressing over the salad and toss it together. Finally add pomegranate on top, mix  and serve immediately. Aps Note: If you are serving it for lunch and want to prepare the salad first itself, I recommend you to just chop the vegetables and keep corn and pomegranate ready and mix the dressing just befor you serve or else the salad will release water and wont be fresh. Happy Cooking, Till Later then,
