It was long time since i tried something new in paratha. So when yesterday i was looking out for some dish which can take corn or pudina i came across the corn paratha recipy.. I modified it to what i felt like my taste :D and here is the output.

Corn Paratha
Ingredients
1 cup Corn
1 cup Wheat flour
1/8 cup maida
1 Potato
4 Green chillies
1/4 spoon Turmeric powder
1/4 spoon ginger paste
1/4 spoon Sugar
2 spoon Corn flour
1 cup Corriander leaves
1/4 cup Pudina leaves
1 spoon Chaat masala
Salt to taste
Oil

Method
  • Mix maida, wheat flour and 1 spoon oil and make a dough for paratha. Keep aside for a while
  • Grind the corn to coarse paste
  • Cook the potato in the cooker
  • Heat around 3-4 spoon of oil in a pan
  • Add grinded green chillies, turmeric powder and ginger paste and saute
  • Add salt, sugar and corn flour and cook for a while. Keep aside
  • When corn flour mixture cools down, mix grinded corn, grated cooked potato, finely chopped corriander leaves, finely chopped pudina leaves and chaat masala
  • Take 2 balls for making paratha, and roll each of them only till cup size
  • Add the ball of above corn mixture between these two rotis and stick the sides by pressing well
  • Now roll this thick cup sized roti slowly to get the paratha
  • Cook the paratha on tawa, applying little oil

Notes
While cooking this paratha i didn't apply oil first to the tawa and cooked it on both sides partially. After this i sprinkled little oil. This made the paratha very light.
Recipe where i had read also mentioned to add 1/4 cup dried coconut to the corn mixture. But i didn't have dried coconut at home nor did it looked like my taste. But if you like you can try that as well

  3. hi Sheetal,

    i tried making the corn paratha and it turned out to be very gud :) ..only that the corn mix was too wet and so i had to dry out by heating up in a pan ...

    ur blog has too many gud recipes ..i am surely going to try some of them :) ..gud job and imust appreciate ur efforts to document these ... hope ur list keeps growing :)


  4. Thanks Sujata, glad you liked it. Reading these feebacks motivates. So do stop by the blog to provide feedback in future too.

    Did you cook corn before making paste, I used raw washed and dried corn to make coarse paste as filling..


  5. yeh, i boiled the corn before grating it ..may be tht made it wet ..i had those frozen corns ..not the dried ones
