Khajoor Badaam Parathas!



This is my final entry to Roti Mela hosted by Srivalli of cooking4allseasons.blogspot.com sweet paratha!

And,
This is also my entry to Sweet Series hosted by http://www.paajaka.com/

This Paratha tastes sweet and crisp. It is delicious and healthy too!
Ingredients
12 to 14 Khajoors (Dates)
1 cup finely crucshed jaggery
2 to 3 tbspn. Oil or Ghee
7 to 8 almonds
2 to 3 cups wheat flour
2 tspn. Khus Khus
½ cup milk

The Dough

Method
Soak the datesfor half an hour, remove the seeds and keep aside. Soak the almonds for 1 or 2 hours, peel the skin and chop it. Keep aside. Fry the khuskhus on a frying pan for about 3 to 4 minutes, constantly stirring it. Keep aside. Now, Grind the dates, almonds, khus khus together, make a paste. Now, add jaggery to the paste and mix well, you may add more jaggery if you want it tobe sweeter. Add wheat flour (you may add more if you feel its too sticky), add milk spoon by spoon and knead the dough. Once the batter is ready, keep it aside covered for about 15 to 20 minutes.


Now roll out the parathas and fry them on a frying pan, by adding ghee/oil. Your sweet parathas are ready.Serve hot with some homemade butter!



I made some Methi lasan Parathas too , just to have a sweet and spicy combination in my meal!
