corn -oats -whole wheat parathas.... herbed multi-grain flat breads


Another multi grain paratha for a typical punjabi breakfast . If you think on the lines of high fiber and complex carbohydrates , this is the paratha for you . A bowl of fresh curds and may be some pickle of your choice will be great in the morning . I personally like it wrapped with some thin cucumber and carrot sticks , washed down with thin masala buttermilk.

ingredients...
(for about 10 parathas )

fresh or frozen corn paste 1 cup ( the same as i used for a corn idli and pakode recipe )
oatmeal 1 cup
whole wheat flour 1.5 cup and some more for dusting
dried fenugreek leaves 2 tbsp
red chilly powder 1 tsp
ajwain seeds 1 tsp
salt to taste
ghee 1-2 tsp per paratha




preparation....

Mix all the ingredients except ghee and make a medium stiff dough by adding little water to the mixture..


Divide the dough into 10 portions and make round balls , roll each ball of dough on a dusted surface , using a rolling pin and shallow fry each one , both sides till brown spots appear. You may like to make them crisp or soft , crisp ones will be great for immediate consumption but if you have to serve them later or pack in a tiffin box , it will be appropriate to make softer parathas by allowing just small pinkish brown spots.


These flat breads can be used as wraps for your favorite salad fillings or can be smothered with any chutney or dip for a quick snack.......they are very versatile and yummy on their own too....the best thing is , they keep very well in the fridge and you can just take them out , microwave for a minute and serve as desired....

  11. For healthy food, sometimes we need to look at the unhealthy...

    I have decided to check out the rumors what going around in the past few years, and will conduct the experiment myself.

    I have put my son's milk tooth in a glass of cola and made a picture* of it every day for about 2 weeks, then once a few days.

    Time by time I have washed it with toothpaste and toothbrush, then replaced the cola with fresh one.
    For the experiment I used Coca Cola, because that is the most popular cola.
    The result can be seen below.
