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.

  1. 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.

    • 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
