Tomato Paratha

Nice recipe of tomato Paratha - a healthy brunch dish to share here with you all today.




Ingredients:


3-4 big ripe tomatoes,
green chillies 3 crushed,
1/4 tsp methi(fenugreek) seeds powder ,
1/4 tsp mustard seeds powder ,
1 tsp red chilli powder,
sugar powdered ( optional),

Method :


Take a tawa add 1 tbls of oil , Add to it the cut tomatoes with turmeric and salt cook in a med.flame until it is well cooked . Add to it the crushed green chillie and red chillie powder and the methi-mustard powder with a pinch of sugar. Cook for couple of minutes more until the gravy becomes a thick jam consistency & the water is absorbed. Cool completely. Take the tomato paste in a bowl add to it 3/4 cup wheat flour and 1tbls of maida mix well without adding water. Only add water if required into a thick dough. Add salt if required.roll out as even size parathas. Heat tawa and cook it on both the sides until crisp just as shown in the process of Paratha. Serve hot with any raita.

I served it along with a quick side dish made up of carrot and green chillie.
