Back with theBlogging Marathon(BM) this week with No Fire Cooking. When Valli announced BM#8, I jumped at this theme as I was planning to get my 6 year old to get me to help put together her own breakfast and some snacks for some time now . Kids , especially girls I guess have this insatiable curiousity with the kitchen and they want to help out carrying out small chores in the kitchen. With BM and through this week, I would work along with my daughter and help make and taste small no-cook dishes .. Hope you enjoy this journey as much I am looking forward to it..
In the first of this series, let’s make a simple Fruit Chaat with Honey and Nuts. Well, the best part of this series is it doesn’t even need a to – go list and most ingredients can be found easily in any pantry, and you could even substitute one or two of these that suits your palate and kiddo’s preferences. I saw this recipe in a magazine recently, and it looksed too good and easy to try it out for the Blogging Marathon.
Sending this dish to my own event – Fasting foods (Vrat ka Khaana) and also Priya’s Bookmarked Tuesdays as well as Kamalika’s event – No Fire cooking – hosting Valli’s Kid’s Delight themes. Also to Radhika’s healthy breakfastevent
