Bhindi Recipe | Okra Potato Recipe – Why kids love this dish.

Bhindi Recipe | Okra Potato Recipe – Why kids love this dish.

The best way to feed veggies to kids is to mix it with something. Something that is chewy and is taste neutral. That way its possible to give the mixer any flavor of your choice. The kids then enjoy the flavored chew-able object while the veggies just sneak in like ninjas. This object can be any root-based item like potatoes, tapioca, colocasia root etc. If the diet includes animal proteins then meat can also be a good mixer. Today i have a Bhindi Recipe for you based on this insight.

One of my favorites, which my mom used to prepare to sneak veggies into me when I was a kid was Potatoes. In fact, even today I don’t particularly enjoy eating just veggies. I prefer to mix it to make it more palatable. After all, eating tasty is just as important as eating healthy.

Okra is one of the healthiest greens a human can consume. Apart from the fact that’s its literally a powerhouse of fiber. It is also a nutritious food with many health benefits. It’s rich in magnesium, folate, antioxidants, and vitamin C, K1, and A. It is beneficial to pregnant women. Its also good for heart health and blood sugar control. It may even have anticancer properties.

While some may develop a taste for it, I could never manage to develop a taste for greens as such. Many of my friends ask me why I am so picky about taste since I am a vegetarian. I don’t really know how to react to that so I tell them irrespective of dietary choices, the need for good food is a need for good food . So,today I have created a Okra dish mixed in with some nicely sautéed potatoes.

You can adjust the taste to make it more spicy or less spicy. You can also add green chili or capsicum to add to the flavor.

There your ninja lady’s fingers are ready. They will use stealth to enter the oesophagus of a human and carry out their mission which is to create massive nutrition in the body. Or atleast that’s what you can tell the young ones in the house!

This can be had as a snack or can be a healthy and tasty side dish for a meal. It’s also a healthy dinner or late-night snack. The plethora of fiber ensures that you have a pleasant experience in the morning. In fact, its probably a great way to replace our diet if we cannot atleast replace our habits.
