Burger, Pizza's are everyones favorite. Specially kids go crazy for these junk foods. My little one loves chicken popcorn and demands it often. I too crave for burger often. Since these junk foods are not good for health, i try to stay away from it. Most of the time i make it at home for my little one. Somedays i turn potatoes into popcorn chicken and try to cheat my little one. There are days when she don't even finds it. Someday's i get on a mission and try to replicate those popular fast food recipes.
Few days back i wanted to create mcdonald's mcaloo tikki burger which i am seeing all over internet. It is pretty easy to make and taste amazing. This burger was so good and it turned out super crispy. This recipe is a great recipe for your kids party and it can be put in your kids lunch box as well.
I loved this recipe because it is made at home and you exactly know what ingredients you are adding and the quality of the ingredients. All the ingredients are fresh and you know it is good for your kids. Making these kind of fast food recipes at home is best because you are not giving your kids preservatives instead whole foods.
