We all have fussy eaters at home, don’t we? Here are a few healthy & nutritious breakfast recipes that can help kids function at optimum capacity throughout the day.

    Multigrain Cheela

  • Heat a sauté pan and add little oil to it.
  • Add chopped vegetables of your kids choice and sauté for some time.
  • Now add salt to taste and mix well. Remove the pan from the flame and let the vegetables cool.

  • Mix wheat flour, gram flour and oats flour in a bowl. Add turmeric powder, Ajwain and salt in the bowl and mix well.
  • Keep adding water to form a thick batter-like consistency.
  • Mix all the ingredients well to prepare a batter. There should not be lumps in the batter.
  • Make sure the consistency of the batter is thick. Once the batter is formed, cover with a lid and keep it aside for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Heat a pan on medium flame, put 1 teaspoon oil and pour 2 tablespoons of the batter. Spread the batter in a circular motion till a thin layer is formed.
