Nutrition Pack Parathas

Ojas these days is in a state where he wants to eat everything on his own, so I am trying to innovate in foods which he can eat on his own... the top of the list is Paranthas... here is one I figured out and everyone loved

1.5 cup atta (use whole wheat or I used the pillsbury multi grain atta)
1/2 cup sweet corn kernel parboiled and crushed
1/2 onion chopped
1 bunch palak leaves chopped
1 bunch methi leaves chopped
1/2 tsp ajwain seeds
1 tsp oil
salt to taste
pinch of red chilli powder
some mozzarella cheese
u can add green chillies if kids are not eating

1. Knead all ingredients apart from cheese together to make dough
2. With the dough roll out small chapathi and stuff with cheese
3.fold and roll again
4. fry both sides using oil/ghee or butter whatever ur child prefers

serve with curd

this is very good dish for the dieting people too, just avoid the cheese and fry without oil...

A good substitute for the mozzarella is plain crushed paneer ... Avoids the high fat AND the high salt content AND all the additives that go into making and preserving processed cheese .. You don't really have access to fresh mozzarella here.
