Christmas Themed Paratha
My daughter is a picky and fussy eater so I had to do something to keep her interest in the food.Trying to give small servings in frequent intervals makes it more easy for the kids, rather than forcing them to eat full meals. And making it more interesting makes things easy for us.Yesterday it was Palak Paratha dinner at my place.She as usual started saying that she don't want to eat the paratha. So I made her cut the paratha into different shapes using cookie cutters. She enjoyed and had fun cutting the paratha into different shapes and she ate it without any fuss.You can make the parathas / chaptis/ rotis in the form of unique images such as stars,animals,flowers,fun objects,themes etc...Kids will love and enjoy this.
Materials Nedded :-
Paratha / Chapati dough
Different Cookie cutters
Rolling board and Pin
Take a small ball out of dough and Very lightly flour a rolling board or clean counter surface and roll ball into a round Parathas.
Then cut it with different cookie cutters.My daughter cutted it into stars, flowers,gingerbread man,stockings,candy cane ,snowman.
Heat a griddle and fry the different shapes of parathas one at a time like this: Put a paratha on the griddle. Do the first flip when you see tiny bubbles rise on the surface of the paratha. As soon as the first flip is done, drizzle a bit of the remaining ghee on the top and spread well over the surface of the paratha. Flip again in 30 seconds and drizzle ghee on this surface too. The paratha is done when both sides are crispy and golden brown.
Christmas Themed Palak Paratha is ready to enjoy!
