Today’s lunch box is a very simple and healthy pick for kids school lunch. Carrot kuzhi paniyaram pairing with tomato onion chutney is what i packed for lunch. I’ve used plain idli dosa batter mixed with sauteed onion, grated carrot, ginger and tempered with some seasonings.

|Paniyaram batter or Idli Dosa Batter||1 cup|
|Small onion / Pearl onion / Sambar onion||3 (finely chopped)|
|Green chili||1 (finely minced)|
|Ginger||1 teaspoon (finely chopped)|
|Grated Carrot||3 tablespoons (grated)|
|Mustard seeds||1/4 teaspoon|
|Cumin seeds||1/4 teaspoon|
|Split black gram||1/4 teaspoon|
|Curry leaves||a few (finely chopped)|
|Turmeric powder||1/8 teaspoon|
|Salt||not necessary (your batter is already salted)|
Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, split black gram, cumin seeds and curry leaves. Saute onions, green chili, ginger and grated carrot along with sprinkle of asafoetida and turmeric powder for few minutes. Add this to the batter (either paniyaram or idli dosa batter) and mix well. Heat & grease the paniyaram pan with little oil and pour a little batter in each kuzhi. Cover and cook for 2 minutes over low medium flame. Now flip to the other side and cook for another 2 minutes or until it gives a golden crust on top. Repeat the process for the rest of the batter and finish.
Packed paniyarams and chutney separately along with a cup of fresh fruits!
I made Tomato onion chutney to go with it – Here is the recipe Tomato Onion Chutney – I’ve followed this recipe for the chutney but except for the coconut.

- Make sure to cool them a bit before packing for lunch. I always use steel boxes which are safe and keep them in a thermal bag.
- Do not include coconut in the chutney if packing for school lunch, it may go rancid when packed in thermal bags.
