Potato Cheese Sandwich | Kids Tiffin Box Recipes

Cheesy sandwich recipe

This potato cheese sandwich makes a great tiffin box idea. My 4 yrs old kid loves this sandwich in his tiffin box. Kids love cheese. Even we adults do love cheese. But because of fat concern we do just avoid this. But you can have this once or twice in a week. I also make potato spinach sandwich, pizza sandwich, chocolate sandwich for his tiffin box. And for a mom, happiness is when tiffin box is empty. That’s too dramatic 😉 . But yes we all want to see that child is enjoying his food. If kid is fussy eater like mine, it’s always a headache to think about interesting tiffin box ideas. So whenever my kid is happy with any dish, I feel like sharing on blog so that I can help other moms.

Though every kid has different taste and food habit, we can always try changing and inducing more healthy food habit. I have shared one more recipe of party appetizer veg seekh kabab, paneer corn seekh kabab, potato lollipop, potato bites for kid’s tiffin box , Cheesy potato croquettes recipes. And the good news is that you can prepare the mixture and refrigerate them. In morning you can just fry them or shallow fry them and make sandwich/ burger of them. Or even you can give them as finger foods. These are healthy as made from green vegetables, potatoes and cheese. So it will keep our child full for longer.

Other Kid’s Tiffin Box Ideas

I will mention here what are the other items I do give my child in his tiffin box. With age you can try more recipes. These are basically finger foods for age group 2 yrs to 5 yrs (kids and toddlers).

My kid is very fond of parathas. So I do try to give variation in that. I make aloo paratha, gobi paratha, lachha paratha, methi paratha, paneer paratha, dal paratha. Dal paratha I make because he doesn’t like dal but he likes paratha. So I knead flour in cooked dal and make paratha with that dough. In this way he gets nutrition of lentils as well. Similarly I try to stuff vegetables and paneer in paratha. And he enjoys such food. So I’m happy too. While making paratha for my kid, I use ghee instead of refined oil. Ghee is very essential for bone health and brain development of kids.

You can also give idli, dosa, other savory crepes and pancakes, poha, upma, vermicelli upma (gives feel of maggie). In many schools junk foods are not allowed in tiffin box in order to develop healthy eating habit. So you can not give maggie, pasta, pizza etc in tiffin box. So in place of maggie use substitute like vermicelli and add different veggies to it. Read my vermicelli upma and try adding vegetables you think your kid would love. Minimize or remove chilli powder/ green chilli from recipe.

I will share other easy and healthy tiffin box recipes soon. Stay updated and subscribe via email to get direct update in your mailbox.

Mix vegetable vermicelli biryani

Vermicelli Biryani/ Semiya Biryani

Look at this colourful vermicelli biryani. Tempting!!

Also it has all nutrition of green veggies like green peas, potatoes, spinach, carrots, beans, red bell pepper & yellow bell pepper. Again I would say that this vermicelli is hand made and home made.

Vermicelli biryani is an easy breakfast recipe which is healthy and kids friendly. I have added shahi biryani masala to the dish. This added extra flavor to the dish. You can add simply maggi magic masala also to the vermicelli for kids tiffin box. Since it looks like that of maggie you can replace maggie with this recipe. In many schools maggie is not allowed in tiffin box. But you can give this in place of maggie. This is nutritious and filling also.

What are other vermicelli dishes we can make?

My vermicelli is handmade by my mother-in-law. I must admire her expertise and speed in But you can anyways get that in any supermarket. Add whatever vegetable you feel your kid loves. From vermicelli you can make vermicelli upma, pulao and biryani. Although there is little difference in method and spices we use for different recipes. Also it makes great sweet dessert or pudding. This vermicelli pudding just takes 5 minutes. Infact any vermicelli dish is quick as it takes 3 – 5 minutes to get cooked.

This is a 10 minutes recipe. What else we need on lazy mornings? A breakfast that is tasty and nutritious.

Spinach Corn Sandwich Recipe

Spinach Corn Sandwich

Something very close to my heart!! Spinach corn sandwich!! This sandwich is one of my favorite sandwich. The story of being nostalgic goes like this.

Near my home there was a Crossword book store and a cafetaria (CCD). It used to be my daily routine that after office hours or even on holidays I used to go to crossword, read there for sometime, pick a book then straight to CCD to grab my favvv Spinach Corn Sandwich and a cup full of Cappuccino. I never got bored of that combination.

This is healthy and your kids will love this yummy sandwich. You may add extra cheese to this. To make it even more healthy replace all purpose flour with wheat flour or almond flour. Serve hot with any kind of sauce of your choice.

