Nutella Paranthas- Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to all the kids and best of luck to their moms.

Childrens Vacation Mothers Worry Time. I know there are many moms who get worried so easily when their kids' vacations starts. Likewhat Mini (my friend) said 'From today onwards, for three weeks its gonna be  Entertainment, Entertainment & Entertainment'. haha.. But I love vacations. There's a lot that we Moms can plan to make their holidays educative, fun and memorable ones. Cartoons or movies is just not the one and only thing to keep them busy.


 I choose some themes for every holidays to keep them engaged and learn a new thing. This time, it's HYGIENE. And our motto is 'For Health to be Bright, Hygiene should be Right' . Google is my best companion who helps me out in doing this successfully through printouts of posters, tips and youtube educational videos.
 

Kids often show up hungry during holidays. They need something to crack every now and then. Either keep them busy or they'll find something to keep me busy. :) .  The holidays mean yummy, festive treats for them. They wake up demanding some awesome breakfast to start their day with and seems lazy to eat the regular stuffs which they used to have from their schools in packed boxes. They like to help us in kitchen to prepare some. Here is one such breakfast dish (inspired from Masterchef) which I'm sure they would like rolling, folding and spreading out nutellas and the more they would enjoy eating that. My kids enjoy every bite of it and hope yours too..

Ingredients:

Flour 1/2 kg
Ghee 35gm
Nuts (Cashews/almonds or any ) 1 to 2 tbsp
Nutella 2 tbsp ,heaped
Oil 1 tbsp
Butter 1 tbsp







Method:

Combine the flour with enough salt and ghee. Mix in just enough water to knead the mixture to a smooth firm dough. Cover the dough with a moist muslin and kepp aside to rest for 25 minutes.

2. Dry roast the nuts , turning constantly till cashews turn golden. Cool and break them into fine chunks or powder them.

3. In a samll mixing bowl, combine the nutella with powdered nuts and melted butter. Mix very well and refrigerate the mixture until firm.

4. Divide the dough into 6 balls, roll each out into a round paratha. Apply melted ghee on each paratha, fold it into a semi-circle, apply some more ghee on one side of the paratha and fold it again into a cone shape. Roll out into a triangular shape paratha.

5. Heat a tawa and roast the parathas partly basting lightly with oil. When on the tawa/pan, separate a layer of each partially cooked paratha making sure to leave it intact on the two sides, fill in the nutella mixture, seal and cook the paratha completely. You can do this on your kitchen counter also . Just take this off from the pan and then return it after filling the nutella mixture.

6.Serve hot.
