Roti / Chapathi is something that
my kids love to eat and I try to make them more nutritious by incorporating
different vegetables and I also add some
masalas to make them more flavorful.
Here is one such recipe that can
be packed for the kids lunch box. I have used a cookie cutter to make the
parathas cute and packing the rotis in different shapes making the lunch very
Whole wheat flour- 2 cup
Methi leaves/ fenugreek leaves- a large
handful,washed and drained,roughly chopped
Grated radish-1/4 cup
Grated carrot-1/4 cup
Grated cheese as needed for the
Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- a large pinch
Salt to taste
In a bowl take the flour, methi
leaves, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, grated vegetables,salt and mix well. Let
it sit for 5 minutes .The vegetables will sweat in the meantime.Now add water
little by little and knead to a smooth and elastic dough.Add oil and knead for
a couple of minutes.
Divide the dough into golf sized
balls.Dust the work surface with flour and roll out into parathas.Place some grated cheese in the center and close it up with dough by bringing the side together.Roll it out. Use a cookie
cutter and cut the paratha to any shape you desire.[ Remove the excess dough
from the side and reuse it].Cook on a heated griddle till brown spots appear
on both sides.
Remove from heat and pack along
with a side dish of the kids choice.
Healthy dish ready to be served....
