Recipe: Masala Parathas
Masala parathas are irresistible and a perfect recipe for breakfast.Ingredients:
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup rice or all.purpose flour
3 to 4 cabbage leaves
Cayenne Pepper to taste
1 jalapeno or serrano pepper
4 green chiles
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
Salt to tasteProcedure:
Finely chop all the vegetables either in a chopper or by hand in a large plate. You may even grate them if a chopper is not available. Add the flours, 2 tablespoons oil, salt, cayenne, turmeric and knead to a very stiff dough. Do not keep the dough for long after kneading, or it will become gooey and soft. This would make it difficult to roll the parathas.
Divide into 3 parts. Roll into 5.inch rounds. Shallow fry on a hot griddle (tawa) on both sides until golden brown using the remaining oil. Eat hot or carry away for later, with sauce, tamarind or onion chutney.
