Most of you will agree that cooking doesn't take much time but to decide what to cook takes time. Sometimes i break my head what to cook in particular what to pack kids boxes to school, be it there snack box or lunch box. And that too very picker eaters like my kids it is even more difficult to decide what to pack. My two girls have different taste and i have keep both of them in my mind when i cook. Last week i remembered making a note of pin wheel sandwich in my old recipe book. I didn't bring that book with me here but i vaguely remember the recipe,which is very easy to make and calls for very few ingredients.
Bread 2 slices
Green chutney to spread on the bread
Tomato ketchup/Red chutney to spread on the bread
Cut the edges of the bread.
Slightly wet the bread and spread it with the help of a rolling pin.
Spread green chutney on one slice and cover it with another slice.
Then spread tomato ketchup on the top and carefully roll the bread into a log.
Cut the log into pieces and serve.
My kids enjoyed this very much...For us instead of tomato ketchup i used red chutney.

This is the easiest way of making pasta and calls for very few ingredients. Since few days kids are asking me to make pasta as they eat at my friend's place. My friend told me this recipe and since then i am making this pasta very frequently.
Spiral pasta 2 cups
Kheema (minced meat)
Pasta Sauce 1 Cup
Garlic 3 pods
Salt to taste
Chicken chicken cubes 1
Onions 1 chopped finely
Boil pasta with a pinch of salt and 1 tsp of oil. Drain water and keep aside. (I followed the instruction on the pasta packet, as the boiling time of pasta differs from brand to brand and according to ones liking). I like pasta too be soft.
Take oil in a pan. Saute garlic and onions.
Add kheema and salt. Cover and cook until kheema is cooked. It took about 20 minutes for the kheema to cook for me.
Add chicken cube and saute until the cube melts.
Then add the tomato sauce.
Saute for a while and add 1/2 cup of water. Let the sauce thickens and oil starts leaving the pan.
Now add the boiled paste and mix well.
