Carrot Stuffed Paratha
Carrot is a tasty and healthy vegetable. It is used in different ways in Indian cuisine. Carrot parathas are prepared with Carrot, Wheat Flour and some spices. This is prepared in two methods. Here goes one of the methods---Carrot Stuffed Paratha.
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Serves: 3 persons
Wheat flour: 2 cups
Carrot: 1cup (grated)
Green chillies: 4 nos. (finely chopped)
Coriander powder: 1tsp
Ginger: small piece
Salt to taste
Oil to cook parathas
Take a bowl with grated carrot and sprinkle some salt on it. Keep it aside for 10 minutes. Now squeeze water from the grated carrot(keep the water and use it to the prepare the dough), add chopped green chillies, ginger and coriander powder. Keep it aside.
Take a large bowl add wheat flour and salt. Now mix the flour into a soft dough adding water. First add the water squeezed from carrot and then use plain water.
Prepare small balls with the dough. Take one ball sprinkle wheat flour on it and roll it with a rolling pin into a small circle. Take another ball and repeat the same.
On one circle grease oil and keep the carrot mixture. Place another circle on it and seal the ends.
Again roll it into a large circle.
Preheat the tava or griddle keep the paratha on it. When paratha bubbles flip it to other side with a flat spatula and add some oil to it. Cook it completely.
Serve hot with Sauce, yogurt or Raita. I prefer preparing Cucumber raita which will be the best combination.
Another method to prepare Carrot paratha will be in my next post.
