After a long break, I am back to regular blogging. This week, I have chosen to highlight some kid friendly lunch box recipes.
I have tried these Sweet-potato-methi parathas and were an instant hit with my older one. I served these with just plain yogurt as the parathas were spicy. They are ideal for a lunch box as well.
Wheat Flour 1 1/2 cups
*Methi Leaves, chopped, boiled 1/2 cup
Sweet Potato, cooked and mashed 1 cup
Ajwain/Vaamu, crushed 1 tsp
Coriander Seeds, crushed 1 1/2 tsp
Cumin Seeds crushed 1 tsp
Ginger, grated 1/2 tsp
Garlic, grated 1/2 tsp
Salt as needed
Green Chilies, finely chopped 1 tsp (or as needed)
Warm Water to knead into a soft dough
Cooking Oil to shallow fry
*I used 1 Tbsp of Kasoori Methi instead, as I was out of time
Method Of Preparation -
In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients (except oil) and knead well with as much water as is needed.
Cover the dough for about 10-15 min while the rest of the stuff is arranged.
Make about 6-7 equal portions of the dough and roll out rotis and cook both sides on a hot griddle/tava.
I like to store the chapatis in an insulated and serve them warm and soft !
