Stuffed Carrot Paratha


  I found a recipe of stuffed paratha over the internet. I don’t remember the exact recipe but what caught me was that the stuffing was placed in between two chapatis.  This made heavy stuffing in one paratha and also very tasty  SO I started trying all the stuffed parathas the same way.







Here goes the recipe.


Ingredients:

For the rotis:

Wheat flour -1 cup
Yogurt – ¼ cup
Water as required
Salt – to taste

For the stuffing :

Big Carrots – 2
Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
Oil – 1tsp
Garam masala – ½ tsp
Salt – to taste


Method :

  • Add wheat flour, yogurt and salt in a bowl .Knead them soft with required water to make a dough. Keep it aside for 10 mins.
  • Meanwhile grate the carrots. Heat oil in a pan and saute the grated carrots.
  • Once they are cooked(will not take more than 5 mins) add salt, red chilli powder and garam masala.
  • Mix them well in a low flame and keep the stuffing ready.
  • Now roll the dough into balls.

  •  Take a dough ball and spread it with a chapati roller into a medium size. Not too thick, it to be just the normal size.

  • Make two of them. Place the prepared carrot mixture on the chapati. Place another chapati on this and seal all the edges.


  • If possible try pressing this stuffed chapati once again with the roller by using flour. You could also stop here.
  • Now put the stuffed chapati on a tawa. After a min, flip it over and drizzle some oil. Once the chapati is cooked, take it on a serving plate.







  • Serve it hot as is or with any raita.

My Notes: 
  • This procedure can be used with any stuffing as there is no fear of the stuffing coming out or unable to spread the chapati properly.
  • We can really add lot of stuffing inside and it is truly heavy.We cannot eat more than two of them.
