Kids Lunch Box Recipes Idea 5 - Chapati Noodles

Chapati Noodles & Tomato Sauce
Today is a kids favorite lunch box menu - Yes Chapathi Noodles it is!! On a casual note when I was talking to the kids in our apartment...I asked whats their favorite lunchbox menu and the common answer I got was Noodles. This made me think...what if noodles is made healthy with chapathi loaded with vegetables, am sure kids will enjoy at the same time we mothers will be happy to have packed a healthy lunch box...Agree?!

Todays Lunch Box Menu :  Chapathi Noodles, Tomato Sauce and Apple. You can even pack a cup of curd with this.

Note : I use Tupperware/Plastic containers just for pic sake as its colorful, but I am planning to pack for mittu only in stainless steel containers as I feel its more safe.

Here is the lunch box menu for today:

Chapathi Noodles
Tomato Sauce

All the veggies can be cut previous day night and refrigerated in containers. You can even make the chapathi dough and keep it ready. Usually chapati noodles is made with leftover chapathi only....But as its for kids am sure we will not have the heart to use leftover chapathi to pack, so we can make chapathi early morning and then cut them thin strips.
Chapati Noodles Preparation


  • Since all the veggies are cut and made ready previous day night itself the only main task we need to do in the morning is to make chapati and then cut them into strips. After that making noodles isn't a big deal if everything is ready.
  • Make soft chapathi / phulka only then noodles will stay soft too else by lunch time chapathi will become hard to bite.

  4. Hi Sharmi,
    Any particular reason why you prefer stainless steel over tupperware for your daughter? I'm asking coz I want to know if it is for a specific reason that could be useful for my child too.

    1. I dont prefer plastic containers for packing purpose as I feel they are not hygenic....Tupeprware is good when compared to plastic containers but still I dont want to take a chance for mittu hence I prefer silver containers :)

    2. Thanks for the clarification :)
