We north Indians are so obsessed with parathas that we can stuff anything from them.I have seen Sanjeev kapoor making mithai paratha and paratha of gulab jamun too.I myself have stuffed so many things in them which include cooked lady finger(okra or bhindi ) too.Have you done that?
Whenever their is any rice recipe for dinner on Friday I store some rice for Saturday’s so that I don’t have to scratch my head much for any other thing.
As usual it is an instant rice recipe and you will not need much ingredients too to make this one.This is what I have always maintained on wise she.Just good food with less time and ingredients.
So here goes the recipe:-
Serves – 3-4 adults
Method and preparation – 20 minutes
For the dough:-
2 cups wheat flour(atta)
1-2 tsp salt
Water in kneading the dough.
1 tbsp of oil or 1tbsp of yogurt
Paratha filling :-
1.5 cup cooked rice(If the rice is 1 day old it taste much better)
3-4 chopped green chillies
1 inch shredded ginger
1 tsp coriander powder
salt to taste
1 tsp cumin powder
1/4tsp red chilli powder
Chopped Coriander /cilantro (I didn’t have this so i skipped it Easy solution )
Step1 -Mixed all the ingredients and make a dough .Keep it aside for 10 -15 minutes.
Step2 – Mash the rice well and put ginger, green chillies in it and all the ingredients mentioned under filling above.You can make ginger and green chilli paste also.I just put them up like this only.
Step 2 – Make two small balls of the dough and make thin small chapatis of them.
Step 2 – Now put the rice filling on one chapati and cover it up with another .The reason why we make thin chapati because when we put them together then paratha becomes quiet thick.You will come to know when you will make it .:)
Step3 – Now seal all the ends.
Step 4 – Roll the paratha using white flour /atta.
Step 5 – Roast the paratha as usual on a hot griddle till brown spots appears on both sides.You can use oil, ghee or butter or what ever you like to cook your paratha with.
All the rice lovers enjoy this pratha.It is easy to cook and tastes great.
Serve with raita, achaar and if you want to have a heavenly ride then add butter
