Kesar Badam Mix

Kesar Badam Mix|Home Made Almond Saffron Milk Mix for babies-A fool proof non sticky recipe

Kesar Badam Mix for toddlers & kids:

The huge challenge/worry/doubt of all moms is about kid refusing cows milk .I have received a lot of queries about how can a parent can make his/her kid drink milk without any battles.My answer would prefer plain milk or instant dry fruits milk or Prefer no milk at all.Yeah..I prefer no milk at all if the kid has enough milk products on daily basis or takes other sources of calcium.I don’t force my kid to take milk.In fact, milk is only used rarely in cooking or for direct consumption at home.I stopped it way back in 2012.And none of us take coffee/tea too. But we consume all milk products like butter,ghee, cheese, paneer,curd regularly.This kesar almond mix is one of the oldest preparations at home.I made this for little one as I kept forgetting soaking almonds every night for daily consumption.I have finally come with a post on details to avoid a gooey mix when prepared at home.And you know what this is sugarless.So it is safe to use even for 6 months baby.The below procedure might seem complex but I can ensure a 100% non sticky powder which will just mix with warm milk.This will stay good even for a year if you freeze it.

peanut chikki /kadalai mittai

KADALAI MITTAI/PEANUT CHIKKI/GROUNDNUT CANDY FOR KIDS

Peanut Chikki/Kadalai Mittai:

Hello Friends! I hope all of you all keeping good. People in North India please take extra care of yourself because of the smoggy winter prevalent. There were no posts from me for the past two days because of the horrible pollution which has bombarded us. It was a real shock to the first timer like us and we are slowly finding ways and means to tackle it. I had severe eye irritation because of it irrespective of staying indoors. It is definitely not so simple as most people think. This is an alarming situation. I shall write a separate post on this because I would write several pages if I commence. Coming to today’s recipe, it is our own traditions and the most healthy snack “Kadalai Mittai/Peanut Bar/Groundnut Chikki/Groundnut Candy”.This is one of the recipes which I had been miserably failing several times and this time hubby made it perfectly. Yeah! You can call this a guest post from Kitchen King(H/O Kitchen Kathukutty). We have so keenly tried on this because we had a tough time to pick up a pure groundnut candy for our kid. By pure what do I mean? I mean the ingredients should be only “Jaggery+Water+Cardamom+Groundnut” and no glucose syrup or other artificial/refined sweeteners. You may ask me why so much of stress on this.It is because it is our regular snack. We don’t send packed snack/ready made food as our son’s snack. Peanuts/Groundnuts are so rich in protein and combining it with jaggery makes it a superfood. To know more about the benefits of groundnut refer here Continue reading “KADALAI MITTAI/PEANUT CHIKKI/GROUNDNUT CANDY FOR KIDS”

GROUNDNUT CASHEW BALLS

Nuts Laddu/Groundnuts Laddu:

Everyone in the family is so fond of groundnuts.We love it as laddu/candy/steamed/roasted/gravy/stir fry/salad. I used to make this laddu when little one was less than two years when I was scared if he would bite groundnut candy(our own kadalai mittai) and chew well. Groundnut is an excellent source of energy,protein and selenium. When we combine groundnut and jaggery it becomes a power house of iron too. I always prefer the traditional candies like groundnut candy/laddu/fried gram ladoo/sesame laddu to any other store bought cookies or candies or biscuits. You can watch a video of Dr.Sivaraman here stating the importance of our own traditional foods and highlighting the nutritional value of groundnuts. Continue reading “GROUNDNUT CASHEW BALLS”
