Mixed Vegetable Parata
Weekend refrigerator clean up lead to the creation of today's parata. I get carried away at the farmers market and the next thing you know I have a refrigerator bursting at it seems. I have had help with making roti's for a while now, I make the stuffing and root lady makes the roti's/parata's. She is a pro and makes roti's like its nobodies business. Today's recipe has serious serving of vegetables and also used flax seed so makes for a delicious and healthy roti.
3 carrots peeled
1 cup broccoli
2 cups cabbage
1 bell pepper/capsicum
1 spinach bunch about 2 cups
1/2 bunch of cilantro
1/2 bunch of mint (optional)
2-3 green chilies ( adjust according to taste)
2 tbsp of cumin seeds
tbsp of turmeric (optional)
2 tbsp of garam masala ( or your choice of masala's like chaat masala)
1 tbsp kasoori methi (optional)
1 tbsp red chili powder
2 tbsp flax seeds powder
salt according to taste
3 cups of chapathi atta
2 tbsp of oil
1. Wash all the vegetables and run them through a food processor with all dry ingredients included.
2. Grate till it become finely chopped.
3. Now to the above add chapathi flour , since the vegetable mix leaves a lot of water it should suffice to bring the dough around.
Heat a griddle/tava and when hot add the roti and let is cook for about a minute or two of each side.
Remove from heat and store in a closed container.
