Let's Make EASY Breakfast Recipe for Kids Tiffin, Lunch Box [Roti Veg Puffs Without Oven]

 Here's Ravneet Bhalla's answer to all of you looking for Healthy breakfast ideas, healthy snack ideas, healthy food, healthy food recipes, healthy breakfast, healthy dinner ideas.

This easy roti pocket recipe is easy to make and yummy to taste - of course, when Ravneet Bhalla posts a recipe, it has got to wear the healthy tag too.

Let's prepare the chapati pocket dough, which is as simple as making your normal roti dough. 
The difference is only that I follow no-knead dough method or autolysis. 
Add water, a little amount of fenugreek powder, salt, and flour. 
Mix with a spoon or spatula until it resembles wet sand. Splash water on top of the atta. Cover and keep asidefor 20-30 minutes. 
The atta will set beautifully and you need tojust gather it into dough. That's it. The roti pocket dough is ready. Keep it aside.
Now let's make the nutritious, yummy, healthy filling for these roti tacos.
This healthy lunch recipe uses a bowl of boiled kabuli chana or white chickpeas, raw papaya, 1 potato, 50 grams of beans, pumping (though I have not used), pointed gourd or parwal or potol, 1 carrot, cauliflower, ginger, green chili. In fact, you may add veggies of choice. 

I make this delicious bhajji with cabbage too and it tastes so so yum without onion-garlic tomato.

Let's cook the veggies for bhajji in 1 tbsp oil. Stir in jeera and throw in grated ginger. After a minute, add all veggies one by one. Add salt, mix and cover for 5 minutes. Stir again and then add boiled chana or chickpeas, chili powder, turmeric, amchur powder, and  garam masala (I have used my MIL's odia curry powder and Ihave already shared the recipe of this powder which is much more flavorful and aromatic than the garam masala you get in the stores).
Add 1 /2 cup of water. Cook for 4-6 whistles. Open and mash it all as you mash the bhajji for pav bhajji.

this makes a delicious nutritious pav bhaji too. if you want, you may add butter to it. I do not add anything extra here. I keep it plain simple and healthy. It still tastes delicious but for kids, you may add butter to give them a cheesy feel.

Let's make the roti pockets. You will need to roll out each chapati thin. Do not keep the rotis thick. Cook the chapatis in a hot skillet on medium flame. Avoid overcooking the chapatis. Just keep them half cooked. 
Now if you have pumpkin sauce handy, you may add that or any other sauce of choice. Even tomato sauce should taste amazing here. Smear the half-cooked chapati with pumpkin sauce. Top with bhajji in the middle. Lift the chapati from one end until the middle. Then lift from the opposite side and cover over the first fold. 
Similarly, fold from the remaining two sides. immediately place on the hot skillet on low flame. Press hard with a spatula or roti maker. Smear some oil or ghee on
top and flip side. Smear some oil on the opposite side and cook on a low flame until the two sides are roasted well.
This roti pocket tastes yum on its own and makes a healthy snack idea too. I often make these pockets with paneer shawarma. My hubby is so fond of it and compares it with any store-bought rolls. Trust me, I use no tomatoes when I am cooking for hubby dear. Despite that, we love our simple meals :) My idea of cooking is to make everything easy, simple, and healthy. What about you/ Do share your experiences in comments. Are you looking for more healthy snack ideas for kids? Looking forward to hearing back from you on this healthy food recipe. take care until we meet next. God bless.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
