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.

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.

We do add water to make it a dough. Since it is a regular practise i didn't mention the addition of water. But now edited.Thanks for visiting my space.

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?

Reply
admin February 2, 2013 - 2:00 pm

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
