  1. this no onion no garlic veg paratha recipe is pretty flexible. you can add your choice of veggies. i have added following veggies: cauliflower, carrot, potato, spinach, french beans and green peas.
  2. you can make it less or more spicy.
  3. you can also add a bit of sugar if required.
  4. apart from the usual veggies, i have also added spinach. instead of spinach, you can add any other greens like amaranth or fenugreek. this a good way to include veggies in the diet for kids.

  1. Tried this for dinner last night and my 3-year-old daughter loved it. For the first time instead of just one paratha she ate 2 🙂

    • Thanks Radina. Glad to know that your daughter liked this vegetable paratha recipe so much.

  2. Hello Dassana,
    Please help in understanding one thing does steaming,pressure cooking and boiling the peas means the same ?
    As in like I boiled peas in covered pan but I found still a bite remained there which is usually not there if pressure cooked.
    Please guide.
    Thanks

    • all are different.
      – in steaming the food is dry meaning the food ingredient is kept in pan. water is taken in a vessel or a pot. the pan is kept inside in the vessel or pot. its covered and the food is steamed.
      – pressure cooking is simply adding veggies in pressure cooker along with water and then cooking them.
      – in boiling, the veggies are added with water in a pan or pot and then cooked. it can be open boiling method or the pan can be closed with a lid.

      steaming can be done in a pressure cooker also. if you do steaming, then do note that you have to steam for more time as compared to boiling or pressure cooking. steaming veggies take more time.

  3. Hello Dassana,
    One more query I do not know for tori we use what word may be ridge gourd also not sure tori is a Punjabi or Hindi word. Just wanted to know do you have tori recipe on your blog as otherwise please suggest can we cook it same way like punjabi dahi wali arbi.
    Thanks

  4. Hello Dassana,
    Can we use Cabbage and Capsicum ?
    Please guide ?
    God bless and wish you all the best always….

    • of course, you can use cabbage and capsicum. but if using cabbage and capsicum, no need to cook them. you can just chop them finely and add in dough. or you can blanch the cabbage and add. its always better to blanch cabbage as it contains worms and in the layers of the leaves and at times cannot be seen. if blanching, then drain very well. otherwise the dough will become sticky. no need to add water then. only add water if required.

  5. Hi Dassana,
    I am a Hispanic woman who work for an Indian family from South India. Thanks so much for this great recipe they will love me more after I make this paratha recipe, actually I will surprise them with this. From now on I will follow up all your posting.

    • thanks dina. hope they like the recipes. wish you all the best in your life.

  6. Fourth recipe in a row.. and what to say… nice taste…a diff way to make parathas… 🙂
    But as it was first time… and i think i made some mistake with regards to qty as when mkng parathas….the dough was too soft and got sticky… also I think the paratha shud be made a little thicker… right?

    • thanks kruti. usually when making veggie parathas where the veggies are boiled and mashed, no or very little water should be added. as at times the dough does become sticky. the moisture from the mashed veggies is enough to bind the dough. you can make parathas thick or medium sized. i usually make medium sized ones and not thick ones, as thats how we prefer at home.
