Kids friendly recipes...

It is very difficult to make kids happy with any kind of meals specially home-made foods. They just love to have burgers , pizza and all kinds of food what you generally not preparing at home. My kid is very picky for his foods and he doesn't like to have normal Indian food dishes every time. As he grows , I have started to learn some preparations which kids just love it and take little effort and time to prepare at home in healthier way. Here I will share with you some good and delicious kid-friendly recipes which you will like to eat too.

Simply Macaroni N Cheese :::
This was my son's most favorite food whenever he goes to restaurant but then I bought a recipe book on macaroni and cheese and I started to prepare at home fresh and with less fat contents, homemade mac n cheese is the best for him. You can use diced or chopped vegetables with this simply delicious and stomach filling recipe. A great dish for snacks and dinner too. 

Ingredients ::
one cup of elbow macaroni ,
3-4 cups of water,
one cup of shredded cheddar cheese,
2 tbsp of all purpose flour,
2 cups of skim or 2% reduced milk,
1/4 tsp of black pepper powder,
2 tbsp of butter,
1/3 cup of bread crumb for topping.

2. Melt butter in the same pan and then add all purpose flour / maida and stir in until well blended. Add salt and pepper powder.
3. Now add cheese and then milk slowly and keep on stirring to heat through on medium flame.When everything well blended then add macaroni and mix thoroughly.
4. While serving, sprinkle bread crumbs as topping. and serve hot.
For oven finish, mix milk,melted butter and flour together until well blended into a casserole and then add boiled macaroni into it and then sprinkle extra cheese onto it and bake it at 400F for 5-9 mins. Once done, sprinkle bread crumbs on the top. For a change you can use Parmesan cheese too.
