Ingredients


For The Dough
2 cups whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta)
salt to taste
1 tsp oil

Other Ingredients
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
1 tsp ginger (adrak) paste
1 tsp green chilli paste
1 cup chopped chawli (cow pea) leaves
1/2 cup chopped spinach (palak)
finely grated carrot
salt to taste
whole wheat flour (gehun ka atta) for rolling
oil for cooking

Method
For the dough

  1. Combine the flour, salt and ½ tsp of oil together in a bowl and knead into a soft and pliable dough using enough water. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  2. Knead again using the remaining ½ tsp of oil till it is smooth and elastic.
  3. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Heat the oil in a kadhai and add the cumin seeds.
  2. When the seeds crackle, add the ginger paste and green chilli paste and sauté on a slow flame for a minute, while stirring continuously.
  3. Add the amaranth leaves, spinach and salt, one at a time and sauté for 5-7 minutes on a medium flame.
  4. Cool and divide the stuffing into 12 equal portions and keep aside.
  5. Roll out each portion of the dough into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle.
  6. Place one portion of the stuffing mixture in the centre of the circle, bring together all the sides in the centre and seal tightly.
  7. Roll out again into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle, using a little wheat flour for rolling.
  8. Cook on a hot tava (griddle), using a little oil, till golden brown spots appear on both the sides.
  9. Repeat with the remaining dough and stuffing to make 11 more parathas.
