For any mom with a fussy eating toddler, it feels absolutely delightful to see them eating a healthy food like this without coaxing! This recipe is simple, healthy and we can be rest assured that it will turn out good. My 3 yr old relished it and so did we.Thanks Tarla aunty.

Another great combo. I would have the Rajma with Brown rice to make it healthier. Rajma in any form is a great source of protein and great for vegetarians like me.
