My year and a half old daughter is one of the very fussy eaters I know of. Seems as if nothing pleases her palate that easily. She has simple conditions, food should not stick to her fingers and she should be able to control what she eats and how much she eats, by only feeding herself from her own tiny hand.
After much resistance from her, I finally figured that she likes anything similar to Chapatis. Now, she likes only chapatis and nothing along with it. So I had to find a way to sneak in the good vegetables. Using all my creativity to sneak in all the possible nutritious items in a single meal, I came up with this new recipe. It’s original and guess what? my toddler liked it and better yet, my husband loved it too.
I am sure all those of you with a tiny picky eater can totally empathise with me and you’ll be happy to find a new nutritious food that your toddler too will love!
Things you’ll need:
- 2 cups 100% whole wheat flour

How it’s done:
