This Kids special colorful Healthy Whole Wheat Checker Board Paratha will be loved by each family members. Spinach and Beetrot are the the main and important ingredients of this paratha. I served this delicious Checker Board Paratha with Boondi Raita and pickleâ€¦ One can enjoy with cup of Tea /Coffeeâ€¦.
2-3cupWheat Flour Or as needed to knead dough with puree
3tspOil to add in dough
Oil for roasting
Wash Spinach leaves, coriander throughly . Add cumin seeds , green chillies, salt and lemon juice. Add minimum water and make a smooth puree.
Add wheat flour , salt and Oil to knead a smooth dough. Dough should not be very sticky. If it is add some more flour.. Apply some Oil on palm and knead it to make a smooth dough.
Same Way make red dough ..
knead both dough nicely ..
take same sized red and green dough and smoothen them to make balls. Roll a green and a red ball separately using wheat flour to a medium thick flatbread.
Place the two coloured flatbreads over each other and cut around the edges to give a square shape. Remove the cut edges and place them over each other.Cut equidistant strips of the rectangular flatbreads.
Remove the strips of top colour. Put one horizontal strip of green colour on the vertical strips of pink colour. Place one end of the horizontal strip under the first vertical strip and apply water on it so that they stick.
Now push the horizontal strip under the third and fifth vertical strip and stick using water. The first row gets completed this way. For the second row, stick the horizontal green strip on the first pink strip hugging the top row so that no gaps.
Now over turn the 2nd, 4th and 6th pink strip (alternate strips). Apply water on the green strip and then turn the pink strips straight over it, leaving no gaps. This way second row is completed.
Do the third row same as the first row. (alternate rows are done in similar fashion)
Do the fourth row same as the second row.
Complete the entire flatbread in the similar fashion.
Lift the flatbread gently and transfer to the griddle. Roast it on the hot griddle on both the sides using some oil, till itâ€™s cooked and light brown spots are seen.
Try to make this paratha bit spicy and tangy else it will taste like a normal paratha only. If serving to kids , adjust the spiciness accordingly.Try to stick both color dough properly while rolling, else the color square will comeout at time of roasting.
