Vegetable Pouch/MoneyBag

Vegetable Pouch is nothing but cooked veggies are stuffed inside the Pouch / Money Bag which is to be deep fried. I already posted Chinese style Vegetable Dumplings as Balls.I have started Kids Healthy Snack Idea Series from this week.

My Little Prince is ready to go school,like every mom me too having lots of happiness & worries about lunch time,Systemetic routine,enjoyment.He is a very naughty prince which i have never seen like him before but am excited to watch kids implementation & application of new ideas.Kids always know the tricks to get down mom’s anger with their cute smile.I dont know how he manage his day in a same place without making noise.Its a very big challenge to make kids interest to eat because if they see their one of the dislike ingredients immedietely said “No” to the whole dish without tasting it...I prepared this recipe often in home like spring rolls but with Wheat flour.

Two months back,my man was out of town to Muscat for a week and he bought me a food magazine(Women’s Weekly-Thai) from there.I found very good different recipes there and dont have time to try this because of shifting and all.Last week he asked weather the book is usefull for You? and i realized that he is waiting for the recipes from that book to know my interest.Finally i tried yesterday ,it tastes yummy,Surely its going to be your home favourite.The original recipe is made with Maida(like Momos) and the stuffing is Beef & Prawn.I just altered the recipe to Veggies and tried with wheat four so you can serve this Veg Pouch as kids breakfast / dinner.
