It takes little more time to make parathas, than rotis. But, if you really need a change, you have to go for it. Yesterday, when i felt boring with those rotis i usually make, thought why not make some of the parathas i know. And, made just 2 nos. each of Aloo paratha, Spiral paratha and Mooli paratha to go into my bread basket.

For the dough:
  • Wheat flour- 3 cups
  • Water
  • Salt

For aloo paratha:

  • Potato- 1 boiled
  • Onion-1/2 cup very finely chopped
  • Corriander leaves - few
  • Corriander powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt- as required

For mooli paratha:

  • Radish- 3/4 cup shredded
  • Green chillies- 2 finely chopped
  • Ginger- 1 inch piece shredded
  • Corriander leaves- few
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Corriander powder - 1/4 tsp

How to make it:

Mix the flour with water and salt into a soft dough. spread some oil on top, cover and leave it to rest for about 1 hour. Make into evenly sized balls.

Spiral parathas:

These parathas have layers on them. Roll a small ball of dough into a thin circle. Now fold it like a fan (it will look like a layered rope) and then roll them into a spiral shape. Using a rolling pin, press slightly to make it a round shape. Heat a griddle, add the rolled dough, cook on both sides with oil. Crush the parathas slightly keeping them in between tissue papers. Doing this gives them good layers. Serve hot.

Aloo paratha:

Mash the boiled potato and add all the other ingredients listed. Make into small lemon size balls. Take a ball of the dough roll it into a small circle, keep the potato ball in the middle, cover with the dough completely and roll it again into a round shape. Heat a griddle, add the rolled dough, cook on both sides with oil and serve hot with yogurt or any side dish. Usually, aloo parathas use no veggies except potatoes. I tried adding some onions to it. The taste was so good.

Mooli paratha:

Heat oil in a pan, add the shredded radish, green chillies and fry for a while. Now add the ginger, corriander leaves, turmeric powder and corriander powder. Let it cool for a while. Now take a ball of the dough, roll into a small circle, add the radish mix, cover with the dough completely and roll it again into a round shape. Heat a griddle, add the rolled dough, cook on both sides with oil and serve hot.

I made Gobi-Yogurt masala as a side dish for these parathas. Will post that recipe soon.

Earlier, I have already posted my Vegetable paratha recipe. Click here for the recipe.

Tip: Sometimes, onion when added with potato and salt gives out water. If you feel, the parathas will become messy while rolling, keep the mix in refrigerator for about 20 minutes and then use it for making the parathas.
