Stuffed Paratha







the recipe

Chapati dough – to make 12 thin chapatis ( I used 1 ¼ cup wheat flour)
black sesame – ½ tsp or more
cumin  - ½ tsp or more

ingredients for the stuffing / filling (the combination and quantity of veggies can be as per need)

potato – 1
carrot – 1
cauliflower – ¾ cup florets
beans – 5-7

onion – 1
garlic paste -  1 tsp
ginger paste -  1 tsp
garam masala -  ½ tsp
turmeric  1/8 tsp
chilly powder – ½ tsp
pepper powder – ¼ tsp
oil – 1 tbsp
butter (optional) – 1 tsp
raisins (optional) – 5
salt – to taste




the method

Heat oil in a pan and stir in the onions. When translucent add garlic and ginger. Stir for a minute and add turmeric, chilly, pepper and garam masala. Stir for few seconds and add all the chopped vegetables. Add the finely chopped raisins and salt. Add enough water to cook the vegetables till soft (pressure cooking is better). Add  butter to the cooked vegetables and mash it to a coarse paste.

Roll out the dough into thin chapattis. While rolling place a pinch of sesame in 6 of the chapattis and place a pinch of cumin in other 6 chapatis.

Assembling

Place a chapatti with the sesame on the rolling board. Place 1 ½ to 2 tbsp of the veg mash in the chapatti and spread it evenly (leaving ¾ inch space on the sides). Close it with another chapatti rolled with the cumin seeds. Seal the edges by gently rolling it. Heat a griddle and cook the stuffed parathas with oil pressing down the sides. Serve with raita or lentil curry.
