Toddler Lunch 16

Today's Daycare Lunch Bag:

Snack # 1: Cut up peaches and grapes with honey.

Snack #2: True North Pistachio crisp ( you gotto try these!) dried apricots with cheese stick.

Lunch: Cut up spinach na thepla with yogurt.

Note: Thepla is a  Gujarati dish that is easy, tasty and very versatile. You can add any greens or grated vegetables to the dough and it tastes delish! I make the dough the night before. In the morning, roll it out and heat on lightly oiled griddle.

Dough is made of  spinach leaves,whole wheat flour, turmeric, Hungarian pepper powder( or chili powder), cumin-coriander powder, salt, sugar, ginger, yogurt and oil. Ajwain tastes good but is optional.


  1. I love theplas, I also try to make him spinach parathas sometimes.

  2. nice. i can give this to HArsh for lunch one day.

  3. ok..I have a much do u make in one sitting? n what do u do with the leftover stuff???? I have probs, when I make something n it last forever..

  4. @ PG.... you know I HATE leftovers unless its something very special. Honestly, I would suggest that making small portions definitely helps. There are very few things you can do with a big batch of veggie leftovers if its chicken...then the options are many.
