Healthy And Tasty Veggie Paratha Recipe

Getting my toddler to eat different kind of foods has been quite a challenge for a me as a mom. I call my son a picky eater, because he has his preferences set and it is a challenge to get him to try a new food. I do not believe in feeding vegetables to children in disguise, but love adding a veggie twist to his meals.

Veggie Paratha was infact my mother’s way of feeding vegetables to me with a Chinese twist to a Punjabi paratha. Fortunately, my two year old loves it too. This paratha is packed with nutrition and tastes yummilicious. Here’s how you can make this paratha for your family.

Ingredients: 

carrot

Half cabbage

Capsicum

Onion

cheese

mayonnaise

Schezwan sauce

Salt

red chillie powder

Wheat flour dough for the paratha

Method

To make the stuffing paste: 

– grate half a carrot, a quarter of capsicum, and a small piece of cabbage

– finely chop an onion and mix all the vegetables in a bowl

– add a spoonful of mayonnaise, half a teaspoon of schezwan sauce, grated cheese, salt (as per taste), a tiny pinch of red chille powder/chilli flakes (according to yours child’s taste) to the bowl of veggies

– mix the ingredients well to make a paste.

To make the paratha

– take a large peice of dough made of wheat flour, and make a smooth ball

– roll the dough to make a flat circle (slightly thicker than fulka)

– place a spoonful of the stuffing in the center of the paratha and fold all the edges inwards to cover the stuffing

– Gently roll the dough full of stuffing to make a paratha. Be careful that the content does not spill out

– once the paratha is ready, cook it on a tava.

– cook the paratha on low flame to make sure the vegetables inside the paratha are cooked well.

– spread a little oil on both sides of the paratha for cooking

– Once it turns slightly golden from both sides, serve it hot to your family.

I love this paratha as much as my two year old does. I hope you enjoy preparing this recipe and savour it.
