Paneer paratha recipe – Kids lunch box recipes

       We love paneer and parathas with paneer has become by son’s favourite  when I made this a couple of days ago.He asks me to make this quite often. Its actually quite easy to make , filling and healthy too. Now as the school starts, I am often in a fix what to give in the lunch box. Parathas does makes the best school lunch box recipe. You can even cut them to triangles making it easy for your kids to eat. Place them in the lunch box wrapping them in aluminium foil or a tissue paper so that it doesn’t get soggy and remains slightly warm.

     In this recipe, I also added some grated carrots for more nutrition. Its your choice, you can omit if you do not want them in your stuffed parathas.But my son loved it that way.
