When one wants to make a quick healthy snack for children the easiest, quickest and an extremely delicious option is making some breadizza. A close cousin of the Pizza, but much easier to prepare.
All the below mentioned ingredients can be used as per requirement.
Bread slices. Tomatoes, red, green and yellow Bell pepper and onions sliced Black olives. Tomato ketchup, oregano, chilly flakes, pepper and salt. Grated cheese.
Method: Butter the slices of bread on both the sides. Heat a griddle. Roast them on one side. Apply ketchup on the roasted side and pile it with the veggies, olives, herbs, salt pepper and cheese. Roast the other side till crisp and then microwave for half a minute for the cheese to melt. Serve with tomato ketchup.
Ghee rice is a popular rice preparation prepared in the South of India and is accompanied by a korma or a spicy curry and raita. It is sans spice though one can add some ginger garlic paste for that slight punch. I have stuck to the original and authentic way of making it.
250 gms Basmati rice
2 inch piece of Cinnamon
1 star fennel
1 Bay leaf
10 cashews halved
2 medium sized onions finely chopped
5 tbsps Ghee/ clarified butter
500 ml boiling water.
Wash and soak the rice for about twenty minutes. Drain and keep aside. Heat ghee in a pan. Add the whole spices and allow to splutter. Drop in the cashewnuts and roast to a golden brown. Drop in the onions and roast till translucent. Add the drained rice and roast for a couple of minutes. Pour in boiling water and allow it to come to a roaring boil. Cover and cook on a gentle flame till the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked and fluffy. Uncover and mix with a light hand with a fork. Serve it hot with korma or any spicy curry of your choice. Recipe link to the korma is given below.
