Healthy stuffed spinach parathas. The paneer and the carrot keeps the paratha moist. I prepared this for my kids, was scared about its freshness, But it stayed fresh for 5 hours in the tiffin, and my kids enjoyed it with ketchup.

Stuffed Spinach Paratha ( Tiffin Treats for Kids )
 on 10 Sep 12 05:01 PM

My son is 2 years old and finding difficult for me to feed him everyday as mostly we prefer to cook idly in our home. Once in a week we prefer to prepare chapati. He was talking but when we consulted the doctor he was asking us to introduce new foods and not to repeat the same. We won't give him noodles as he it is not nutritious but when he saw that he will come and ask. I was searching for different varieties of food that I could give .Also he should be able to chew it. When I checked the taradalal recipes for kids I was so attracted to it . Especially the "stuffed spinach paratha" seems to be healthy and tastier. This solves my problem for one day and my son will be having a new taste. Also I tried cooking he liked it as spinach and paneer we are adding him for the first time. My husband mostly don't like chappati he also taken the parathas and appreciated me. Thanks for taradalal for this recipe.
