On the 25th was T’s star birthday which his awesome grandparents celebrated in grand style. Everyone gorged on yum food and I needless to say on ‘Dosas’, at the function and at home. I simply cannot get enough of CRISP paper thin dosas which my MIL is a total goddess at!
So after three days of oblivion on whether my fridge was stocked up for the coming week or not I came home to a rude shock of a nearly empty fridge. I really didn’t have the time to go veg shopping for T so I could fix him his regular meal so I decided to make do with what I had and this is what I had:
- Half a red pepper
- 1 small Apple &
- 2 medium carrots
I figured the combination was a little odd but since all the given fruit and veg were inherently sweet in nature I thought this could turn out to be an interesting one and it sure did!
Heres what I did:
- Grated the pepper, apple and carrots
- Sautéed it all in a teaspoon of ghee
- Added in a cup of water &
- Cooked until it got real soft
- A tablespoon of fresh cream / Malai
- Added in half a Katori of slightly mashed steamed white rice
Thrilled to report T relished his lunch and even had a scoop of cold curd to ‘seal the deal’. Happy Tummy equals Happy Mummy!
