Spinach contains Vitamin A and C, calcium, iron, and folate. Apart from keeping your eyes and bones healthy, spinach also improves your haemoglobin count. So, a hot soup made from this green leafy vegetable is not only a delicious and healthy monsoon food but also a great alternative to fast foods.

Steps to Prepare Spinach Soup

  1. Take about 350-400 gms of spinach and wash them well. 
  2. Chop the spinach leaves, boil them, and make a puree.
  3. Melt a teaspoon of butter in a cooking pan by heating it on a low flame. 
  4. Add the spinach puree, a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg powder, pepper, a pinch of sugar, and salt. 
  5. Add a cup of milk and boil the mixture.
  6. Remove from the stove when the soup is thick.
  7. You can garnish the soup with milk cream.

2. Bread Pakoda

While Bread Pakoda is one of the hot favourites of street food lovers, you can’t risk your children’s health by eating outside during the monsoon. But, you can prepare this delicious rainy season food for kids at home. 

Steps to Prepare Bread Pakoda

  1. Boil or steam three to four potatoes of medium size. Peel the skin after they cool off a bit. 
  2. Use a masher or your hands to mash the potatoes.
  3. Heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan. Add a teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and two chopped green chills to the heated oil.
  4. Saute them until they release the aroma. 
  5. Add the mashed potatoes to the mixture with salt and coriander leaves and mix them.
  6. You can add more vegetables and spices to the potato stuffing as per your kid’s preference.
  7. Now apply the potato stuffings over a bread slice and cover it with another slice. Repeat the process with other bread slices as well.
  8. Make a separate batter of besan, salt, and water. You can enrich the batter by adding cornstarch, turmeric, and chilli powder.
  9. Add oil to a pan and heat it. The quantity of oil should be enough to shallow fry the stuffed bread.
  10. Once the oil is hot, dip the stuffed bread in the batter and fry.
  11. Fry until both sides are crisp and golden brown.
  12. Serve with sauce or green chutney.


3. Jhaal Muri

Jhaal Muri is a famous snack from West Bengal. Jhaal means spicy, and muri means puffed rice in Bengali. It predominantly consists of puffed rice with various vegetables and spices. The best thing about this recipe is that you can customise it according to your kid's taste by experimenting with different vegetables.

Steps to prepare Jhaal Muri

  1. Take a serving of puffed rice and add chopped onion, tomatoes, cucumber, and salt to it. 
  2. Cut boiled potatoes into small cubes and add them to the mix. 
  3. Add five to six drops of mustard oil and mix with a spoon. 
  4. Add some red chilli powder, 1 or 2 chopped chillies, and the muri mix powder. 
  5. If you don’t have the muri mix powder, you can add chaat masala and roasted jeera powder. You can also skip the green chillies if your child is not used to eating spicy food. 
  6. You can add some roasted, skinned peanuts. However, this is optional. 
  7. Squeeze some lemon juice, garnish with coriander leaves, and nicely mix all the ingredients. Your Jhaal Muri is ready for eating.
