Winters are a good time to consume nuts which have several health benefits like ;
*Rich in calories,
*Good source of vitamins and fats.
Nutritious as well as delicious to eat but most kids refuse to have them as a whole. My twinnies always request not to add nuts in porridge, cake or any rice dish.
My mom then told me this recipe which has all the goodness of nuts and kids won't be reluctant to have them when added in milk.
You just need a pan to saute, a glass jar to store and ingredients.
Almonds – 50gms
Walnut – 50gms
Pistachios – 50gms
Cashew nuts- 50gms
Pumpkin seeds -50gms
Green cardamom -10 -15 pods
Black pepper kernels – 10-15
Pinch of saffron (Kesar)
Aniseed – 1tbsp
Turmeric – 1tbsp
Rock candy or Misri -1 tbsp
1. Saute individually all nuts like cashew, walnut, pistachios, almonds and pumpkin seeds in a dry pan for a couple of minutes. Keep them aside to cool down.
2. Spices like black pepper kernels, aniseed and green cardamom need to be sauteed separately in a pan just for a couple of mins, not more as aniseed would give a very strong aroma to the powder which might not be liked by kids.
3. Grind all the nuts in a blender and then blend spices like black pepper, green cardamom, aniseed, saffron, rock candy or rock sugar (Misri) and turmeric powder.
4. Now, mix all the ingredients powder in a dry bowl and store it in a glass container or jar. You can mix the powder in hot milk and serve.
This powder can be stored easily for 6-8 weeks.
Your kids will not only love to have milk but you too will be contended to provide them with all nutrients that their growing age needs.
