As our little babies grow up into a toddler , they turn to be a very fussy & choosy eaters.  But there is no way we mothers can compromise on their nutrition & health in their growing years. This way or that way we mothers are experts in playing hide n seek with our kids. We give their not so favorite vegetables & fruits  to them , by hiding them in some amazingly yummy recipes. one of these recipes I will share with you today.

My son is a choosy eater. He does not like to eat vegetable in the form of daily sabjis. So I tried out this recipe which fulfilled my intention of giving nutrition hidden in vegetables to my son , & simultaneously gave pleasure to his palate.


  •  Suji 
  • Curd
  • Grated Vegetables preferably Carrot, Capsicum , beans
  • Chopped Onion
  • Chopped Coriander

Preparation Time :- Half day ( The batter needs to be fermented

Cooking time :- 5 minutes

Course:- Breakfast, Evening Snacks


  • Mix the Suji & Curd. The quantity of the curd added depends on the consistency of the batter. The batter should be thick like the batter of Idli.
  • Set aside for at least 6 hrs.
  • When the batter becomes light,, add chopped vegetables, chopped onion & chopped coriander to it.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • To make it light further & to make it rise , you may add a pinch of salt.
  • Apply oil to each mold in the Appam pan.
  • Put a spoon full of the batter in each mold & cover it with the lid.
  • Keep the flame low.
  • After a minute or two, Open the lid & toss the Appams
