1Kids need all types of variety food. They get easily bored of regular food. Especially when they are home evening snacks need to be special. For busy moms we always struggle to balance out the nutrition and the taste value we provide to our kids.

Vermicelli pakoda is a recipe I came across here and found it amusing. It is a rare type of pakoda that you don’t often see. So I decided to try out and it turned out to yummy. It is crispy from outside and soft from inside. It is good and quick snack for tea time.
