Ingredients
Gajar parathas
For the carrots stuffing
Instructions
  1. Knead the wheat flour with salt, oil and little water to form a firm dough. Knead for 4 to 5 mins so that the resultant parathas are soft. Drizzle a little oil over the dough and keep it covered with a damp cloth for 15 minutes
  2. In a bowl prepare the stuffing.Take grated carrots, salt, chopped onions, coriander leaves, chat masala, roasted cumin powder .Mix and keep aside.We use raw carrots since they will get cooked while the paratha is cooking on the tava
  3. knead the dough again briefly and make small equal sized balls out of it
  4. Take one ball , flatten it , dust it with some flour and roll into a 3 inch diameter thick roti
  5. Place a little of the stuffing inside and roll it back again into a ball by sealing all ends
  6. Flatten the ball slightly with the rollling pin, dust in some flour and roll into a thick 6 in diameter sized paratha If you roll out the paratha too thin, the stuffing might ooze out, hence little care needs to be taken
  7. In a preheated tava, place the paratha and cook slightly on low-medium heat for a few secs
  8. Flip it over on the other side.At this stage you can add ghee over the paratha Once you see brown spots appearing, flip it again over and add ghee on the other side. Prepare the other parathas in the same way Cook on both sides until done
  9. Serve with some raita, green chutney. If you wish to relish as a full meal, a bowl of Chole would do justice to the entire meal
