Vegetable Paratha - Oil Free/Ghee Free

This is very healthy paratha and easy to make. The good thing about this recipe is that there is no oil, ghee, or butter in this paratha. I used warm water for the paratha. One word of caution is that this parathas should be served hot or warm because they loose their softness quickly.


-- For Paratha Dough

2 cups Wheat Flour
1 tbsp Yogurt
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder
Salt to taste
Pinch of Black Pepper

-- For Filling

1 Big Potato or 2-3 Red Potato, boiled and grated
1 Carrot, grated
1/2 cup Green Peas, boiled
1 Small Onion, grated and squeeze water
1/4 cup Mooli, grated
1/4 cup Cauliflower boiled and mash
4 Garlic Cloves, grated
2 tbsp Mint leaves, chopped
3 tbsp Cilantro, chopped
1 tsp Green Chilli, chopped
1 tsp Pav Bhaji Masala
1/2 tsp Ginger, grated
1 tsp Cumin Powder
1 tsp Amchur
1 tsp Sugar
1/4 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Yogurt
Pinch of Asafetida
Salt to taste


-- For Paratha Dough

1. Mix all Paratha dough ingredients in bowl. Knead the dough soft with warm water.

-- For Filling

1. In other bowl, mix all filling ingredients. Taste and adjust seasoning.

-- For Paratha

1. Roll out rotis from the dough.

2. Spread vegetable filling in one roti and cover with another roti. Seal the ends.

3. Cook parathas on hot non-stick skillet.

4. Flip the paratha after one side is cooked a little bit, apply warm water with pastry brush.

5. Then flip other side and apply warm water with pastry brush, cook both sides until cooked.

6. Serve Paratha Immediately.
