Paalak Paneer Teddies

BM #13  Day 4

Children normally like to remove chunky veggies from their food,but they like colors.Thinking on those lines I used to make Paalak Paneer Parathas and they were a hit with the girls.If a paratha can be made with this combo why not rice? I have noticed children removing the greens too from their food,but with these rice they have no scope of doing that either !

1cup............... soft boiled rice
¼ cup............. pureed spinach
¼ tsp.............. roasted garlic
½..................... green chilly
2tbsp.............. grated paneer
2tbsp ..............grated cheese
 Salt to taste

Puree the spinach with roasted garlic and green chilly.
Heat little ghee /butter in a pan.
Saute’ the spinach puree in butter.
Add rice,paneer and cheese.
Stir and let simmer for a few minutes.
Put these in moulds.
Demould and place them in cup cake cases.
You could cut heart shapes from carrots with a cookie cutter.
Place these on a lettuce bed.

Kids will get their salad ,greens,protein and carbs , attractively presented  and  will finish off their lunch box  happily  and   mom’s ! They will be more than happy!!
