Hariyali Paratha


First of all, I have news to share with all of you. I and my DH blessed with baby boy last month.. This will explain my prolonged absence from blog world. I hope to resume to active duty with this new blog entry. So lets us get to it right away.

This is healthy and flavor-full paratha recipe, however the taste is very different from regular paratha. The Green and Pigeon peas together make it a unique in texture, color, and taste. The texture is very soft, the color is green with tinge of regular parathas.

Ingredients:-


  • 2 cups Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Pigeon Peas, boiled
  • 1/2 cup Green Peas, boiled
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro and Mint
  • 3-4 Green Chilli
  • 1 Small peace of Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Dhania-Jeera Powder
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Pinch of Asotida
  • Salt to taste

Method:-

1. Mix Pigeon peas, green peas, cilantro, mint, ginger, green chilli, dhania-jeera powder, asefotida, salt and lemon juice in blender to make it a puree.

2. Mix all the ingredients into the large bowl.

3. Knead the soft dough using little water. Keep aside for 1 hour.

4. Make lemon-sized balls from the dough.

5. Roll them with rolling pin.

6. Heat non stick skillet on medium-high heat.

7. Cook paratha on hot non-stick skillet.

8. Flip the thepla after one side is cooked a little bit, apply little oil on it.

9. Then flip to the other side and apply little more oil on that side, cook both sides until cooked.

Enjoy...

Tip: Use cooking spray to control the amount of oil which goes into it.
