PUDINA PARATHA RECIPE

mINT FLAVORED INDIAN FLAT BREAD

  Pudina paratha is one my favorite Indian flat bread and i used to order this whenever we go to restaurants. I wanted to try pudina paratha at home for a long time, but somehow it doesn’t happen and finally i made this last weekend it turned out very nice. I wanted to try this as  laccha paratha which is normally made in restaurants, but my laziness didn’t allow me and finally i rolled it into parathas.
pudina paratha
INGREDIENTS:(YIELDS-8 Medium sized parathas)
WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR(ATTA) 2 CUPS
SALT AS NEEDED
MINT LEAVES(Tightly packed) 2 CUPS
CHAAT MASALA 1/4 TSP
OIL 2-3 TSP
paratha
METHOD:
  • Wash the mint leaves and pat dry them.

  • Take half portion of the mint leaves and finely chop them.
  • Add this to the flour and knead it into a pliable dough adding required amount of water to this.

  • In a griddle |tawa, add the remaining mint leaves and roast them nicely.

  • When they become crisp take them out and just give a pulse in a mixer.

  25. Hello. You have very nice blog. This recipe looks fantastic. But let me ask you a question, do mint leaves makes flour come together easily? Don't we need some water or something? I didn't understand this step. Thank you.

  28. should we try roast the mint leaves for making powder.
    after the parathas r done can we sprinkle mint powder.
    can we skip garam masal powder?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can dry roast the mint leaves too. But after the parathas are done if you sprinkle it will easily come out of the parathas. If u sprinkle while making it will get infused into the paratha.
      I added chaat masala , though u can skip i recommend to add it as it gives a nice aroma to the paratha
