Keema & Couscous Paratha (Chicken Mince & Couscous Flat Bread)

          Any left over keema (mince) can be easily used to make these delicious parathas. I also added some couscous to it. They are very filling and wholesome for a perfect no fuss meal. Try having it with some butter. It simply tastes awesome.

  • 100 gms chicken mince
  • 1/4 cup couscous, soaked in 1/4 cup hot water for 15 minutes
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger-garlic paste
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp. coriander-cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
  • 1 tbsp. oil to knead
  • oil to shallow fry
           Knead the atta, 1 tbsp. oil and enough water to make a dough. keep aside. Heat 2 tbsp. oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds. Then add the onion and saute till light brown.

          Now add the ginger-garlic paste, coriander-cumin powder, garam masala powder, red chili powder and turmeric powder mixed with little water. Saute till the oil separates.

          Add the mince and salt and fry till dry. Add 1 cup water and cook, covered on a low flame till done and till all the moisture dries up.

        When cool, mix with the couscous and salt to taste. Keep aside. Divide the dough and the keema-couscous filling into equal portions.

          Roll out one portion of the dough into a small circle. Place a portion of the filling and bring all the edges together and close. Roll into a circle with the help of some atta and keep aside. Roll the rest of the dough in the similar manner with the filling.

          Heat the tawa / griddle and fry the parathas with the help of some oil on both sides till light brown. Serve with some yoghurt or pickle.
