Toddler Lunch 5

Today's Daycare Lunch Bag Yummies:

Snack # 1: Sliced apple, blueberries and banana drizzled with honey .

Snack #2: Banana Chips ( !) and mini raisins

Lunch : Thalipeeth and tomato ketchup

Note: Thalipeeth is a traditional Maharashtrian snack/meal that is very quick, nutritious and tasty. Its a thick pancake made of a multi grain roasted flour called bhajani. Typical bhajani which can be made in advance, will have roasted flour of rice, wheat, ragi (millet), besan, jowar ( sorghum), cream of wheat (Rava), asoefetida, cumin and coriander powder. To the flour add chili powder, turmeric, salt, chopped onions and cilantro to make a pliable sticky dough.
I add chopped spinach when I make thalipeeth for Y. Instead of chili powder, I use the Hungarian red pepper powder which gives the traditional red color without any heat. This tip is from my BFF ..thanks PG.


  1. will give Thalipeeth a try this wkend!

  2. we get ready mix flour for thalipeeth in indian stores ?

  3. Great idea I have bhajni at home. Will try it this weekend

  4. @PG..hope it works!

    @ Kavs....I haven't seen a ready mix. But you can easily make it at home. Roast and mix the flours and store in an airtight container.

    @Smita..Let me know if V likes it.
