Instructions

preparation for mix veg paratha

  • Rinse, peel and chop the veggies.
  • Then steam or boil the veggies in a pressure cooker or steamer till they are thoroughly cooked.
  • If you are mixing the raw vegetables with water while cooking, then do not discard the water. 
  • Some of this water can be added to the dough while kneading. Also you can add this water to make soups or dals.
  • When the veggies cool down, then mash with a potato masher. Mash very well.
  • Add finely chopped spinach. If you do not have spinach, then you can add other green like amaranth or fenugreek (methi). 
  • Add chopped coriander leaves, green chilies and ginger.
  • Add cumin powder, coriander powder, red chili powder, garam masala powder, asafoetida and salt.
  • Mix the spices and salt very well with the mashed veggie mixture.

kneading dough and rolling veg paratha

  • Add whole wheat flour (atta). Make a well and add oil or ghee.
  • Bring everything together and start to knead.
  • No need to add water while kneading. Add water only if its a must. Otherwise the dough becomes sticky.
  •  in case if the dough becomes sticky then add some more flour.
  • Knead to a smooth dough.
  • Pinch medium sized ball from the dough. Flatten & sprinkle some flour all over it.
  • Gently roll to a size of a chapati or roti. Add more flour if required while rolling.

making veg paratha

  • Place the rolled vegetable paratha on a hot tava.
  • When the base is one-fourth cooked, flip. Spread some ghee or oil on this side.
  • Flip again when the second side is half cooked. Apply ghee on this side now.
  • Flip again a couple of times to get the parathas browned and cooked well. 
  • You can also press the paratha edges with a spatula or spoon, so that they are fried well. Since some times, the paratha edges are not cooked well.
  • Make all mix vegetable parathas this way.
  • Serve mix vegetable paratha with curd or pickle or topped with butter.
