Beetroot Rice – A Colourful And Healthy Rice Dish For Kids

Beetroot rice

Serve this pretty dome of flavourful Beetroot rice to any kid with fussy eating habits and witness how delightfully he will polish the plate off in minutes!  Make a cheerful food art blending several other colours and kids will go crazy!

This is definitely a very clever way to include beetroot into your kid’s diet.  The vibrant glossy red colour, the natural sweetness of the beetroot and the most uncomplicated way of making it preserves all the goodness, flavours and colour in the dish.

What is special in this recipe is that it tastes simply the best on its own without any accompaniment.  However, I add a sliced boiled egg and scatter some poppadums when I serve it for older kids.  For little ones, just serve as uncomplicated as it is!

Diwali tuti fruiti laddoos

No Ghee Diwali Semolina/Sooji Laddoos – Tuti Fruiti For A Festive Look

Diwali Sweets

These Semolina laddoos are so easy to make; you can rustle them up just before Diwali.  I deliberately avoided ghee in this recipe, because all Diwali sweets contain ghee, the staple in making Indian sweets.

This whole process takes less than 15mins.  You can double up the amount and make a larger quantity and store in the fridge for a couple of days ahead of Diwali.

I added tuti fruiti to give it a cheerful festive look and to make them stand out from other usual sweets.  Also, kids will love the colourful look and the dainty sweetness of tuti fruiti along with the creamy taste of the laddoos.  In place of tuti fruiti, you can add butter roasted cashews, almonds or sultanas.

Wish you all a very happy Diwali!




You will need the following ingredients to make these:

Corse Semolina / Sooji1 full cup
Castor Sugar(if you are taking granulate sugar grind until smooth)1/2 cup
Milk3 tbsp
Butter2 tbsp
Salt2 pinches
Tuti Fruiti 
Cardamom powder2 pinches
Vanilla2 drops

Let’s Make :




  • In a heavy bottom pan melt butter
  • Add semolina and fry for 5 mins
  • Add sugar and stir a couple of mins
  • Mix cardamom powder, vanilla and Salt
  • Add milk gradually while mixing everything rapidly under a very low flame
  • When all comes together empty it into a bowl
  • Before it cools down, add a handful of  tuti fruiti and quickly make balls
  • Decorate with more tuti fruiti sprinkled on top
  • Keep aside for 1/2 hr and they will be ready to devour
