VEGGIE POWER PARATHA
WHAT YOU NEED
– 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
– 1 tablespoon ragi flour (if you can get your hands on sprouted ragi flour, even better)
– 1/2 carrot (grated) – 1/4th boiled beetroot (grated)
– 1/4 small bowl pumpkin (grated)
– 3-4 Spinach leaves (finely chopped)
– 50 grams Paneer
– 1 teaspoon mixed dry fruit powder
– Ajwain – White sesame seeds
– Salt to taste
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
1. In a bowl add in the whole wheat flour, ragi flour along with all the grated vegetables and chopped spinach. Mix with a spoon.
2. To the above mixture add the dry fruit powder, sesame seeds, ajwain, salt to taste.
3. Crumble the paneer and add it to the mixture. Add a teaspoon of ghee and knead the dough using the paneer and ghee itself. Add water only if needed.
4. Set aside the dough for 10-15 minutes and roll it into parathas and cook it on the pan with ghee.
5. Serve warm with a side of curd/dal/cheese spread.
It works as a great option for breakfast and can be a meal in itself when served with a portion of vegetables or dal.
To encourage self-feeding cut the paratha into strips. Because it looks so colorful, toddlers especially enjoy it!
- Use Paneer for babies 6 months onwards.
- If you do not have paneer, you can knead the dough in some fresh curd (can be used for babies 6 months+) or a little milk (can be used for cooking in small quantities for babies 10 months+).
- Ragi flour can be replaced with bajra/ jowari/ oat/ amarnath or whole wheat flour can be used as it is too.
- Salt to be used for babies above 1 year.
We will be sharing many more innovative recipes for kids.
