vegetable cheese cutlets for kids recipe

It is very challenging for mothers to prepare kid’s meals that are healthy and nutritious and to get them to eat all the vegetables.

Today, I’ve got a crispy tasty cheesy vegetable disc recipe which all the kids will love. I am sure the lunch box will definitely come empty. This lip smacking recipe consists of rich nutrients of vegetables and cheese. Even the fussy kids will really enjoy this dish.

You can make it during kids party, play dates or even for the day out. According to this recipe, you can include any vegetable of your choice.

How to sneak in nutrition:

You can give a non-vegetarian twist to the dish by adding minced cooked chicken and adjust the spice as per your preference. You can always add new vegetables like red cabbages, zucchini, beans or capsicum. Adding soya chunks is also a great way to increase the nutrition value. You can also add homemade paneer or tofu to make it healthier. Use ghee instead of oil to shallow fry

When the kids ask what’s it made of tell them these contain “unidentified feeding objects”!! LOL!!!! You can even try shaping it into a real UFO with a blob on top!
