Taco Potatana... a little treat for hungry kids

Well I told you how much my kids love taco mexicana served at dominos. This one is something in that style but then entirely different too :) One day when I made some whole wheat parottas and fried potatoes(as they like) for dinner they said they wanted to eat something special that day as they were very happy. A simple parotta and side wont do mamma was the chorus. But then I tried convincing them saying I was already done making dinner and it was time to just serve it. They asked me not to serve right away but just wait for a few minutes. They went to the living room to discuss something really important ;)

The kids came back with a beautiful smile and said dinner will be served.... say the same but with style that day. The only thing was that they just needed a little help from me. I told them I would offer them the little help they wanted. With a big smile and lots of giggles they said they would love to have "Taco Potatana". And I asked how should we make it. They immediately detailed out instructions as a smart chef and asked me if its ok.  I got what they wanted. A week before I made them taco mexicana... made specially our style and now they were with the same plan but added a little twist. I got it and agreed 

Thats it ... we had a wonderful dinner (as per the kids and I felt so too). They arranged the table and set everything up. Placed small bowls for each of us with rasgullas we made that evening. A small tea light candle was placed in a beautiful and fancy candle holder. When I came to the living room to serve dinner I was really surprised how happy they were to see me smiling at what they had done for me. The dinner was very simple yet the kids made it a very special one. Forgot to mention that we also made some cold cappuccino (cold coffee) and cold boostocino(cold boost) to go with the meal. Loved the evening, loved the meal and loved the cuteness overloaded in the kids minds

Try making this for your kids snack or meal and see how they enjoy it. You can even make these when you have some whole wheat parottas

Serves... 3 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need...

Whole wheat parottas - 6
Potatoes - 3 large
Red Chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Mayonaisse - as needed
Tomato ketchup - as needed
Oil - 1 tbspn + more when making the taco
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....

  • Boil potatoes and peel them. Cut them into small bite-sized cubes. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a nonstick pan. Toss in the cubed potatoes 
  • Season the cubed potatoes with salt and red chilli powder

  • Fry this on medium flame till evenly roasted and slightly crispy
  • Get some parottas ready to be assembled

  • To assemble the taco potatana heat a pan on medium flame. Drizzle a few drops of oil and place a whole wheat parotta on it. Keep the flame very low and let the parotta get almost crisp(not fully) drizzling a few more drops of oil if needed
  • Once done remove the parotta on to a plate and spoon in fried potatoes as needed
  • Top it with some mayonaisse and ketchup
  • Fold the parotta in half and again place it on the tawa to make it completely crisp
  • Sprinkle somw dominos seasoning on top when the parottas are still hot
  • Remove it to a serving plate and serve with love

                    • Dont cook the parottas till completely crisp during the first time you put it on tawa. If it gets too crisp it will start breaking when you fold it
                    • Dont put too much oil instead just drizzle just a few drop at a time to make the parottas crisp
                    • Keep the flame low to get the right crisp
