Have you ever tried these parathas?

I bet you havent tried them yet. These are just like normal parathas but with an unusual stuffing i.e. Rice flour ;-) Imagine rice flour stuffed in wheat flour parathas!!! So here is the recipe:

Ingredients for Dough:
1 1/2 cup wheat flour
water(for kneading)

Ingredients for stuffing:
2 cups Rice flour
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 Tbsp oil
2 tsp lemon juice
2 green chili
1 tsp grated ginger
2 cups water


1. In the mixing bowl, take wheat flour and add bit salt and knead it into a smooth dough using water.set it aside for 1/2 hour.
2. In a pan, heat oil, add cumin seeds, green chili, ginger and lemon juice and saute.add water. (quantity of the water should be enough to form rice flour into thick paste.you should be able to make round balls out of this paste.)
3. When water begins to boil, add rice flour and salt and mix well till rice flour forms a smooth thick paste.let it cool. stuffing is ready!

4.Make equal size balls of dough and flatten each ball using oil.

5.Take small portion of rice flour stuffing and keep it in the centre of the dough and cover it from all sides (as in aloo paratha).

6.Roll each of these balls into paratha using rolling pin.Dust with rice flour.

7.Cook paratha on both sides.

Serve hot parathas with your favourite chutney and Zucchini stir fry.
