Beets Potato Paneer Paratha / Aloo Beets Paneer Stuffed Paratha - Easy Kids Lunch Box Recipe.

Actually i started to make cutlets with beets and potatoes for Valentine special savory snack and i  made cute pink colored heart shaped cutlets and also the cutlets come out so good and i even clicked around 40-50 pictures. But due to low lighting the pictures were too bad and turned out so dark n grainy ones. I wan't upset because its an expected one since it was around 4.00 pm when i set everything to click pics. So with that doubt I kept some stuffing in the fridge to make the cutlets again in the morning but next day i changed my mind and instead of cutlets made this yummy and filling Parathas along with some crumbled paneer. There's not much cooking involved in the stuffing-beets potato paneer preparation except boiling potatoes which also requires only 15 or less time, so u can make the filling within 20 minutes.

These pink parathas are loved by my kids and its perfect for lunch box also, so plz give it a try sure ur kids will love it and ask for one more Paratha :-)
