When my kids refuse to eat banana my next option would be to make either a baked goodie with it else make paniyaram. Every week I buy some banana as I like to eat a banana daily. My kids refuse to eat them when they spot any black color on its skin. So I force them to have it when the skin is fully yellow. At times some bananas will be left out fully over riped. So I make cakes/ cupcakes with it.
Masoor dal fry is another simple and easiest recipe. This can be used as gravy for hot steaming rice and as a side dish for Indian flatbread. It nearly takes less time to cook this recipe and here I have used open pot method to cook my dal other it would be even quicker if I use a pressure cooker. Just cook the dal, temper it and you are done.
