The filling can be prepared the night before to make it easier to make the paratha quickly during the rush-hour before school.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup soya flour
salt to taste
warm water for kneading
For the filling
2-3 cloves of garlic(minced)
1 onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1 cup mixed veggies, boiled (carrot,peas,beans,cauliflower,spinach)
salt to taste
2 tsp oil
In a bowl, mix together wheat flour, soya flour & salt. Knead with warm water to form a soft dough. Cover with a moist towel & set aside.
For the filling: Heat oil in a pan. Add minced garlic & saute for a couple of mins. Add the chopped onion & saute till light golden.
Add the spices & saute for a few mins. Then add the boiled veggies.
Cook together till everything blends well.
Cool this mixture for a few mins & rough chop or mince this mixture in the food processor. (Make sure it does not turn into a paste)
Form small lemon sized balls of the chappathi dough. Flatten a little by hand & place one spoonful of the vegetable filling inside. Close & seal the filling with the dough.
Roll out carefully with the help of a rolling pin. Cook on a hot tawa, smearing with ghee/oil till both sides are done.
