Mini Triangle Stuffed Paratha

Makes : 6 pieces

Ingredients Needed:

For the dough

Whole Wheat flour / Atta - 1 cup
Salt to taste

For the Stuffing:

Onion - quarter of a medium
Carrot - 1 small
Cabbage - handful
Beans - 4-5 nos
Tomato - quarter piece
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Tomato Sauce - 1 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/4 tsp
Hot Tomato Sauce - 1/2 tsp (opt)
Oil - 1 tsp

Method to prepare:

For the dough:
Mix the flour with salt and enough water to knead into a soft dough

For the stuffing:

Chop all the vegetables into fine pieces, heat a non stick pan with oil. Sauté the cumin, along with onions. Then add the vegetables one by one. Simmer the flame and cover with lid.

Add the salt and chili powder. Mix well. Then add the tomato sauce and the hot tomato sauce if you are using it.

This almost gets done in 5 -7 mins. It will be great if the vegetables are still crunchy.

For making the mini parathas:

Heat a pan for roast the parathas.

Divide the dough into small balls. Roll them into thin discs.

Cut through in middle to get half moons. Scoop the stuffing and place over the middle. Bring one side over the stuffing and seal the sides to ensure the stuffing doesn't come out.

Roast them over hot pan and grease oil over it. Cook on both sides by lightly pressing them to make sure all the spots are cooked.


 The vegetable mix for this is quite simple. You can actually add whatever is available in your pantry. As Carrots, Beans and Cabbage are eternal in my fridge I thought I will just use them.

You can get very creative in making this. I just added whatever I felt my kids will eat. Of course I ended up eating the most.
Homemade Coffee Creamer

Homemade Coffee Creamer

I prefer to strain each of the creamers through a fine mesh sieve to prevent any spices floating in my coffee. If this doesn’t matter to you, then simply skip this step. Also, if you prefer a sweeter creamer, than simply add extra maple syrup. Prefer it a bit more creamy? Substitute some of the milk with heavy cream.  The creamers keep for about 10 days in the refrigerator.
