Madraasi with Kids – Week 4

Standard

As weeks start growing, I could see the interest and passion towards cooking in these kids. There are few who come 30 mins before the class and start asking me about the dish, the preparation and even the healthiest part of consuming the dish.

The main motive of this class is to stop kids consuming junk foods, when they knew to cook, they themselves prepare what they need. I feel really happy and proud, when I came to know from their mother’s, that they cook the same dish at home. Also the whole family loved the food and this would be most pride moment of Being Madraasi.

This week we had two classes and due to exams there were only three of the kids coming to the class, among three (two were the youngest in the class).

Let me share the recipes and pictures taken during the class…

Class 1: Indian Frittata – Click on this link for recipe: https://madraasi.com/2016/03/04/indian-frittata/

Frittata is an Italian dish prepared with egg as a key ingredient. Indian Frittata is the same as frittata but I have induced Indian spices like chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala, so the name. A good one for breakfast, I have also induced potatoes and carrots. Because of the egg, carrots, cheese, butter, potato it been a healthiest dish for kids. You can also add spinach to it.

ButterMilk

As summer started, I wanted teach at least few coolants, and here comes ButterMilk (Indian coolant) available at all Indian houses throughout the summer.

Class 2: Bread Gateau – Click on this link for recipe: https://madraasi.com/2016/03/04/bread-gateau/

Bread Gateau is an English recipe, gateau meaning a dish containing layers of fruits and cheese. As of summer, we could see varieties and colourful fruits and thought why to not go with fruits and also on the same hand it should be healthy for kids. Here comes my Bread Gateau, Bread Gateau goes out well for breakfast and as a dessert.

Indian Frittata

Standard

Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette with few more ingredients like veggies or meat or pasta, based on one’s flavor. The word frittata means “fried” which means the eggs are beaten fried in skillet with fried potatoes.

I have named it as Indian Frittata, since I have induced few basic Ingredients spices like chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala to flavor the frittata. This goes out good for breakfast. Let us move on to the recipe…
