Iron Rich Multi-Vitamin Roti (Healthy Food)
Giving healthy food to my toddler is a task. She keeps removing many many visible ingredients from her food every day. And now when her school is starting from next week, I am extremely worried for her tiffin and nutrients in her food.
I try giving her many veggies and nuts but she hates them all. Loves to eat only black raisins out of all the dry fruits. Adding these dry fruits in her milkshakes is another way to provide her all the nutrition, but when it comes to tiffin recipes, a dry food item is necessary. Carrying liquids is a messy job too.
Then I tried making this roti, which is, in fact, Iron Rich Multi-Vitamin Roti as it contains all the nutritious ingredients to leverage the health benefits of a whole wheat roti.
The best thing about this roti is all the ingredients are not visible, so the kids don’t tend to remove them while eating.

Keep it aside.
Add salt and oil to the whole wheat flour mix well and add the paste/puree made with spinach, tomatoes, walnuts, carrot, and almonds.
Mix well and knead a soft dough. Add water only if required else this puree is just enough to knead the dough.
Grease the dough with little oil and keep aside for 5-10 minutes.
