This update is after rather long. This entire week I was juggling between planning for T's first Birthday 'Splash' (more on that in my next post), looking to work up my designer magic for an event and being my mommy self in general.
My next update will be a short series on 'Party Food for Toddlers'. Basically, I'll share some of the recipes I cooked up for T's party which were real simple and worked well for babies and their mums alike. Today though, I share with you the recipe for batter baked Kale chips which turned out to be excellent finger food for my toothless toddler.
This veg is a little difficult to find at the local 'bhajiwala' . I finally found some at a popular world food store. Thanks to my dear friend Nina, I learnt that Kale is extremely healthy, rich in fibre and makes fantastic chips. So naturally I couldn't wait to get my hands on some and try it out.
Heres what you need:
For the batter:
1. Whole wheat flour
2. South indian sambar powder. Very commonly used for South Indian curries too, also known asVatthakuzhambu podi
4. Garlic powder
5. Olive oil
6. A little water
7. Salt to taste
Here's what you'll need to do:
1. Wash well the Kale leaves, remove them from the rib and cut up into pieces of desired size
2. Make a batter with
3. Vatthakuzhambu podi
5. Garlic powder
6. Olive oil
7. A little water
8. Salt to taste
9. Hand coat the Kale leaves lightly with the batter
10. Place on the oven rack on a parchment or foil, make sure they're not overlapping
11. Bake on 200°C for about 15-20 mins. Check intermittently and flip over if required
12. Serve when cool
Once baked the beautiful crimped edges just crumble in the mouth and T seemed to love that sensation. A little unsure at first, he couldn't have enough of them and neither could we.
