Kids friendly Chapathi & Awards!

My girls are very picky eaters and I have to think something or the other to make them eat veggies and now a days, I have to pack their lunch box. This is something which is shared by one of my aunt. I tried this with my girls' and they are eating this chapathi really well. Best part of this chapathi is, it is filled with veggies. The quantity I have used here is very less. Increase the quantity accordingly.

  1. Wheat flour - 1 small cup
  2. Salt - a pinch
  3. Sesame oil - 1 tsp
  4. Potato - 1 (if it is small or 1/2 if it is big)
  5. Carrot - 2 ( I used baby carrots)
  6. Raddish - a small piece

First pressure cook potato, carrot and raddish. Mash the veggies and add it to the wheat flour, add salt, sesame oil and required amount of water and make it soft dough like chapathi dough. Here we don't have to add more water, since the water in veggies will help us to knead the dough soft. Keep it aside for 10 mts. Make small chapathis ( I use small yogurt box lid size) and cook it on hot stove. Serve it hot to kids adding a teaspoon of melted ghee on top of it. Tomato ketchup can be a good sidedish.

Really kind of hard for me too to make my kids eat veggies so I need to make experiments where I can let them eat the stuff without a fight :)
