I absolutely heart one pot or rather one dish meals… yes I love cooking and there are times when I have made a 5-course meal for many people but there are times when I dont want to do anything and make one item which will be a complete balance meal… pulaos, khichdis, pastas are the usual that come to mind when we talk about one dish meal but what about paranthas? There are so many things we can do to a parantha and come up with a yummy and fully balanced meal in itself.

Couple of weeks back in such a frame of mind… I made this…. it tasted absolutely divine and with a bowl of curd and some salad.. a meal in itself couldnt have been healthier

What I used

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup ragi flour
  • 1/2 soya flour
  • 1/2 gram flour
  • 1 bunch methi leaves pureed
  • 1 bunch spinach leaves chopped finely
  • 1 small onion chopped finely
  • 1 tsp oil for kneading
  • 1/2 tsp ajwain
  • 1/2 cup curd (sigh how i missed it when i typed it first)
  • salt and chilli powder (u can also use green chillies, I avoided because of ojas)

How I made

  • Mix together all ingredients and knead to make a soft chapati dough
  • Take a ball to make paranthas… roll into a chapathi size and then spread oil on top and roll in it a spiral
  • Roll again and u will get enough lachas in the parantha πŸ™‚ u can ofcourse make paranthas as u choose πŸ™‚ and enjoy a power packed meal

Wheat and ragi provide the cereals, gram flour and soya the pulses and hence the protien… methi and spinach the veggies and that too green veggies… some curd added to the doufh and then a little curd to eat along for dairy products and its as balanced as it can get.

Ok swaram promise this is the last one and then in the weekend I will be quiet no posts πŸ˜‰
