Whole Wheat, Oats, and Ragi Parathas with Stuffed Vegetables

Whole Wheat, Oats, and Ragi Parathas with Stuffed Vegetables
Paromita is one of MumMumTime's oldest readers. I remember, she had commented on my curd rice recipe saying her kids had liked it. After that we have interacted on Facebook on and off. Recently, she posted a pic of really different looking parathas on my Facebook page. The parathas looked so interesting and sounded super healthy that I thought a lot of moms would love to know the recipe. I asked Paromita for the recipe and also a brief intro about herself, so other moms could get to know her better. She very sweetly obliged. So without further ado, over to Paromita.

Coriander Cheese Paratha Recipe

It takes tremendous amount of patience to get kids to eat the things you want them to eat. That's one thing motherhood has taught me--you just have to keep trying. I have wanted Devansh to eat cheese and coriander for the longest time. Devansh has only started liking cheese for the past 6-7 months now. I had first tried giving it to him when he was around 10 or 11 months old. He wasn't able to digest it properly then and he threw up. I didn't give it to him for the next 5-6 months after that. Afterwards whenever I did, he never liked it. But these days he loves cheese, not by itself but when it's added to something.

Chaas Masala Recipe

We use chaas masala made by my mom-in-law on a daily basis. At lunch, Devansh and I have curd with chaas masala added to it. And then for dinner, we have chaas (buttermilk) with this masala added. I sometimes apply it to apples and give it to Devansh, if he's being fussy about eating apples. This masala tastes yummy when added to dahi wada as well. I doubt if I would be using this masala so frequently in Devansh's food if it was readymade. I am glad I can use it bindaas because my MIL makes it for us.

Personalized Gifts by Perfico - Review & Giveaway



Happiness is when your near and dear ones love your gifts.

Selecting gifts is so much fun: looking for options, shortlisting a few, weighing the pros and cons of each before finally zeroing in on that one perfect gift to suit the occasion—birthday, house warming, anniversary, naming ceremonies, Raksha Bandhan to name a few. I like adding a personal touch to my gifts but I am not a very arty/crafty person, good at creating stuff. That’s why I love this whole new wave of personalized gifting. 

I came across Perfico’s name in one of mommy forums where we were discussing personalized gifting options for Raksha Bandhan, which is just around the corner. One mom said she’d shopped with them many-a-times and was really happy with their products. That piqued my interest. I browsed through their products, liked what I saw, and contacted them for a review. They said they would love to giveaway one product of my choice to my readers. You want to know which one? You'll have to read my review first. I won't bore you with unnecessary words I promise, I'll let the products do the talking. :-)

Tadke Wali Roti with a Fruit and Veggie Twist (Phodnichi Poli)

Waking up Devansh at 7:30 in the morning for his school is a huge struggle. Luckily I don't have to send tiffin with him as they serve food at the nursery he goes to. But if I had to give him tiffin, I am sure I'd be packing phodnichi poli in his lunch box pretty often. It's one of the few homemade dry foods Devansh likes. If we're going out someplace and I need to carry his snack, phodnichi poli is one of my top preferences. I don't add veggies or pomegranate at that time of course. This prevents it from getting spoiled for a long time.
