Bananas and Red Carrot Sweet Paratha

Carrots are undoubtedly one of the healthiest vegetables on earth. They come in different shapes and colors, but my daughter’s favorites are red carrots.  Red carrot is a superfood for kids, as they are loaded with a healthy component called the lycopene. It safeguards the body against free radicals and keeps the heart healthy. It is one of the healthy recipes for toddlers.

The vitamin A present in red carrots helps in maintaining healthy eyesight. If your little one is not much fond of carrots, here is a super delicious recipe which will make your fuzzy eater ask for 1 more paratha.

Bananas and Red Carrot Sweet Paratha

Ingredients

For Stuffing

  • Grated Red Carrots – 1 Cup
  • Boiled Milk – ½ Cup
  • Powdered Jaggery – ½ Cup
  • Dry Fruit Powder – 2 tablespoons
  • cardamom Powder -1 teaspoon
  • Ghee – 2 tablespoons

The Paratha

  • Whole Wheat Flour – 1 Cup
  • Salt – 1 teaspoon
  • Milk – ½ cup

 

Method To Prepare

  1. In order to make the red carrot sweet stuffing, take a heavy bottom pan preferably a wok. Add ghee and allow it to get hot, now add the grated red carrots and sauté it for 5-7 minutes in medium flame.
  2. Now add the boiled milk and let the carrots cook in low flame. The entire procedure will take usually 10-15 minutes.
  3. Once the red carrots turn mushy add the powdered jaggery and cook in low flame for another 5-7 minutes. The carrots should absorb all the water.
  4. Turn off the flame and add the cardamom powder and dry fruit power to it. Give it a quick stir. The final consistency should be semi-solid. Allow this mixture to cool in room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Let’s get started with the paratha preparation, take a large mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour and salt. Add milk gradually, you may not need a ½ cup for it. Knead it into a soft dough and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes.
  6. Take a small sized dough ball, roll it and add the red carrot stuffing in the center, seal the edges well and gently roll the ball into a thin paratha.
  7. Heat a tawa, put the stuffed paratha on it, cook both the sides until the paratha has mild brown spots on it. Don’t forget to brush some ghee on top of the paratha while switching sides.
  8. Repeat the same for remaining dough and stuffing.
  9. Serve the red carrot sweet paratha hot.

Tips

  1. You can add the roughly chopping dry fruits, but I prefer to use the dry fruit powder else rolling the paratha will be difficult.
  2. If you have regular paratha dough, you can use the same as the base for red carrot sweet paratha.
