I like the idea of paratha simply because they can be filled with a vegetable(s) that flavours and adds so much nutrition to the dish so well. For kids, feeding a separate curry might or might not work with plain Roti's and we as parents always wonder if they have eaten enough vegetables.
That is exactly why, these radish parathas are made. You can ensure that enough radish goes in with each paratha, as they are all premixed into it while making the dough. They can be served as small pieces with curd to promote baby led weaning, or help your kids engage in eating independently.
Total Time To Make 4-5 Parathas - 30 Mins
Radish - 2-3
Whole Wheat Flour - 3 Cups
Turmeric - 1/2 Tsp
Ginger - 1/2 Tsp (Grated)
Pepper or Chilli Powder - 1/4 Tsp
Oil - 3-4 Tsp
Lemon Juice/Amla Powder - To get a slight saltiness
P.S You can buy organic sun-dried amla powder from our store. Check out.
Method to Make the Dough:
1. Wash, Peel and Grate the radishes
2. Take a broad bowl to knead the atta dough. Add Wheat Flour, Grated Radish and all the other spices and oil of your choice.
3. While grating radish, a lot of its water content comes out. Do add it back to the dough and knead it well with some water and oil.
4. Rest the dough for 10-15 mins
Method to Make Parathas:
1. Make equal sized balls using the dough
2. Roll out to parathas. Dust it with flour while rolling the paratha, so you can make them as thin as possible.
3. Heat the tawa and cook on both sides, till you get some light brown spots on each side.
4. Ensure to heat on a medium flame. If you add oil, do not let it smoke. When oil smokes it means that the oil is being heated to a very high temperature
after which its texture/composition changes to something toxic. This should be specially avoided for kids.
5. Serve warm with curd
6. Make small pieces of this paratha for baby lead weaning. Keep the cup of curd aside and show your kids to relish the dish by dipping and chewing up :-)
