Sweet Horsegram Vermicelli/Inippu Kollu Sevai

Evening snacks are the one among the most important food before having the dinner. Actually Kids need to have their snacks healthy as well as filling after a long day at school. I'll try to add healthy stuffs often in my kids evening snacks, mostly I'll stick with the home made evening snacks however sometimes I'll let my kids to have their favourite junk foods for their snacks. Its quite hard to feed kids with healthy stuffs in their snacks,quite dilemma which happens also with the adults as well. My better half is not a health nut like me, he love to indulge junk foods as much as like my kids. Seriously its quite a hard task for me to feed my family members with healthy stuffs, hence i find a better way to feed them. Just mask the healthy ingredients with your usual evening snacks to feed everyone at home without their knowledge and this method works absolutely awesome. Everyone at home love vermicelli, and my H love vermicelli in anything. Obviously i opted for an healthy horse gram vermicelli for making our favourite sweet vermicelli few days back for our evening snacks.

The colour of this dish will be bit dull and dark when compared to the usual vermicelli, but trust me one cant find any difference in the taste. Kollu sevai/Horsegram vermicellis can be found easily in organic stores, i carried them from India and trying to add them whenever i plan to make a vermicelli dish. Today's recipe is a super quick snacks,which gets ready very much easily. Definitely a kid's friendly evening snacks or a party menu for kids hence this sweet horse gram sevai is going to this week's blogging marathon as i picked Kids Delight-Anniversary Party as theme..Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45.
