You anyways don’t feel like eating much when you have a tummy bug, or can’t smell anything, and especially with a toddler, in such circumstances, tempting her to eat anything is a herculean task.
Luckily, palak has been one of Ariana’s favorites, and I have to make it in a variety of dishes, some that look beautifully green while some that have a secret hint of it.
She takes after my father when it comes to eating a mountain of rice. And what better than to make her a nice mild, yet yummy palak rice to soothe her stomach and not annoy her about she not being able to taste anything, thanks to the guests in her little nose.
To break the monotony, or the super-healthy quality of this dish, I had to add some paneer to it. She did have a ball of a time trying to hunt for it and chomp on it with all the relish.
