Parathas make terrific toddler food since they can usually be enjoyed without parental supervision. Most babies will often hold onto a piece and nibble away while they're busy doing their own thing.

It is also a superb option for moms to hide varied ingredients inside the dough! Here, for example, the paratha uses a crunchy, tasty and nutritious filling of mixed vegetables held together with paneer and mashed green peas.

A small amount of coriander adds a herby taste and more nutrients too. Babies will surely enjoy this Paneer and Vegetable Paratha as a snack or as a full meal with curd or raita.

My sister in law has a very low spice tolerance and also she is a great health freak... therefore she loves to eat vegetables in abundance... so I made her these parathas... however with very little ghee... she loved it... so I guess this is a recipe for toddlers as well as we grown ups... well if you like the spice just add a few chopped green chillies..

Paneer goes well with green peas, carrot and beet to make a nutritious whole wheat paratha. My 5 & 10 years old daughters loved it.
