Blackeyed Peas & Raw Banana Tikkis

Kids just love deep fried snacks,but however i tried to them bit away and feed mine often with healthy snacks. Whenever i plan for healthy snacks, i'll always stick to the steamed cooked snacks or pan fried snacks. Panfried snacks goes for less oil when compared with the deep fried ones. Since my kids arent big fans of protein rich beans, i'll try to add often those nutritious beans in our menu but i'll try to keep masking them with other ingredients.One among those trials is this black eyed peas and raw banana tikkis. Actually you can add more veggies and cooked potatoes instead of raw banana but i replaced vegetables and usual cooked mashed potatoes with cooked,mashed raw banana. Both mashed raw banana and pressure cooked blackeyed peas works wonder in this tikkis. Seriously none at home noticed the addition of the blackeyed peas eventhough the tikki looked bit dull in colour.Sending to Kids's Delight - Healthy Snack Box hosted by Harini,event by Srivalli n  to Pari's Only - Gluten Free Cooking.

Serve this nutritious rich tikkis simply with ketchup or a sweet chilly sauce, am sure your kids will definitely enjoy their snacks. If you would love to feed your kids with healthy stuffs like this, i'll suggest you to start feeding them as tikkis or as fillings in between a bread slice. Seriously this works prefect even with small kids, this is how i started feeding my kids with healthy stuffs in their meal.This week's blogging marathon is going to be healthy snacks for kids and hence am posting this super healthy very delicious tikkis.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#42.
