' Paneer' ! You name it and kids would love it. I made this easy paneer sandwich today.It is an easy, simple and kids-friendly recipe. Perfect for lunch boxes too.You can add a few more vegetables like capsicum or corn to this recipe and use the filling.With the same filling you can make chapathi rolls also. I have used a grilling sandwich toaster here. You can easily do it on a tawa on a gas stove. So what are you waiting for ??

Mexican rice is a simple tomato and lemon flavored rice with kidney beans.sometimes it is also called Spanish rice in which they use saffron for colour instead of tomatoes fully.I have tried to make it with the best ingredients available in my house.You can either use tomato puree made at home or the canned tomato puree which makes it easier and faster to cook!!

Dahi puri is a Chaat recipe made with soothing curd. It is one of our favorite chaat items, because there is sweet curd in it, which gives a soothing taste.Yes, sometimes the spice in other chaats becomes too much, so we prefer to eat Dahi puri. If you have the chutneys and a packet of puris and ready it is easy to make.You have to eat it immediately, otherwise the moisture in the chutneys and the curd will make the puris soggy.
