An exciting treat for your palate, the Hari Mirchi Paratha gives you the delightful flavour of green chillies, at acceptable spice levels.
Here, the whole wheat flour parathas are stuffed with a tongue-tickling mixture of deseeded light green chillies perked up with cumin and nigella seeds, and cooked with oodles of oil to get the authentic Delhi touch.
You need to keep some pointers in mind when making this paratha. Use only light green chillies and deseed them properly. Otherwise, it will be so spicy that nobody will be able to eat it. Wash your hands thoroughly after chopping the chillies, and in case you have sensitive skin, you can rub a little oil on your hands before chopping the chillies, to avoid a burning sensation.
These parathas are super tasty, and since they are moderately spicy, you don’t need any special accompaniment. Just curds will do!
