This goes out to all mommies of fussy eaters out there .
The no - fuss, no mess bite-on-the-go rollon version of chapathi vegetable platter.
Our boys definitely like to have chapathis , but at the same time...they are not much keen on the "tear- dip-munch" routine of having it .
Thats how chapathis need to be fed, in our household.
And many a times, the demand is for "motta- chapathy" (rolled with omlette inside). The request is never turned down..coz, into the egg mix would have gone all the vegetables that was supposted to be , at the very first place, to be served with the chapathy. Be it anything..from dal to sabji..it would be mashed and mixed with the egg.
So, this time...for a change...decided to try the egg the other way round.
Not on the inside, but on the outside.
The ingredients are all set.
Beat the egg and add some tomato ketchup to it. Pull out any vegetable curry that you have in hand.
Had some cabbage-beans thoran (click "here" for the recipe) which was prepared for lunch to be served with rice..so, straight it went into the egg. Salt and pepper to taste. Do check the salt level. you dont need it much, coz the thoran/poriyal already has all the flavours in there.
Dip the chapathi well in the egg veggie mix.
Turn over and let the egg coat well on either side.
Dab a tsp of oil on a flat cooking pan, and lay the chapathi .
Add some more veggies at top.
Turn over till the egg is cooked well on either side.
Roll and off it goes , straight into the plates. No side dishes...no dipping sauces needed. All you do is bite bite till you are done and take my word....
The kids will definitely enjoy it and ask for more.
Mine...just did ! They were not very pleased seeing the vegetable curry along with the egg..but once eating this..they defintiely wanted more servings.
Well ..not just Mr. President, but felt me too wanted to have that banner flying high up..then !
Carbs, protein, vitamins, fibre...have all gone in one single pack..no mess..no fuss. Just "mamma...can I have one more of this please..." to be heard from the dining table.
