My kids love the soft buttery cookies. I got some baked cookies from my friend and my kids loved it to the core. Initially I thought it is normal shortbread cookies .

It came out too good. I refer to the recipe here.

Cheese naan recipe - Cheese naan without yeast recipe - Kids friendly recipe

My kids love naan especially Garlic Naan, Butter Naan and Cheese Naan. I have posted Garlic and Butter before. My kids were asking Cheese naan at home. Whenever I make these dishes I don't beg them to finishing their meal. They will come to table on time and finish the food without any noise. Plain cheese is my kids favourite. I have made this as stuffed Cheese naan if you prefer you can put it on top instead (but I feel that would bring you closer to Pizza)

Peanut masala chutney - Peanut masala Dip - Side dish for Idli, Dosa, Paratha

Peanut! My family goes nuts about it. My kids love the flavour of peanut. I can safely say at least 1/2 of my earning goes in buying peanut and peanut butter. During my last trip to Trichy my mum has ordered food from outside. It came with chutney. It looked bright red in color. So everyone thought it was tomato chutney but when tasted we are all pleasantly surprised by the taste of peanut in it. Needless to say we all love it! I tried to do it at home with my own guess of the ingredients. We loved it too. My version is less spicy if you want more spicier pls. increase no of chillies.

Dahi Ke Kabab - Dahi Ke Kebab - Healthy snacks - Yogurt base recipe

This dish is totally new to me. I started to see in many blogs after started blogging. I was bit skeptical about it so I kept on postponing. Finally I got courage to try this. I always  buy greek yogurt because I initially wanted to try this with greek yogurt. But decided to try with normal as I thought hanging yogurt overnight will give a sour flavour to kebab. This is mughlai specialty. I have seen versions with Paneer. I didn't add Paneer but  it is your choice. You can add 1/4 cup paneer to it. If you add Paneer reduce chana dal flour into 2 spoons. I have followed the recipe from here
