Cabbage and Carrot Paratha on Jagruti's blog recently and I knew I will be making it soon! Only thing was when I was ready to make it, I didn't have my computer handy to see how to make, so I went ahead in my own way...
Sorry Jagruti, next time I will try to keep my computer handy!
I am a very big fan to stuffed or regular parathas, the reason being my kids will eat up their veggies without being fussy! yayyyy!!...isn't this what every Mom want or prefer...
With my fussy kids...I am always trying to get them eat up their veggies! This is a perfect way if your kids love parathas.
We all enjoyed them with Tomato Choka and it tasted great!
This is not a stuffed paratha, but what I call a regular paratha. Here the veggies are mixed directly into the roti dough along with any spices and rolled out as paratha.
Any veggie can be used and any spice can be added to bring out yummy flavors.
I used Cabbage and carrot this time after being reminded that I had them in my refrigerator. :)
1 cup grated or chopped Cabbage
1 cup grated carrot
salt ot taste
1 tbsp oil
pinch of turmeric
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp jeera powder
enought chapathi flour, atta, whole wheat flour to knead into a soft dough
Add salt to the grated cabbage and keep aside for 10 minutes.
You will see that water will come out of the cabbage.
Add the carrot, oil, turmeric, coriander powder, jeera powder.
Add some more salt if required.
Add enough atta to knead into a soft dough. Keep aside to 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, if you think the dough has become too soft, add some more atta and knead well.
Make into small balls and roll out the paratha. Heat a tava / tawa, and slowly fry the paratha. Should be on medium heat so as to allow the carrot and cabbage to cook.
Flip over after browning on one side. Lightly oil both sides before removing from the tava.
Serve hot with any curry or even plain yogurt. Enjoy!!!
