Multi Coloured Rotis / Marbled Rotis - Day 2

 Today is the second day of  blogging marathon.As kids friendly recipes is my theme,I was scratching my head to find out some ideas.Bcoz my kid is a picky eater.I cannot go by his wish list alone.And also ,I am in a process of introducing new dishes to him.So I was thinking vigorously.At that time,saras and I  were watching a cookery show.

 In that show,Anitha Kuppusamy was preparing a multi coloured roti.Immediately ,Saras gave me the idea to prepare this dish for the kids friendly theme.At first I was hesitant in materializing her idea.But some how managed to prepare it ,with lot of interventions from rohith.He was very much attracted by the colours of the rotis.I felt the success of the roti on that moment itself.But still had some doubt,whether he will eat it or not.But to my surprise,he had the rotis without any complaints and when his dad arrived,immediately he announced that ,today's dinner is green rotis.

 I felt fully satisfied,because I was able to feed my son with all the veges and nutritions.I have taken the theme as our national flag.Orange,white and green.So for orange ,I  have taken carrot puree,for white I have taken all purpose flour and for green have taken spinach puree.The original recipe called in for red colour with tomato puree,but my tomatoes were not that much ripen.So prepared orange colour with carrot puree and a bit of orange colour.If u dont feel like adding orange colour then avoid it.Give it a try,kids will surely enjoy the colours, paralelly have the nutritions too.Older kids can co - ordinate with their mom,this preparation as a fun project too.


multi coloured rotis


Ingredients:
1.Wheat flour                    -             1/2 cup-1/2 cup
2.All purpose flour           -             3/4 cup
2.Carrot puree                   -             1/4 cup
3.Spinach puree                 -             1/4 cup
4.Salt                                 -              as rquired
5. butter                             -             for garnishing

Method:
* Take the wheat flour ,1/2 cup each in 2 different bowls.
* Take the 3/4 cup multi purpose flour ,in a separate bowl.The reason I have taken 1/4 cup more than other two cups is,maida has the tendancy to shrink.So in order to cope up with the wheat flour,I have increased 1/4 cup .
* Now add warm water and salt to the flour.
* Knead it into a soft dough and rest it aside.
* Now puree the carrot and spinach .
* Add the pureed spinach to second bowl with wheat flour and knead it to a soft dough.
* Add the  carrot puree to the third bowl of wheat flour and knead it to a soft dough,using warm water.The carrot colour will not be sufficient ,so to have fun,add a pinch of orange colour.


* Now roll all the three coloured rotis into a medium sized roti.
* Place the the orange colour roti first then,place the white roti and finally the green roti.
* Tightly,fold  it like a paper roll and cut it into equal sized balls as shown.
* Now roll the balls again into a roti as shown.
* Cook it on the tava ,without oil.Because,adding oil will discolour the rotis.
* Garnish with butter and Serve it with any chutney or curry.

Kids will surely like these type of rotis.We can add the colours according to our imagination.For example, to get a red colour roti,add tomato puree or to get a purple colour roti,add beetroot puree.Kids will surely like this colourful rotis ,and ofcourse these rotis have normal-rotis taste .I have added multi purpose flour to get a pure white colour roti,you can use normal wheat flour for a cream rotis.So wats stopping u gals,lets pat ur imagination and prepare different kind of healthy rotis for kids.
