Author Mukta Tikekar

Ingredients

For the dough

  • One and a half cup whole wheat flour atta
  • 1 cup oats
  • Half cup ragi flour
  • 1 cup curd
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste

For the stuffing

  • 2 cups finely chopped vegetables You can use any veggies of your choice. Paromita used carrots, capsicum, tomatoes, spring onions, white onions, mushrooms, baby corns, french beans
  • Finely chopped green chilies optional
  • Half tsp cumin seeds jeera
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic finely grated or chopped
  • 1 tsp powdered cumin seeds jeera powder
  • 1 tsp chat masala
  • 1 tsp lemon juice optional
  • Olive oil
  • Tomato ketchup optional

Instructions

  • Dry roast oats and then grind them to a powder.
  • Mix the powdered oats and other ingredients for the dough, add water as required, and knead the dough as soft as required while making a paratha.
  • Cover the dough and keep it aside.
  • Heat a nonstick pan, reduce the flame to minimum, and then add olive oil. (Olive oil heats up fast so make sure to keep the flame on low.)
  • Add cumin seeds, and when they splutter, add grated garlic.
  • Mix properly and then immediately add the chopped vegetables one-by-one. (If you are making these parathas for adults you can add more green chilies in the veggies and some ground pepper.)
  • Add powdered cumin seeds and salt, and sauté on low flame for a minute.
  • Bring the flame to medium, and then add chat masala and lemon juice. (You can also add some tomato ketchup if you want to make the stuffing a bit tangy.)
  • Mix all the ingredients and keep stirring intermittently till the vegetables get cooked.
  • Turn off heat and then transfer the vegetables to a bowl.
  • Make 10 medium-sized balls out of the dough.
  • Roll out the dough into a circle. You don't make a patti (potli) after adding the stuffing and roll it out again as is usually done while making parathas. Therefore, roll out the dough into a large circle.
  • Take around 3 tbsp of stuffing, spread it on one half of the rolled out dough, and fold the other half on top.
  • Seal the sides by making small folds along the sides.
  • Heat a tava, and cook the parathas on both sides by adding a little olive oil while cooking.
  • Repeat the procedure for the remaining dough to make around 10 parathas.
  • Serve hot with ketchup, hot sauce, raita, green chutney, or anything your kids like. (Paromita says: My daughter likes ketchup and curd. So I gave her what she wanted. My son had it without anything.)

Notes

Ingredients measure is for 10 parathas.
