Gajar Gobi Paratha with Onion Masala Chutney!!

This is my entry for the Roti Mela!!

I decided to make some colourful parathas….this was an attempt only…hehehe…which I wish to share with you all….:) It tasted great too!!!
Here’s the recipe
Recipe Serves 2 to 3

For the Parathas

3 to 4 cups full wheat flour
1 small cabbage (purple) finely chopped
2 medium size carrots peeled & grated
Oil for kneading & subtle frying
5 to 6 pods garlic finely crushed
½’’ ginger peeled and finely crushed
chilly powder as per taste
Salt to taste


Divide the wheat flour into half. Take the first half, add salt, chilly powder, crushed ginger and grated carrots. Knead adding oil & water. Make a soft dough.Keep aside.
Now, take the other half of the wheat flour, add salt, chilly powder, crushed garlic and chopped cabbage. Make a soft dough. Keep aside.
Make parathas and fry them with butter or oil. Don’t make them too brown so that the colour is retained. You can get creative here and blend them together and make other variety designs with it for fun.

For Onion Masala Chutney
1 medium size onion finely chopped
5 to 6 curry leaves
½ tspn. Mustard seeds
¼ tspn. Turmeric powder
½ tspn. Sugar
½ tspn. Chilly powder
A pinch of hing
1 tbspn. oil

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, turmeric powder, curry leaves, chilly powder, sugar, salt & chopped onion. Fry till nice dark brown and fragrant. Add salt, fry for ½ a minute more. Let it cool. Grind this mixture into a thick paste.
Relish with hot parathas!!!
