Not all children eat vegetables easily, and moms are always at a loss of ways to hide this nutritious food group into the child’s meals!

Vegetable Parathas are a delicious way to do this. Your baby will enjoy the mild, soothing flavour derived from apt spice powders, and the easily chewable texture, thanks to the addition of curds.

Carrot and fenugreek leaves make this dish rich in vitamin A, which is extremely important for healthy vision. Serve these yummy parathas for breakfast, at the start of your baby’s busy day, or during lunch time when she takes a break from ‘play’.
