Pudina Paratha

Pudina Paratha
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook time:10 minutes
Serves: 4servings
Pudina paratha or mint paratha is another healthy breakfast recipe. Easy to prepare recipe with fresh mint leaves. You can pack pudina parathas for tiffin too. Mint is said to have so many health benefits hence I try to include this in my day2day cooking in both forms : fresh as well as dry mint in deep fried aloo, raitas and in chutney too. You can also try my another recipe of fresh mint pudiney waley aloo. As far as this recipe is concerned ingredients required and detailed instructions for the recipe are as follows:
fresh mint leaves- ½ bunch
wheat flour-2 cups
pepper powder-1/2 teaspoon
chat masala-1/2 teaspoon
salt-to taste
water-for kneading the dough
oil-for shallow frying parathas


Wash mint leaves thoroughly, grind them coarsely without water.
In a bowl add wheat flour, crushed mint leaves, pepper powder , chat masala and salt, gradually adding water knead soft dough, leave it for 5 minutes.
Divide the dough in equal parts, make ball of each part.
Take one ball roll out slightly thick full sized chapati

With the help of your finger make a circle(hole) in chapati
Starts rolling the edges of circle outwards this will form a shape of pipe
From one part of pipe start rolling it again till pipe ends, this will form a roll(peda).
This way layers will form in paratha
Repeat the process with all the balls.
Now take one part of roll ( first one which you prepared) place it on a rolling board
Heat tawa on high flame
Roll out paratha with light hands so that after cooking layers should be easily visible.
Cook parathas on hot tawa, first on high flame as it turns pinkish adjust the flame to medium to low, apply oil on both sides and cook properly.
Repeat the same process with all the parathas.
Serve hot with curd or pickle of your choice.
