Colorful ulam ideas to make your kid enjoy their next meal

It’s difficult to make your kid eat food during meal times, let alone eat healthier food choices. That’s why we’ve listed 3 ways to easily appeal to your child’s taste through colorful ulam ideas that are still healthy with just a touch of fun. 

Rainbow Spring Rolls

These ulam ideas that’s so cute and colorful that your kid will surely enjoy feasting on them. It’s an easy way to make mealtime fun and healthy at the same time. 

Ingredients

  • 8 spring roll wrappers

Vegetables for filling

  • 1 small red pepper
  • 1 small carrot peeled and finely grated
  • 1 small green pepper
  • 1/4 small red cabbage

For bean vermicelli

  • 100 g of Mega Prime Choices Vermicelli (Sotanghon 250g)
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • salt
  • black pepper

Directions

  • Prepare the vegetables by washing them thoroughly and then cut them into small pieces. I used the slicing blade of my food processor to finely slice the bell peppers and the red cabbage. I then used the grating blade to finely grate the peeled carrot.
  • Boil some water and add in the rice or bean vermicelli, soaking for as long as instructed on the package of your particular noodles.
  • Meanwhile, heat some extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil in a frying pan and add in a finely minced garlic clove. Once you have finished soaking the noodles, drain them and throw them into the pan with the oil and garlic. Add a bit of turmeric, salt, and pepper, and sauté all of the ingredients together for a minute or two.
  • Once you have prepared all of the colored ingredients, separate them into bowls to make it easier to put the spring rolls together.
  • Dampen a clean cotton cloth and spread it out on your counter.
  • Take a spring roll wrapper and dip it into a pan full of water for around 5 seconds. Shake off the excess water and place the wrapper onto the prepared cloth.
  • Start placing the ingredients onto the wrapper. I begin on the left side with the red peppers followed by the orange carrots, the vermicelli that has been seasoned with turmeric, the green peppers, and then ending with some red cabbage on the left side. Try to keep the ingredients in the center of the wrapper, leaving at least around an inch free on either side (and top and bottom).
  • Fold both the top and bottom of the wrapper over the ingredients, and then carefully proceed to roll up the spring roll starting from one side and pushing the ingredients into the center as you finish rolling it up. The spring roll should seal itself when you finish wrapping the clean edge over your roll.
  • Continue forming rolls with the remaining ingredients and serve immediately or store in the fridge for later.
  • Serve with the dipping sauce of your choice. I like to mix some soy sauce with a bit of lime juice and honey.
