my picky eater son loves paratas only because i give him ketchup and dahi to eat with it! LOL!! so i try out varites of paratas so that he'll eat some veggies!!
i was thinkin gto make palak parata today but then i thought i'll make lauki.. may be in few days i'll make palak roti or parata..
this is what u'll need for the parata...
1 1/2 cups of grated lauki
2 cups aata
1/2 tsp jeera
1 tsp ajwaaii
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp red chilli pwdr
1/2 tsp turmeric pwdr
salt to taste
First squeeze out all the water from Lauki.
Heat oil in a kadai or pan and add jeera.
when the jeera is done add the chilli and turmeric powder.
Just when the masalas is a little brown add the lauki and cook for 2-3 mts.
when its cool mix the lauki to aata,ajwaaii, salt and knead to a dough.
roll out as normal rotis and cook on a tawa।
