Veggie Paratha


Hi Friends! Its been a while since I wrote something here. Once you are out of touch, its really hard to get back to our regular routine. I would say I was also lazy to get back to my blog after a break. Anyways, getting back to work - veggie paratha! Last night I was wondering what to make for dinner, as usual. I had paneer at home. My husband is not a great fan of paneer but I like it. So i usually add it in disguised forms. Dual benefit right! ;-) Its been a while since I made parathas. So immediately thought of making parathas with some veggies in it. Its simple. You can mix any vegetable according to your requirement. I am sure many of us would have already tried it, but thought will post my version of it ;-) 

Ingredients:

For filling:
Carrot - 2 Grated
Radish - 4 ( Small red radish) grated
Onion - 1 medium chopped fine
Paneer - 3/4 cup grated
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp

For Chapathi/roti :
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Salt - to taste 
Warm water - to knead the dough
Oil - 1 tbsp

Procedure:

First, knead the flour with salt oil and water into a soft dough and keep aside. Let it rest untill we make the filling. 

In a pan heat oil and add ginger and garlic. Fry till smell fades and then add onion. Fry till translucent. 

Add grated veggies and let it cook in medium heat for about 5 min untill it becomes tender. Do not add water as they will cook in the water that radish leaves. Add salt and garam masala

Add paneer and let it mix well with the veggies. When the filling is cooked keep aside. 

Now divide the dough into 9 parts . Also divide the filling into 9 parts. I could make 9 parathas out of 2 cups of flour. 

Now take one portion of the dough and make it into a poori with 2 inches diameter. Keep the filling inside and fold it. Leave it in a plate for about 5 mins till you are done with other dough. 

Now when you are done filling, take one at a time and roll it gently to make chapathis. 

Heat a flat pan and place chapathis on it. cook it on one side untill you see small bubbles popping up. Now toss it to the other side and let it cook. Repeat the process untill the chapathi is cooked evenly on both sides. You may also add little oil or ghee to make it softer. 


Serve it with pickle or yogurt. Delicious parathas are ready in minutes.
