Parathas with Tri -Colour Filling and few more awards !

Made Parathas for Breakfast after a long time. The filling was my daughter's favourite--- ingredients with the colours of Indian Flag. The filling is very delicious to eat on its own and i also relish it with hot rice or in sandwiches. 

So here goes my recipe:-

What goes----

For the Indian Flat Bread---

  • Wheat Flour - 1 cup
  • water- as required
  • Oil- little 
For the Filling:-
  • Cottage Cheese (Paneer)- 100gms
  • Carrot - 1 large
  • Cheese - 50 gms
  • Coriander leaves - a few sprigs
  • Mint leaves- little
  • Green Chillis - 2
  • Pepper Powder - to taste
  • Salt - to taste
  • Black Salt - a pinch or two


For the filling in a bowl grate the paneer, carrot n cheese. Add the finely chopped coriander n mint leaves and season it with salt, pepper, green chillis and the black salt. The black salt adds its own flavour to the filling. Also instead of paneer you can use grated tofu.

Fluff the ingredients with a fork  and they are ready for use.

Knead the flour with enough water and little oil to make in to a fine dough. Set aside
Now take a small quantity of the dough and make a small pouch to place the filling as shown

Spread it flatly using wheat flour to dust it if sticky. 

Put this spread on the shallow frying pan/ tava and cook it crispier with a few drops of ghee/butter.

Enjoy the steamy, crunchy, crispy parathas with accompaniments of your choice.

Enjoy !
