Stuffed Potato-Fenugreek Paratha

 

P1050172

Hi!

My kids love stuffed parathas and I have always seen them overeating whenever I serve them hot parathas and the mother in me is always pleased when my skinny kids overindulge themselves and in winter hot food is all what you want. I also make the stuffed methi/fenugreek parathas in winter which is one of the most popular recipes in my blog.

This paratha is another attempt to introduce the greens in our diet.We all love fenugreek and we adore the potatoes so thought of combining them. While I made the filling the younger one kept poking his nose in the kitchen, he was very happy to see that I mashed the potatoes and added spices to it, he realized that there’s aloo paratha coming his way. He readily went and laid the plates on the table and when he came again in the kitchen  to pick up the glasses, he was very upset to see that I mixed greens in the potato filling. I was a little dubious that he might not eat it but then he asked me again, will this taste good? I said yes, this will taste even better. True to what I said, both my kids savored the hot parathas and I had to actually stop my younger one from eating, realizing he might upset his stomach by excessive indulgence.
