Dragon rolls... the cheesy ones

Dragon rolls.... now these are not the dragon rolls that are like the large spring rolls stuffed with a lot of veggies. We have a restaurant nearby that serves this dish named dragon roll which in nothing but cheese and onions stuffed inside a simple flour wrapper. The stuff is so simple yet my kids and me are so much in love with it. They love it so much that they tend order it most of the times. Now .... last time when we were at the restaurant and were enjoying this starter I felt it was too simple to replicate at home... and so why not try

I was sure about the ingredients because it was pretty simple to make out. Tried making it at home with homemade wrappers and they turned out awesome. The kids gave me full marks for their favourite and they finished it off in no time. They were so excited when they were served something that they love so much. There were showers of praise from those sweet little hearts and I could see they were really true

If you are a cheese lover like us then I am sure you too will fall for it. Try it and enjoy 

Vegatable Mini Omelette.... perfect for kids :)

Including veggies in every meal is definitely a task. A task that all moms have to face when planning for a meal or even a snack... say a healthy one. This simple snack or side dish is definitely gonna be on your menu if you think that veggies need to be tricked in to your kids tummy without giving them a chance to pick them out

My kids love omelette loaded with onions and I thought this might be helpful in getting in some other veggies too into their little tummies. I tried adding some carrots and cabbage into the omelettte and guess what they did feel it a little different but dont worry.... they loved it to the core. They loved it so much that it has become an " often made menu" in our home

Its definitely a change from the regular omelettes that I serve as a side during our lunch times. Spice it up as per your wish and enjoy

Pizza dough

Every time we make bread and buns or pizza the basic dough that we make is almost the same. I find it too repetitive to describe the entire dough process for every recipe. So I thought I will make one detailed explanatory post on making pizza dough. This can be referred every time a similar dough is prepared. You can always use the ingredients quantity from the original post and then refer the process of making the dough in this post here

If you master making this dough then you will never think of buying bread or buns or pizza from outside. Yes I am sure you will fall in love with your breads once you start baking them. The aroma that fills your kitchen, the eagerness to check on the final product, the waiting, the testing, the tasting...... every bit of making your own bread is fun. You will love the experience and feel good about what you have learnt

Well coming to the recipe ... this is a generalised version of pizza dough. This can altered as per the ingredients quantity specified in the required recipe


Eggless Pav bun... soft and feathery ....

Pav Bhaji is a great hit in almost everyones house and in our home they are no less. We love pav bhaji to the core and the kids are a very big fan too. After making breads at home I thought I should try making pav at home too since the method is almost the same. I gave it a try once and it was an instant success. From that time on we have never had store-bought pav buns

My kids are also very concerned about buying breads from outside, they are so used to homemade now that they insist in making some pav rather than indulging in store-bought ones. If kids are so particular then how can I not make it. Now we make these regularly and the whole family enjoys it to the core

The recipe is almost the same as bread except with a few variations here and there. I make pav two ways - which purely depends on my mood. I sometimes follow tangzhong method and sometimes regular. Both ways am happy with the results but sometimes I feel pavs made using tangzhong method are softer 

Grilled Cheese Sandwich.... kids love it

The simplest snack that a kid gets to enjoy is this grilled cheese sandwich. Oh... how much they lover them. It is so simple to make that I dont mind making it for them once in a while. Its ok to have a little junk food once in a while and this one is worth it ;)

My kids love this so much that they can keep eating it anytime its served. They were introduced to this sandwich a few years back when we used to go to visit my parents in mangalore. We used to go to this ice-cream store called Pabbas and cant resist myself mentioning how good the ice-cream used to be. For the sides we used to buy these cheese sandwiches for the kids. They would order it every time we visited that place

Just couple of bread slices and a slice of cheese and a pinch of pepper is all that is needed to make these sandwiches and make the kids of the house really really happy
