Mixed Veg Paratha

Mixed Veg paratha is a healthy, tasty tiffin that donot need any side dish. Making sambar, rasam and curry daily is boresome. So  I want to make something different for our dinner. Since I had a lot of vegetables at home, veg kurma and roti is the best option. But I felt something that is very spicy at night is not good and finally end up making these parathas.  If you have a kid at home, it is very easy to make him/her eat this recipe.  They will not say NO to this and asks you for another one too. Since this recipe includes all the vegetables it is nutritious. I have added beans, carrot, potatoes and onion. You can also use green peas, cauliflower, cabbage.  When I served it to ‘K’, he liked it and said that it is completely different from normal dinner. He was surprised and happy.

  • Now add red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and mix everything together.
  • Allow it to cool for five minutes.

Paratha

  • Before making paratha divide the dough into equal parts, make big balls and arrange it on a plate. In the same way divide the stuffing into equal parts and make balls equal to dough balls. Place it on a plate.

6

  • Take one of the dough balls and spread it out with the rolling-pin as we make for roti.
  • Since we are going to make paratha the roti should be thicker than that we make for roti.

7

  • Place the stuffing in the centre of the roti.

9

 

  • First fold the roti on opposite sides and then on the other two sides. Now they appear round in shape.
  • Coat it with the wheat flour on all the sides and keep aside.

  • Follow the same step for all the balls.

  • Keeping the folded side facing downwards, spread it carefully. Take care that the stuffing donot come out.

  • Now heat the tava and drizzle some oil. Place the paratha and drizzle some ghee or oil.

  • When the paratha change in colour, it starts to puff up. You can see the brown spots on it.

  • Now turn it upside down and cook on the other side.
  • Make sure that they change in colour on both the sides.
