Mini Rava Dosa/ Mini Semolina Pancakes for Kids TiffinBox

Mini Rava Dosa/ Mini Semolina Pancakes for Kids Tiffin Box

Mini rava dosa is a healthy breakfast item. From the name you can guess the hero ingredient here is Rava or Semolina.

The batter for this recipe is prepared by mixing semolina with beaten curd. You can mix vegetables to the batter. I have added onion and bell peppers (red, yellow, green) and tomatoes. You can also add coriander leaves and green chillies but I have skipped chillies (kids recipe). You can also add grated carrots or grated boiled potatoes to it. This is tasty and has nutrition of veggies.

If you are looking for some interesting yet easy recipes, read kid’s friendly recipes like potato bites, bread rolls, aloo kachori, aloo paratha, gobi paratha, veg arancini, cheesy cauliflower fritters, cheesy potato sandwich, vermicelli upma/pulao, bread poha/upma. You can make chocolate sandwich, pizza sandwich, plain potato sandwich, tomato omelette sandwich and many more. These are quick (under 5 mins) recipes.

There are few quick bread recipes for our kids tiffin box/ lunch ideas. If kid is 2 – 5 years you can give him finger foods in tiffin box. This is because they are learning to eat by their own. So for them it’s a time consuming process. You can’t expect your 3 yrs old kid to finish a two bread sandwich in 4 – 5 bites. They will take more time than a kid of 5 years. So we need to decide what type of food he would love and enjoy.

I will share my experience and ideas. My kid loves dosa and paratha stuff. So I make dosa from regular lentils batter, wheat flour, semolina, rice flour, ragi flour, buckwheat flour etc. And he loves all of them. He has no idea if it’s same dosa or different, but enjoys the varieties.

Similarly he does not like dal. but we mothers know how important is this for their development. So I make dal paratha with dal. Sometimes I stuff potatoes because he loves aloo paratha very much.

I’m sure all super moms are finding different ways to give best to their little champs. So moms if you have some unique and interesting tiffin box ideas, please comment below. I would love to make them and present here.
