A lot of the times, I get asked if I cook separate food for my 2.5 year old. My answer is no for most of the time, except if the spice level is exceptionally high. Ever since little A was a year old, I served him the same things that we ate. Ofcourse I compromised a little on the spice level, but it was still something he could tolerate and has now acquired it. Good for me that I don’t have to worry about cooking separately for him, except that he is a texture freak guy. So good news is, now that he eats most of the things, the day he is not going to school, I pay more attention to his meals. Those are the days, where I am get him away from the regular cheerios, bagels, breads, etc which he is being served at school. So on days like these, if you ever stop by our home, you will notice that Muthiya is a very popular breakfast in our house hold.
Muthiya is very popular among the Gujarati homes in India. There are lot of variations of this one dish. Some consume it for breakfast while it can also be enjoyed as a tea time snack or use it like meatballs in a curry. I personally enjoy all variations of it and I am glad I introduced it to my son early. Its packed with veggies (of your choice) and proteins from the flours and can be steamed which makes it a super healthy item.
