Paratha or stuffed paratha are sumptuous Indian flat-breads that can be relished with curd, pickle, raita or even sabji. They can be as simple as the plain paratha or something as filling as the aloo methi paratha or the paneer stuffed paratha. You can even mix together all the ingredients to prepare a delightful dough and then roll out a paratha just like we have done in the below mentioned pudina paratha recipe.
To make pudina paratha, take fresh mint leaves. You will know the leaves are fresh when they are bright green in color and not yellow. To knead the dough for paratha, in a bowl take fresh and washed mint leaves, pudina enhances the flavour and aroma of the Mint Paratha but if you do not have fresh mint leaves then you can make use of dried mint leaves. Add whole wheat flour and oil. Addition of oil helps in making the paratha softer. Further, add the ajwain. Crush them lightly between your palms before adding to get the most from it. Next, add red chilli powder. Add warm water and knead to a soft dough. Next, divide, shape and flatten the dough between your palms. Roll a portion into a 200 mm. (8”) diameter circle using whole wheat flour for rolling and grease it evenly using a little oil and fold the 2 opposite corners of the roti towards the centre, without overlapping them. Now fold the other 2 opposite corners similarly to make a square envelope. Next, heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the paratha using a little oil till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides. Serve the mint paratha hot with fresh curds and pickle.
Mint has an aroma that cannot be locked up! As the Pudina Paratha cooks on the tava, whiffs of mint and carom seeds fill the air, preparing the diners for the wonderful meal that awaits them.
