Carrot paratha

I always look for ways to sneak some vegetables in our regular meals. Carrot sambar, poriyal, carrot uthappam, carrot kuzhi paniyaram, carrot cake ,carrot raitha,carrot orange juice, carrot halwa are some of the delicious recipes for carrot. Likewise carrot filled paratha is a very easy recipe to help include another serving of vegetable. I am sure many of us are having a happy summer. Here I am back to the blogging world with this paratha. Hope you all like it!







Ingredients:
Whole wheat flour - 1 1/2 cup
salt - 1/4 tsp
Extra virgin olive oil - few tsp

Filling:
carrot - 2
red onion - 2 tbsp (chopped)
green chilly - 1 (chopped)
salt - to taste
cumin - 1 tsp
Peel , wash and shred the carrot. Shred it as small as possible. Heat 1 tsp oil in a wok. Add cumin, chopped onion, chilly and saute till onion gets soft. Then add the shredded carrot and saute well. Cook covered in minimum heat after adding salt. Cook for 2 - 3 minutes only. Switch off.

Method:
Knead the wheat flour , salt using regular water to a chapathi dough stage. Apply 1 tsp olive oil and knead again. Wrap it using a wet cloth or 'cling wrap' and keep aside.
Take a small lime size ball of dough (12 balls). Flatten it to palm size round chapati. Place a tbsp of carrot stuffing inside and close it as shown in figure (by bringing all the edges together).
Dust the chapati rolling board with tbsp of wheat flour and place the stuffed bundle in such a way that
knot like portion touches the board. Using a rolling pin , flatten it to a thin paratha.
Heat a tawa and place the rolled paratha on it. After few seconds, flip it and drizzle some oil around the paratha. Flip again and cook both sides.
Take out and keep warm inside a casserole or airtight vessel.
Likewise make the entire batch.
Carrot paratha is ready!

Serving suggestions:
Makes 12 parathas.
Serve with any pickle or raitha or side dish.
