Healthy Parathas for lunch Box(Indian Flat Bread)

My son has just started kindergarten and this new beginning is definitely a welcome change for my son.It's a little difficult for me though as i have to wake up at 5:30 am and pack lunch box for him.The first question that comes to my mind is what do i send in my T's lunch box? I did come up with some interesting ideas.Today and in my coming posts I'll share some handy tips and ideas with you.
Today's recipe is a simple yet very healthy for kids.I've used cottage cheese(Paneer),grated veggies and a combination of two healthy flours-Atta(Whole Wheat flour )and Besan(Gram flour).You can pack the parathas with the healthy chutneys and dips I've mentioned in my previous posts or simply with hung curd.
Ingredients
Whole wheat floue(Atta)-2 cups
Gram flour-1/2 cups
Grated carrots-1
Green chilli finely chopped-1
Chopped Spinach leaves-1/2 bunch
Boiled potato-1 medium
cottage cheese grated(Paneer)-1/2 cup
Curd-1/4 cups
Salt to taste
Water-1/4 cups

Method
-Take a big bowl and mix all the above ingredients together and add water slowly and knead it to make a nice soft dough.
-Cover the dough with a cling wrap and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
-Take 1 cup of atta(whole wheat flour) and keep it aside.
-Take a small portion of the dough and make a small round ball with your hand and press it a little.
-Put this flattened dough on the atta that you have kept aside.Coat both sides with atta.
-Put the coated dough on a flat surface and roll it with a roll pin.Spread the dough to make a nice round paratha.
-Heat a flat pan and put the roti and cook it till both sides and properly done.
-Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil/olive/ghee and turn the paratha on both sides.
-Place it on an aluminum foil.Similarly,prepare parathas from the rest of the dough and pack them in an aluminum foil.
-Serve with chutneys,dips or with hung curd.

My Notes
** You can use shredded cabbage,grated cauliflower,radish,bottle gourd and onions
** Adding fenugreek leaves also gives a nice taste to the paratha.
** You can cut the parathas into triangles and squares to make it more appealing to kids.
