Musk Melon Jam

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
Fruits!!! Turn these in to juice, chutney, salad, Ice cream or JAM... Fruits are best used to make jam.. When I tried Apple Jam, it was a hit at home.But, then I forgot about it.. and never retried.
For Shivarathri, when mom bought Musk melon, I was happy to eat it. But my kids did not enjoy it much, and there was more than half of a musk melon at home. I was thinking of making juice and have it. I peeled the skin and was about to cut it into pieces to put in the juicer, suddenly I thought of making jam with it. I was not sure again as usual, but thought of trying with little quantity.
So here comes the recipe of easy jam.

Musk melon, peeled, grated - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Finely chopped almonds - 1 tbsp
Ghee - 1/2  tsp
Cinnamon powder - a pinch
Pepper powder - 1/8 tsp or less
Heat the ghee in a thick kadai, fry the almonds. Remove and keep aside.
In the same kadai, add the grated musk melon and on a medium flame, keep on cooking, when its half done, add the sugar and cook till it becomes dry. It takes lot of time as melon has more water. 
Now add the finely chopped almonds, Cinnamon powder and pepper powder. Mix well and cook for some more time. You will see the glazing. 
The jam is ready. Cool it and store it in a jar in the fridge. 
It goes very well with wheat chapati and bread. 
This one is going to

A brain child of Pari.

Simple, tasty Chapati Rolls with guessing game

Tried and tasted by Nivedita

Hi all,

(The chapati I have decorated here is only for photo purpose as I wanted to show the spreads altogether)
A very simple, tasty and easy rolls for kids. I like too. These rolls were, our (my brother Avinash and mine) favourites during school time. It was easy for my mother also.

Now I give to my daughter, but with little guessing game, and she loves to play it.

Chapatis - 6

sugar - 3 tbsp

Jaggery powdered - 3 tbsp

Peanut and dalia chutney powder -3 tbsp(Recipe in my chutney label)(If you don't have, no problem. You can use MTR READY CHUTNEY POWDER).

Ghee to apply for above.

Any jam - 3 tbsp

Butter - 1 tbsp

Chocolate spread - 3 tbsp(I use Nutella)

Cheese spread - 3 tbsp(I use Knorr cheese spread)

Take 3 chapatis on the plate.

Apply 2 tbsp ghee on each chapati.

Spread sugar on one chapati, jaggery powdered on another and chutney powder on the third.

Roll and keep ready.

These 3 rolls we used to have in childhood.

Next rolls I have added according to today's kids world.

Take 3 more chapatis on plate.

Apply butter on one chapati, and then spread jam. Spread Chocolate spread on other and cheese spread on the third one.

Roll and keep ready.

Now keep all the rolls on a big plate.

Here the guessing game starts. If you have more than one kid, its more interesting. Even your kid's friends can join.

Call the children and ask them to guess in which roll what is there. Whoever guesses correct, they will get reward.

What I do with my daughter is,
I take any three rolls, keeping in mind to make one chocolate roll in that.

I tell her to take two rolls, and if the chocolate roll is not there in that, as she loves to eat chocolate roll, all the three chapatis will disapear in to her stomach in no time. My purpose to give her chapatis without fuss is served.
I AM SENDING THIS RECIPE TO PJ'S Tasty Bites For Toddlers.

Keep smiling,
