Parathas form a staple diet almost everywhere, especially in the Northern regions of India. They are prepared in many ways, with many ingredients and with different types of stuffing.
Now let me share Tomato Paratha, where I gave a rectangular shape and had them with a side dish. They also go well with pickles / yoghurt / butter too. They certainly are a nutritious satisfying breakfast. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.
- 1 cup Atta (whole wheat flour)
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp. red chili powder
- 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
- 1 tbsp. oil to knead
- puree of 2 tomatoes
- oil to shallow fry
In a bowl, sift the Atta and knead a tight dough with salt, 1 tbsp. oil, red chili powder, garam masala and the tomato puree. Keep aside for 25-30 minutes.
Divide into 4 equal portions and roll out each into a circle. Brush some oil over it and sprinkle little flour .
Fold from two opposite sides and then again from the other two sides as shown just like an envelope. Roll out similar parathas from the remaining dough.
Heat a tawa / griddle and shallow fry the parathas one at a time by drizzling some oil over it and around the edges.
Fry the parathas till light golden in colour on both sides. Serve them hot with any side dish or pickle.
