This recipe is a perfect example that children are capable of eating the same dishes you eat – just that you need to tweak them a bit to make them baby-friendly.

In fact, you need to introduce them to dishes that are part of your routine meal, rather than keep cooking their comfort foods, so that it becomes easy for them to slide into your way of life.

Here, for example, we have made the ever-popular Gujarati dish chila, in a mini-format, with a mix of protein rich dals. Once you have soaked the dals, this Mini Mixed Moong Dal Chila is also easy and quick to make. Make them bite-sized, so your child can enjoy eating it herself.

with use of just minimal ingredients, these chilas are too flavourful and healthy too. Do give it a try for eve snacks to get your share of protein and iron.. and do not forget to make some green chutney as an accompaniment to these chilas.
