My Bunch of Crispy Snacks

Updated on July 24, 2016

In my writing career of six years, I have written thousands of articles in different niches. I am proud that I am a wordsmith and has the ability to express what I feel. The only thing bothering me is that being a mother, I have contributed a lot to parenting articles also, but food & recipes is the only niche that is still untouched on my end. I don't know if I will be able to provide the information to you all in a right manner as it is not my forte and still unexplored. But, I do cook food and would love to share my little experiences with you all related to cooking.

I am sure that all the mothers out there are the best cooks and make every possible effort to cook something that their kids will love to eat.

Even I love to cook, but being a mom of a kid who is very selective about his food habits, I am left with no other option but to always try something new to keep him happy.

One thing that I would love to share with you all that even after trying new things, I am not sure whether my son will eat it or not, but the only thing that I am convinced about is that he will definitely like the snacks that are crispy and leaves a long-lasting taste on his tongue.

I want to share a few of the recipes that I often make for my 5-year-old son and somewhat have a feeling that every kid on a planet will love the taste of these munchy snacks. Also, to mention that these are his favorite snack stuff.

5 stars from 1 rating of crispy rice

So here we go!

My first recipe is a snack called crispy rice( I named it). This recipe is my innovation. Once my rice got overcooked, so I meshed the entire thing in a grinder and added a little butter, salt, black pepper, cumin seeds & a pinch of asafetida to it. Then I took a plastic sheet, made a cone out of that sheet and did a small cut at its tip. Then poured the rice batter into it and sealed it from the top. After that, I pressed it hard from above so that the dough comes out and made small spiral shaped snack preparation out of it and fried it till it turned golden brown. Believe me, the experiment proved to be successful, and the luncheon came out well.

The next one is a crispy semolina potato. It is an Indian preparation, and I learned to cook it from my mother.

Semolina potatoes

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: Serves 2 people

Ingredients:

2-3 potatoes

1 teaspoon Coriander powder

1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder

1 teaspoon Ginger Garlic paste

Salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon Red chilly powder

1/4th teaspoon Dry mango powder

Semolina for outer covering

1 Tablespoon Rice powder

Coriander for garnishing

Oil for frying

Preparation

Boil potatoes and mesh them properly. Put salt, rice powder, coriander powder, ginger garlic paste, red chilly powder and dry mango powder. Make small round balls and press to a shape of a thin patty. Sprinkle little water on all the patties and cover it with semolina. Fry til golden brown. Garnish with corainder leaves and serve hot with a tomato ketchup.

The next one is a egg recipe. Almost every kid love to eat eggs and this one is a real treat for your little ones.

Ingredients

4 Eggs

2 Tablespoon Refined wheat flour

Two Teaspoons Rice flour

Salt and pepper to taste

Olive oil

Preparation

First make a dough by mixing refined wheat and rice flour by adding one tablespoon of oil and little salt. Boil two eggs and cut into very small pieces for a filling. Add salt and pepper to the filling according to taste. Take four small balls of dough and roll it to a very thin bread. Add filling to the bread and make round balls. Then roll it to a thin bread. Cover the microwave tray with butter paper. Put all the bread pieces on the microwave and brush the outer layers with raw egg. Microwave the preparation for 15 minutes. Not onliy is it tasty, but has lots of nutritional benefits.

If your kid loves the taste of egg, it is just a perfect dish for him/her to cook.

I am not a great cook, but wanted to share these three special recipes with all my readers because I feel these are delicious. So try out at home as these are easy to cook and needs little time and lots of motherly concern. The great thing is that these are less spicy and perfect for kids.