Wheat Flour Crepes | Atte Ka Cheela

Wheat Flour Crepes | Atte Ka Cheela

Wheat flour crepes or atte ka cheela are savory crepes made from whole wheat flour. However you can mix it with other flours. This is similar to besan cheela or tomato omelette but here the main ingredient is wheat flour. This is a healthier version of chilla. Aate ka cheela or chilla is easily digestible because of whole wheat flour and a recommendable food for kids and toddlers.

My kid loves this aate ka chilla and calls it as dosa as it resembles regular dosa slightly. This is an instant recipe and does not need any preparation. I have started giving this to him when he was 1 yr old. Even today he loves this atte ka dosa in his tiffinbox.

How to prepare atte ka chilla?

I make atte ka chilla and atte ka dosa both. Though both are similar with little difference in method of preparation. In atte ka chilla I add onion, ginger, green chillies and curry leaves. Whereas dosa is plain crepe made from wheat flour or mixture of crepes. You can make any stuffing to serve with atte ka dosa.

When mixing water to flour, add gradually so that it will be lumps free. The batter should be medium flowing consistency. It should not be very thick or very thin. Mix chopped onion, ginger, green chillies, curry leaves.

Heat oil and then spread the batter.

There is another way. Make batter of wheat flour, salt and water.

Heat oil in a tawa. Put curry leaves, ginger, onion 1/2 tsp and wait for 10 15 seconds. Then add batter and spread. I normally make chilla with this method.

These savory crepes have no other spices added other than salt, curry leaves, ginger. Hence easy to feed toddlers and kids. If you want you can add spices like regular besan ka cheela (or chilla). But I like it plain with onion, ginger and curry leaves. You can serve these with tomato ketchup/ any chutney or with tea as breakfast.

It can be made in sweet and savoury both ways. In the sweet pancake, sugar is added to the flour first and then poured to the pan and shallow fried (just like malpua). Well I like to add banana puree to the flour mixture. You can make this mixture with milk

One more point to note: if you are making dosa and want to make them crispy, add semolina and eno or any fruit salt.

  • Immediately add one ladle batter on it and spread evenly as we do in dosa. Keep the flame in low as it will take time to cook properly. Keep on checking with a fork or spatula and turn it to the other side. Let it cook for 2-3 mins.
  • Remove from heat if it’s done completely. Garnish and serve with coriander chutney or tomato ketchup.

Notes

You can add oats flour to wheat flour to give it a healthy twist. Don't miss ginger and curry leaves as they add to the flavour dominantly.

Onion Potato Poha | Kanda Batata Poha

Poha

Onion Potato Poha | Kanda Batata Poha | Easy Breakfast Recipe

Poha is one of the healthiest breakfast dish. This dish is popularly known as kanda poha (onion poha). Originally this is a popular maharashtrian food item. However this is equally loved in other parts as well. This is made from flattened rice known as poha. This onion potato poha or kanda batata poha is similar to the authentic kanda poha except for the potatoes I love to add. Adding potatoes makes the breakfast more filling. This makes an wonderful kid’s tiffin recipe as well.

maharashtrian poha

I add potatoes and green peas to my poha. Fried peanuts are also important ingredient of poha. You can add grated coconut. However I don’t like coconut on poha so i have not added it. Rather I like to sprinkle some bhujia sev or finely chopped tomato and onion on top of it. Well this is called as kanda poha because onion or kanda is the main ingredient in this recipe.

This onion and potato poha is excellent breakfast or tiffin box recipe for kids because poha is high in carbohydrate. So it helps in creating energy for our super-active kids. Also poha is easily absorbed and easily digestible. So it keeps tummy happy and full for longer.

Tips to prepare perfect onion and potato poha / kanda batata poha

1. Poha is one of the simplest recipe. It doesn’t require much preparation and hard work. Only thing you need to do is wash poha and leave it on a colander or stariner for 5 minutes. This will soften the poha flakes.

2. But don’t soak in water. Just wash it off and spread on a dry plate or colander or strainer.

3. If you will soak it in water, then it will be moist with excess water while cooking. in such case dish will be mushy and this will spoil the taste of it. Poha should be fluffy and soft.

4. If you feel it’s not wet enough (and soft) and little stiff, sprinkle some more water and keep aside for 2 – 3 minutes before adding anything.

5. I shallow fry peanuts first and then remove them from oil and add in the end. I do this because, by the time potatoes gets cooked, peanuts will be burnt and will not taste good.

6. Another thing I do, After adding mustard seeds I add chopped potatoes and cook on low flame for 5 minutes or till it’s cooked. Then I add onion and saute. Else by the time potatoes get cooked, my onion turns brown and I don’t like that burnt onions in my poha. Otherwise you can use boiled potato cubes for this recipe.

7. Add lemon juice for better taste. I like this which finely chopped onion and tomatoes on top of it. garnish with handful of coriander leaves.
