Kid’s Delight – Sweet festival dishes for kids (17,18,19 and 24,25,26)
Sowmya will be hosting the Edition and is calling for ideas that can fit under Sweet Festival dishes for Kids. Other thing that you might have to look out will be the following
It should be sweet only (savories not accepted)
It should be pure veg and no eggs
Cooking should be done in less than an hour
Instant Idlis/ dosas
Normally Idli/Dosa require long hours of soaking, fermentation. Show how this can be reduced and made relatively faster.
Mess Free Tiffin Box
Dry snacks and dry lunch box recipes (not recipes like rice which spills over)
Essentially what we pack for kids to their school. This can’t be cookies, cakes for all days. It can be light lunches as well. More like sandwiches, rolls etc.
Desserts with Vegetables
Example you can make any dessert from any county, however all three should not be the same. Like you can’t be doing only halwa for all three days. It can be a halwa, a cake, a pudding whatever. Vegetables for example can be carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, zucchini, etc.
The list of vegetables is not limited to the above, it can be anything.
Vegetables have to be different, can be any cuisine, any form. Meaning it can be indian halwas, cakes, icecreams etc. Examples: Carrot halwa, beets icecream, etc.
Cooking with Fruits
From the listed fruits below, cook any three dishes. It can be any course, any cuisine. Can be in any form. Meaning if you select Mangoes, it can be ripe, raw, puree, slices.
Only one fruit to be selected and all three days cook with the same fruit. Again the fruit can be in any form, any cuisine, any course.
Like mango, it can be mango chutney, mango rice, mango ice cream.
Light snack that can be served during evening times. It can be anything, only condition be that you won’t serve these dishes for other meals. Can be those chats, savory dishes, pastries, puffs etc. Can’t be the same item everyday.
Cooking with Capsicum as main dish
