A healthy Paratha made using Multigrain flour and tomato puree.
We all have little fussy eaters and this paratha can be a good option for the ones who don’t like eating their salads and vegetables.
While we can make parathas by stuffing different vegetables, sometimes it is difficult to feed even those to our kids. So, I thought of making a puree and adding it to the flour.
I have used regular tomatoes here and have added green coriander and carom seeds for flavour. You can even add some finely chopped vegetables or even vegetable purees to make it tasty and healthy.
- 2 Cups Multigrain flour (You can use readymade multigrain flour or mix different flours viz. Wheat, rice, gram, etc. The total quantity should be two cups. )
- 1 Tbsp Red chilli powder
- 1 Tbsp Coriander powder
- 1 Tsp Turmeric powder
- 1 Tsp Cumin
- 1 Tsp Carom seeds (Optional. Carom seeds are spicy. So, if you are using, adjust the quantity of red chilli powder and green chilli accordingly. r)
- Salt to taste
- 2 Tbsp Chopped green coriander
- 1 Chopped green chilli (Optional. You can use only red chilli powder instead. )
- 1 Large Tomato
- Water to knead the dough
- Oil for roasting
Wash the tomato and puree it along with the skin. Keep aside.
Take the flour in a bowl and add all the spices.
Add the chopped coriander, green chilli and tomato puree to the flour and spice mixture.
Mix well and knead a soft dough. You may use a little water too, if required.
Divide the dough into 7-8 small balls. Roll out the dough into small disc shape and apply oil on half part.
Fold the disc into half and apply oil on half of this.
Fold again and roll like a regular roti.
Heat a tava and roast the paratha applying little oil on both sides. You may press the paratha a little while roasting to make it crisp.
Serve hot with your favourite dip/sauce or pickle.
