Like Pudina Paratha

  1. Paratha or stuffed paratha are sumptuous Indian flat-breads that can be relished with curd, pickle, raita or even sabji. They can be as simple as the plain paratha or something as filling as the aloo methi paratha or the paneer stuffed paratha. You can even mix together all the ingredients to prepare a delightful dough and then roll out a paratha just like we have done in the below mentioned pudina paratha recipe. Check out these suggestions to make similar parathas for breakfast or lunch : 

Method For Dough Of Pudina Paratha

  1. To make Pudina Paratha, take one fresh bunch of mint leaves. You will know the leaves are fresh when they are bright green in color and not yellow.
  2. Pick the leaves from the stems and discard the stems.
  3. Wash the leaves thoroughly to remove any dirt and dust that might be on them.
  4. Roughly chop the leaves to make it easier for blending. We will need around 2 cups of chopped mint leaves. Keep aside.
  5. Transfer them to a deep bowl. The fresh pudina enhances the flavour and aroma of the Mint Paratha but if you do not have fresh mint leaves then you can make use of dried mint leaves.
  6. For making the dough of mint paratha, add whole wheat flour to the bowl.
  7. Add oil. The addition of any type of fat oil/ghee results into softer Pudina Paratha.
  8. Add the ajwain. Crush them lightly between your palms before adding to get the most from it.
  9. Add the chilli powder. You can increase the spice factor to suit your preference.
  10. Add salt and gradually add warm water.
  11. Combine all the ingredients and knead into a soft dough.
  12. Divide the dough of Pudina Paratha into 6 equal portions.
  13. Flatten them between your palm and keep aside.

How to make Pudina Paratha

  1. For making the Pudina Paratha, roll a portion into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle using whole wheat flour for rolling
  2. Grease it evenly using a little oil. To make a restaurant style pudina paratha, you will have to roll it like a laccha paratha.
  3. Fold the 2 opposite corners of the roti towards the centre, without overlapping them.
  4. Now fold the other 2 opposite corners similarly to make a square envelope.
  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and place the rolled Pudina Paratha over it.
  6. Cook one side of the paratha till you see small bubbles on top of the paratha and the bottom portion turning slightly brown.
  7. Flip the pudina paratha and cook till it is light brown in colour.
  8. Using a little oil, cook the Pudina Paratha until you see golden brown spots on both sides. Press the Mint Parathas on the edges especially and cook completely.
  9. Once the mint paratha is cooked nicely on both sides, remove in a plate.
  10. Repeat steps 1 to 10 to make 5 more pudina parathas.
  11. Serve the Mint Parantha hot with fresh curds and pickle.

A simple recipe with minimal ingredients but tasted too good .The fresh mint leaves and ajwain really enhances the flavor. Just one query..Why is the dough kneaded with warm water?
