MIXED VEGETABLE PARATHA

Stuffed Parathas are a very fulfilling meal item.They taste great on its own,no side dish required.Here i have stuffed it with grated vegetables and potatoes along with some spices.

This is my post on day 12 of RM2 .
INGREDIENTS

For Dough:-

Wheat flour - 2 cups
oil - 3-4 tbsp
cumin seeds - 2 tsp
kashmiri chilli pdr - 1 tsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
hot water - 3/4 - 1 cup
salt to taste

For Stuffing:-

Potato - 2 medium size,mashed
cauliflower - 1/2 cup,grated
carrot - 1/2 cup,grated
onion - 1 medium size,grated
gin-gar paste - 1 tsp
cumin seeds - 1 tsp
coriander pdr - 2 tsp
red chilli pdr - 1/2 tsp
garam masala - 1 tsp
curry leaves - of 1 sprig
coriander leaves - a bunch,chopped
salt

METHOD

In a bowl mix flour,salt,cumin seeds,kashmiri chilli pdr,garam masala and oil.Mix it thoroughly so that the oil is evenly distributed and the flour becomes like a wet sand.Form a well and slowly add the hot water little by little.Mix it until it forms a smooth dough.Refrigerate for an hr.

In the meantime heat some oil in a pan.Add cumin seeds.When they start to turn brown add gin-gar paste and curry leaves .Stir it for a few seconds until its raw flavor and smell disappear.Then add the grated onion.Cook it until its raw flavor disappears..Add the grated cauliflower and carrot.Add salt and let it cook for 3-4 mins.Then add the red chilli pdr,coriander pdr and garam masala and mix well.Add in the mashed potatoes.Sprinkle some water if it becomes difficult to mix.Check salt.Add the chopped coriander leaves in the end and mix.Remove from heat and let it cool.

Make small balls of the dough.Flatten it a bit.Add a spoonful of the mixture and close it.Coat it with some flour and flatten it evenly.Do not flatten it very thin like a chapathi,parathas should be thick as seen in the photos.Similarly stuff and flatten rest of the balls.Heat a tawa or griddle.Cook the parathas 3 mins per side on a medium heat.Serve hot with curd or any curry or eat it just like that.
