Ask any mother and she will speak on behalf of all the mothers and tell their tale of woe when it comes to feeding children. Kids are super picky and super fussy about what they eat and it can be a task to prepare something that gets them excited about eating it. You can cook the tastiest of curries and luscious parathas, but there's just no pleasing them. Give them roti or paranthas and you might get the plate back with the food untouched. This is just their way or revolting and reminding that they need something better, something more delicious. You rattle your brains but don't know what to do with the leftover parantha and end up throwing it away. Right?
Nobody likes wastage of food. Cooking something else hurriedly for the kids is another problem at hand. What if you can prepare something in minutes that your kids will love and also don't let the paranthas go waste? Yes, it is possible! You can now send back the plate of the same food to your children, but, with a twist. Use those very paranthas rejected by the kids and transform them into a food that is absolutely loved by them. We are talking about pizza!
