LABOTTA - EASY BREAKFAST RECIPE / KIDS SNACK RECIPE

EASY BREAKFAST FOR KIDS/LABOTTA

We all know that Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. But due to lack of time, many of us skip having breakfast. Here am with an easy and yummy dish to serve for breakfast. This mildly sweet dish is also best to serve as an evening snack as well. Labotta -  the name itself is interesting right?  The dough of labotta is almost similar to the dough of poratta (Indian bread). Poratta is considered as one of the favorites and popular dish of Keralites. The dough for labotta is prepared using ripe plantain and All purpose flour or maida.  But for a healthy version, you can use wheat flour instead of maida.  I paired this easy and simple dish along with thick coconut milk and sugar mixture. It tastes amazingly good even with a nice cup of tea and so it doesn't require any side dish. The addition of ripe plantain makes this dish tastier and more special. Moreover, this breakfast recipe is kids friendly and they would surely love to pack this mildly sweet dish in their snack box. Do substitute maida or All purpose flour with wheat flour and make a simple and healthy breakfast for your family.
