Amaranth Waffle

Introducing new grains is quite difficult to kids. Changing how you present food to your kid can make a big difference  to your children’s acceptance  of that food. These Amaranth Waffles are a great way to get your kids pleading for more vegetables !!

Amaranth Waffles can be used in so many ways. I love to accompany them with a variety of toppings such as

  • Hummus
  • Mint chutney
  • Tamarind chutney
  • Salad
  • Aloo bhaji
    Sambar
  • You can also use them as a Bread for sandwiches ( like i have made it ) or pop them in a lunchbox.
