On Fridays my daughter has chana, rajma or nutri in her menu and she takes all the three happily. When I forget to soak chana or rajma, nutri comes to my rescue. Nutri is so easy to make and gets readied in minutes so most of the times I deliberately forget to soak rajma or chana ?.
I like nutri, so make many dishes with it like nutri paneer, nutri matar, nutri gravy and others, but the most liked one in my family is nutri kulcha. As my daughter is very fond of nutri kulcha, so I make it frequently (kulcha not for school). When she comes back from school then I serve kulcha with nutri.
This time I wanted to make something different with nutri so instead of making my usual nutri recipes, I gave it Italian twist. I packed it in her lunch box without telling anything. I know my kids, they start grumbling before tasting a new dish. When she came back from school, was all praise for it. She wanted it in her lunch too as most of it was taken by her friends only. Since I had made it in sufficient quantity, so even after serving her in the lunch, some of it was still left.
In the evening, my son had come back from his hostel and that spoilt brat (as far as food habits are concerned, otherwise he is the best child) always wants some junk food. I had some pizza dough in my fridge. For him I made calzone with that leftover nutri. Both my kids liked it so much that they wanted it the next day also.
Calzone is a folded Italian sandwich. It is made from the bread dough/pizza dough and is stuffed with a variety of fillings either vegetarian or non vegetarian along with cheese. Traditionally tomato sauce is not added in it but is served along with it, but in my today’s recipe I have used pizza sauce in it.
Here goes the recipe…
