Hummus and pita bread, veggies, fruit
Hummus : Soak for few hours and Cook the garbanzo beans (chole) in pressure cooker for few minutes. Blend all the ingredients in a blender - For 2 cups of cooked beans add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (tahini paste), salt, cilantro (coriander) [little flaxmeal and very little garlic optional], and some water. Refrigerate and enjoy for a week.
Whole wheat pita bread : [whole wheat bread/ bhakri (thick bread made from Jawar,Rice,Millet flour)/ Naan - tastes good with hummus].
Vegetables : Broccolli and celery with Ranch drops. [vegetables washed with hot water]
and some grapes.
Kids love to spread by themselves while eating but for younger kids you can spread hummus in between pita bread.
