AVOCADO PARATHA WITH SPINACH AND MINT (PREPARATION TIME:20 MINUTES, MAKES:6-7)
Growing kids are always hungry for snack, right? We mom's struggle to find healthy snacking options for kids. For me it's always been a combination of fruits, yogurt, cheese sticks, sandwiches and our good old Indian Paratha.
I would say paratha is my favorite, because I can sneak in many veggies, even the ones they don't like ;) also they are definitely healthy and filling. This one has been a hit with my girls.
Avocado, 1 small
Spinach, 1/2 cup washed and finely chopped (optional)
Mint leaves, 8-10, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Red chili powder, 1/4 tsp
Whole wheat flour, about 1 cup
Water, about 1/4 cup, or little more
Mix the spinach and mint leaves, along with the spices in the flour, add mashed avocado and combine into a dough, add water as needed to form a medium firm dough (it tends to get a little soggy if you plan to use it later).
Divide the dough in small balls, dust with dry flour, roll into disc shape and cook on a pan/tawa with ghee.
