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.
thanks for the response. I wanna try it 🙂
thats a good one..super delicious

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?
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
when i dry roasted mint leaves it started to leave water and it became soggy. how to make it crispier
Keep it on a tawa after the moisture in pudina evaporates it be be crispy.
Looks tempting i going to try it with your arasi vadai too
Looks yummy going to try it today
