CARROT PARATHAS


I have tried out parathas stuffed with grated carrots instead of radish for a change. No one at home is actually fond of this vegetable. So I try to add grated carrots to various dishes like soups, koftas..etc.

Ingredients:
Carrots ..... 1 (grated)
Wheat flour.. as needed
Ajwain........... 1/4 tsp
Green chillies ... 1 chipped finely
Coriander leaves ... handful
Turmeric powder ... 1/8 tsp.
Red chilli powder .. 1/4 tsp.
Cumin powder... 1/2 tsp
Salt ..... to taste
Oil or Ghee

Method:

 Knead dough for 4-5 parathas adding a little oil or ghee, ajwain and salt.











Grate the carrot and add a little salt and set aside for 5-10 minutes. Squeeze out the water from the carrot completely. ( you can even use this water for kneading the dough)



Mix the chillies, turmeric, cumin powder and coriander leaves.









Roll out a roti and spoon a little filling in it.





Seal the edges and make a bundle.








Roll it out again carefully.









 Roast on a griddle applying a little ghee or oil.







Serve hot with curd and pickle.
