We are starting the third week of BM#62 with an interesting and challenging theme on Snacks for Toddlers, the theme for my Kids Delight!
While I never miss taking up to cook for my Kid's Delight Event, which is guest hosted by my buddies, this theme was really a challenge. The rule that I have for the entries is that all the submitted entries should be kid-approved. So under this theme, it was quite a challenge as my kids are no longer toddlers!
So I spent quite some time going back to my older posts done during the period my twins were toddlers. I started my blog when my twins were 7 months and it was quite a challenge during the time they entered their toddlerhood and we struggled to have enough ideas to make for them. They in fact went on regular food pretty quickly. However, we also had planned some snacks to introduce.
These simple sprouted peas and aloo tikkis are best to be given to toddlers and we also ensured it wasn't so spicy. Try this for your toddle and enjoy it!
Kindly excuse my hasty clicks, it was all done under 2 minutes as these were gobbled up so quickly! Will have to make this again for better clicks.

Sprouted Peas - 2 cups

Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Roasted Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp

How to make the Tikkis
Sprout peas and keep them ready. Boil with enough water, cool, and make a paste.
Make a paste of Coriander leaves, ginger, and green chilies. Keep it aside.
MW potatoes for 5 to 6 mins, peel skin and mash well.
Heat a nonstick pan with oil, add the cumin seeds, once it crackles, adds the green chili paste, saute well for 2 mins.
Next, add the peas paste, mix well, and cook for 5 mins or till it is nicely done. Now add the mashed potatoes and all the spice powders.
Combine everything well together and adjust spice.
Remove and cool.
Once cooled down, divide into equal balls, flatten as Tikkis and pan fry on a hot pan on both sides.
Serve as such or with ketchup.
If you are serving your toddler, reduce the spice to the child's preference else you can increase as per the kids' age.
These Kebabs harden on cooling down that it becomes a good finger food for them!
