Mixed Vegetable Paratha




Busy with a few things going on here....trying to find time to write a post and blog hop, but very rarely getting a chance to do so.
During one such day I made this vegetable paratha. I find stuffed parathas are so easy to make and to get kids to eat it. Also I don't have to worry about cooking any extra curry or if they are getting enough veggies for that meal. At least for this reason I should try making chicken stuffed parathas....I am sure they would be soo yumm!!
I do add some coriander and jeera powder to make them flavorful and enjoyable, and even spicy too. My kids have no problem with the spiciness I make and we also enjoy spicy food. Well if you prefer not so spicy food, add the ingredients accordingly and make it to your taste.

Ingredients:

3 cup of dough, kneaded along with salt and oil with water to make a soft pilable dough.

1 small potato, boiled or baked in microwave, peeled and mashed
half cup broccoli florets, boiled to soft  in MW, mashed
half cup carrots, cooked soft in MW, mashed
half cup peas, cooked soft in MW
You can add any other vegetables if wish, cook to soft and mash.

1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp chilli powder (more or less)
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
salt to taste
few chopped coriander leaves

oil to fry the paratha.

Method:

Knead dough to a soft pilable dough and keep aside for 20 minutes.

Cook veggies to soft and mash.
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and keep aside.
Make a cup like shape with a small piece of dough, add the filling and close.
Roll out into a round paratha and fry on the tawa until both sides get brown dots. Sprinkle oil on both sides and fry for a few seconds more.
Serve hot with raita, chutney or curry.
Enjoy!!!
