Capsicum and Onion Parathas

 When for the  sys-w-series-november event  Viji  revealed the ingredients as capsicum and onions for me I decided to make these capsicum onion parathas.

 Parathas or Indian breads are very important part of our meals . They are a rich source of protiens and carbohydrates. The parathas turned out simply delicious and adding potato mash made them soft and fluffy . 

This is also my entry for the  lets-brunch-on-sundays started by  priya and veena as these are  perfect to have for sunday brunch .








Ingredients :

2 capsicums.....................chopped very finely
2 onion...........................chopped finely
4 cups............................wheat flour
2 boiled potatoes..............peel the skin and mash well
1 tbsp..............................cumin coriander powder
1 tbsp..............................ginger garlic paste
1 tsp................................chilly paste
1 tsp................................turmeric powder
salt
ghee






Method :

Add all the ingredients except ghee and knead a firm dough with just enough water.

Once you make the dough don't keep it for long.

Due to the addition of onions the dough starts becoming soft and loose.

So immediately role into thick parathas and cook them on non stick pan.

While cooking apply ghee and cook on both sides till they are golden in colour.

Serve with pickle and raita.

  5. Recently I've started making mixed veggie parathas for my son. Just cook the veggies, mash and mix it up in the dough itself :-) Yours looks really nice.
