My husband love parathas and I keep experimenting with different types and flavours. The common flavours which we often have on regular basis are here:
This time I decided to try a flavourful paratha hence trying this simple and easy Masala Paratha. Paratha itself is so flavourful you may not need any side dish to have this. If you are finding a shortcut way of making tasty dinner or brunch, you can try this Masala Paratha. This paratha is going to be on our regular list from now onwards.
Whole wheat flour - 1½ cups
Red chili powder - 1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - ½ teaspoon
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Carom seeds (Ajwain) - ½ teaspoon
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tablespoons + more for frying paratha
Coriander leaves - ¼ cup, chopped finely (Optional)
1. Take whole wheat flour (atta) in a bowl. Now add all the spices into it and mix them well. If you want , you can add the chopped coriander leaves.
2. Add 2 tablespoons of oil into the mixture. Now add required water and knead a smooth dough. Allow the dough to rest for at least half an hour covering the dough with a damp cloth.
3. Now divide the dough into equal sized balls. Roll each ball into round circle or you can give any shape as per your wish. I have made square shapes.
4. Heat a skillet and fry each parathas brushing with little oil. Serve with any side dish or just with pickle.
