Carrot Paratha


I am back to blogging marathon, after few months break. The theme I have selected is stuffed breads. So for the next 3 days, you are going to see some stuffed breads here. Today's recipe is Carrot Paratha. Since I wanted kids to eat it, kept it simple with less spices. They all loved it. 



What are the ingredients needed?

For the dough
Wheat flour, 2 cups
Water, 1 cup (approx)
Salt, as required
Oil, 2 teaspoon (optional)

For the stuffing
Grated Carrot, 2 cups
Turmeric powder, 1/4 teaspoon
Ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon
Chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon
Salt, as needed
Oil, 1 teaspoon


How it is made?
For the dough
  1. Combine wheat flour and salt and knead adding water little by little to form a smooth and soft dough.
  2. Add oil and knead for a minute or two.
  3. Cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for at least half an hour. 
For the stuffing
  1. Heat oil in a pan add the carrots, turmeric powder, cumin powder, chilli powder, salt and saute till the carrot is cooked. 
  2. Remove from heat and let it cool for some time. 
For the parathas
  1. Knead the dough that has been resting again for few seconds. Divide the dough to 10 equal parts.
  2. Roll the balls into small discs, Keep the stuffing and seal the edges together and roll it again to a smooth ball. Take care that the stuffing is properly covered. 
  3. Repeat the process for all the other balls.
  4. Flour the work surface, then carefully roll these prepared balls with rolling pins into parathas. 
  5. Heat tawa and cook the parathas on both side, drizzling some oil .
  6. Serve them with raitha or cilantro chutney or side dish of your choice.

  16. Delicious. Looking at this I was wondering how it would be if we filled it with gajjar/carrot halwa. It would be great right? Like a puranpoli of sorts.
