Mini Aloo Paratha Recipe - Finger Food Ideas for Babies

Paratha are a great food for babies. Not for little ones, i started feeding paratha when maha was 15 month. I made soft paratha and chapatis, teared it into small pieces and give her a small piece in her hand. She will slowly eat it. I make this aloo paratha for her as well. Since it is so soft she loves it so much.

For other finger food recipes, Check here.

There are so many different paratha which you can make for your baby. To make colourful paratha, add some carrot juice or beetroot juice into the wheat flour instead of water. So it is more nutritious for your baby.

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 20 to 25 mins for cooking potato / 1 to 2 mins per paratha
Makes : 3 to 4 small paratha


For Dough:
Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Salt a pinch
Water as needed

  1. This looks good but whenever i try to roll the filling comes out ...help plzz

  2. How long should the wheat flour rest?

  3. @Babe KaurThe dough should be made properly, it should be kneaded very well and rest for 30 mins. And the filling shouldn't be watery.

  4. I too have started giving my little one with parathas at a very young age. And yours mini parathas look simply mouthwatering.

  5. If i knead dough with carrot juice can i store the dough in refridgerator?

    if so how long can i store this?

  6. @AnonymousU can keep it in a air tight tupperware for 2 to 3 days.
