Sheetal Kamat

I was thinking about something new yet simple for dinner yesterday. I thought of parathas as ajoy loves it.. But then I didnt want to cook something that we always eat.. So came up with this idea. Turned quite nice.

Carrot Paratha
1.5 Potato
2 Cup Grated Carrots
2.5 Cup Wheat Flour
1 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
3/4 Spoon Corriander Powder
1/4 Spoon Carom Seeds
1/2 Lemon
Salt to taste

  • Mix wheat flour, salt to taste and 2 spoons of oil.
  • Add water to it and make the dough. It shouldnt be too loose or too tight.
  • Add another couple of spoon of oil and knead well and keep aside for half an hour atleast.
  • Cook potatoes in the pressure cooker and let them cool
  • Mash the potatoes and mix with carrots
  • Add red chilli powder, salt, corriander powder, carom seeds and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Prepare the balls of small lemon size out of this mixture
  • Make same size balls from the dough and prepare the cup shape.
  • Stuff the carrot ball in the cup shape dough and close the ball. Roll the paratha
  • On medium flame, heat the tawa and cook the paratha from both sides till brown. Spread few drops of oil while its cooking.
  • When completely done apply few drops of ghee and serve with pickle and/or curd

I prefer to use only few drops of ghee at the end of cooking of paratha but if you like you can fry them in ghee itself.
