The other day after lunch, there was a lot of leftover rice and so I asked my cook, Prema maushi to make tadka rice or “phodni cha bhaat” as we Maharashtrians call it. When I was having it as my evening snack, I offered some to Devansh and he liked it. So afer a couple of days I asked maushi to make tadka rice for Devansh. Maushi is the only person other than me who cooks for Devansh on a daily basis. Devansh has same food as us for lunch, which is cooked by maushi. By now maushi knows exactly the kind of food Devansh likes.
Devansh had his three servings of vegetables in breakfast and lunch, and so I gave him this tadka rice as his evening snack. He normally doesn’t like eating dry rice/pulao/khichdi, so I either make it slightly runny or I serve it to him with curds. So I kept a bowl of curds in Devansh’s plate just in case he didn’t want to have dry tadka rice. But to my surprise he finished an entire plate of rice just like that.
Many Maharashtrians would be aware of this recipe. It is really simple to make and doesn’t take more than five minutes of your time if you have cooked rice ready. Give this tadka rice a try; I am sure your li’l one will enjoy this.
