“All right sweets! Just one bite, it’s your favourite…”
“Honey, look at these small little green balls! Bonus! you can eat them too!”
“Okay, try this, just one spoon, just one spoon. It’s so yummyyyy!”
No Mamma! You are not alone in doing this. Every day all of us struggle to stuff their tiny frames with some nutrients. Especially when they are in school for hours. With no one to go running around, it becomes even challenging to provide them doses of instant energy. That too mouth-watering and lip-smacking.
Here are some quick-fix, all veggie, healthy tiffin ideas that I stick to:
Grate/chop all available vegetables (cauliflower, capsicum, carrot, peas etc.) And bind them with boiled potatoes and gram flour.
Fry and try! You can rarely go wrong with this!
Sauté all chopped vegetables separately. Then add them to your poha mixture or boiled bambino.
Done! It is tasty and healthy and little do they know they are eating so many veggies.
Use whole wheat, fibre or brown bread for the base. Top it up with pizza sauce, lots of mozzarella cheese and chopped veggies (so they can’t distinguish one from the other)
With this mouth-watering delicacy, they are bound to finish their meal!
Bind all finely chopped veggies with boiled potatoes and stuff it in brown, wheat or fibre bread. Add cheese, butter and ketchup for taste.
Ét voila! A delicious and quick tiffin recipe right here!
Use gram flour, water, and finely chopped veggies to make a batter. You can also add carom seed (ajwain) and garlic for added flavour.
Shallow fry/ roast on a flat pan. Serve with chutney or ketchup.
In your idli batter, just add chopped vegetables. Microwave them for 3 minutes. And roast with curry leaves and black mustard seeds (rai). Don’t forget to add ketchup or chutney in the end.
I keep alternating between these veg tiffin ideas for them. Except of course, those days of special demands.
Do share if you have any other quick and healthy recipes for these little bellies. And let me know if you want a detailed recipe for any of these.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
