Stuffed paratha for kids

These filled Indian flatbreads are a good way to experiment with spices and flavours - you only need a tiny amount of filling and it is a good way of using leftover mashed potato or cooked vegetables. Parathas can be served alongside a curry or can be eaten with dips as an alternative to sandwiches in picnics or lunchboxes.
