A quick fix meal for dinner or lunch!
For the stuffing:
Shredded Cabbage and Carrot- 2 cups( I used store bought shredded cabbage and carrots)
Hing- a pinch
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder or finely minced green chilli
Garam masala powder-1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped-a handful
Ginger/Garlic grated(optional)-1/2 tsp each(or less)
For the dough:
Whole Wheat Flour-roughly 2 cups
Water as needed
Mix the flour and salt. Add water little by little and make a soft dough. Set aside.
Mix all the ingredients required to make the stuffing.
Heat oil in a pan. Fry the veggies until they become soft(2-3 minutes).
To make parathas:
Divide the dough into golf sized balls.
Lightly flour the rolling board.
Take a ball and roll out into 5 inch circle using a rolling pin.
Place 2 tbsp of the stuffing in the center.
Lift the edges and bring together in the center and press the ends well and seal it.
Flatten the ball carefully into a big circle.
Remove any filling that oozes out while rolling the dough.
Heat a griddle. Cook the parathas on both sides with ghee or oil to golden brown.
Serve with raitha/yogurt/pickle.
