Ginger Parathas


A couple of years ago, I saw a post about ginger parathas. I thought it was worth a try and noted it down. I am rather interested in collecting new recipes than trying them. So, actually I never attempted to prepare these parathas. The recipe was playing hide and seek whenever I opened my recipe book. Since, JFI - Ginger event is going on, I thought this is the right time to try them. I did and posting the recipe now. The original recipe can be found here. I followed basically the same recipe but omitted a few things to suit our taste.

Ingredients:
Whole wheat flour - 2 cups
Ginger powder - 1/2 tsp
Sesame seeds - 1 Tbsp
Carom (ajwain) seeds - 1/4 tsp
Fresh ginger grated - 2 tsp.
Cilantro finely chopped - 1 Tbsp
Yogurt - 2 Tbsp
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil to fry the parathas

Making Parathas:
Mix everything (except the last item in the ingredients list) and make a soft, pliable dough adding water as needed. Knead it and leave the dough to rest for half an hour. Then make lemon sized balls out of the dough and roll them out into thin circles. Heat a skillet and then shallow fry these parathas (thin circles rolled out of the dough) using oil, till both sides turn golden brown .
Serve hot with a curry.

Suma,
Using just ginger for parathas is totally new to me. I use it along with other veggies but not just as ginger. Gottu try it.
