Carrot Parathas(Carrot Indian Wheat Bread)

As my kids won't eat all the vegetables i always keep thinking the way to feed them these i prepare all types of parathas and give them as in parathas they don't get what vegetable there are eating.
This one is healthy and tasty too.
  • 2 cup Atta(wheat flour)
  • 3-4 carrot grated
  • coriander leaves chopped
  • green chilies chopped(optional)
  • 1" ginger chopped
  • 1/2 red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp chat masala
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala(optional)
  • salt
  • 1/4 cup curd(optional)
  • water to knead
  • oil

Wash,peel and grate carrots.Take a bowl,add all the ingredients above except water and oil.
Mix them well,now add 1 tsp of oil and mix again.
Take water and pour little by little on the mixer ,knead them into smooth ,soft dough.knead them properly for 2minutes.
Now add again 1 tsp of oil and knead them for 2 more minutes.keep them aside for at least 15 minutes,covering it with wet cloth/kitchen paper towel.
Make equal size portions of the dough like golf size balls.
Using wheat flour for rolling,roll this balls into 5-6 inch diameter round parathas.
Heat the griddle and cook these parathas on both sides putting oil on it.
When brown bubbles pops up on both sides ,remove from griddle.
Serve this parathas with pickle/curd/any curry/you can eat just like that with ghee/butter.

  1. Seeing this itself I decided I will make it someday soon as it seemed so healthy and flavorful. I tried it and it was really yummy and had a unique nice aroma. The best part is that it remains fresh when kept in fridge even for the next day. As curd is added it remains soft too, I didnt even add oil.
