I fried the cashew nuts separately and added to poha for my other twin. Luckily both of them liked it very much and they ate fully which made me very happy. I am sending this dish to Srivalli's Kids Delight Event along with another dish and few art work by my girls.Another dish which I would like to send for the event is the Kids friendly chapathi which is a very big hit in my family and many of my friends here are still following the same recipe to make their kids eat chapathi/roti.
Kids Friendly Chapathi
This is a heart made by one of my twin. I got my wisdom tooth extracted few months back and both the kids were so co-operative and they didn't any trouble to my husband(except they started asking "when is amma gonna cook"? after eating his rasam for two days). Last week I had my dentist check up and this little one assumed that I am going to have another surgery. So she made this heart by herself. She took a single side white sheet from our printer and drew a heart and cut it and colored it and made some decorations in it. I was really impressed by this and was very happy to see this heart which she gave it to me after I came back from the check up.
This is another art work by the other one. She made this maracus and call it "shake-a-shake-a-boom-boom". I really have no idea why she named it like that. Most of you know that I do beading work. I keep some of the defected beads or broken beads in a separate box so that I could use those for some other art work. Last sunday I was busy cooking for our guest and these two were busy watching some cartoon(thats what I assumed actually). This one came to me and asked for two empty yogurt box and I gave her and told her not to disturb me for another 30 mts. Within few minutes I heard the beads rolling in my living room and as usual I came out from the kitchen screaming(lol). I saw she had the box full of defected beads and she said she want to sort them and she also promised me that she will clean up the hall. I was ok with that and I went inside. But after 10 minutes, she came inside with this maracus saying "amma I made shake a shake a boom boom with your beads". I was really surprised and was very proud.
All the above given recipes and the art work goes to SriValli's Kids Delight Event.
