As a Mother, We want our children to eat a variety of foods for good reason as it will hopefully lead to nutritious eating habits for them and stress-free cooking for us. LOL!And there are variety of vegetables that our children just would refuse to eat. Okay! forget about children, there are variety of vegetables that we ourselves don’t like to eat. For example: I may know how wonderful it is to eat carrots but somehow I just don’t the like taste of it and so on….
What to do in that case?
Adopt recipes that not only has all the desired vegetables you want them to have but also is delicious at the same time.
Remember to Remember, We are Mothers – no less than a Warrior ! We would never give up on anything that we think is good for our babies. No matter if we ourselves can’t eat some of those nutritous veggies BUT BUT we will make sure that our lil ones eat. 😄
So Here I am presenting my version of Carrot- Ajwain Paratha Recipe.
Trust me, not only my toddler enjoys these parathas but I too love eating them. Its also one of my favourites as it consumes less time to cook plus it makes a meal for me as well which means no extra cooking😄. All in all its a win win. You must try.
Carrot Ajwain( Carom Seeds) Paratha
Prep time-8 minutes
Cooking time -7 to 8 minutes
Yields – 3 Parathas
•1 cup – Multigrain Atta (flour)
•3 tbspn – Grated Carrot
•1/4 tspn – Carom seeds ( Ajwain)
•1/2 tbsp – Curd
•Salt to taste
•Ghee for cooking ( Preferably Homemade)
•Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
•Divide the dough into 3 equal portions and roll each portion into a desired shape( I generally keep changing the shape like round, triangle or square) using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
•Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each paratha, using ½ tsp of ghee, till golden brown spots appear on both the sides.
•Serve with Fresh curd.
• You can avoid adding salt if preparing these parathas for younger babies below 12 months.
•Consider steaming carrots until tender for babies below 12 months.
•I prefer using Multigrain flour. However, you can prepare it with whole wheat flour also.
•Suggest to cook the Parathas over medium heat for softer finish.
•Carrots- They are packed full of nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Calcium. Also are easy to digest.
•Carom Seeds – It helps to correct the digestive troubles. It also helps to relieve sinus, cold and congestion.It also helps to increase the appetite in kids.
