Rajan loves cooking dishes from his native Indian cuisine. He likes to share his favorite recipes with his online readers.

Dahi ka Paratha

Dahi ka Paratha

Paratha is a pan-fried Indian flatbread that is typically served for breakfast or lunch. Dahi paratha is prepared with whole-wheat flour, spices, and dahi (yoghurt). It is easy to make and is quite flavourful because of the assortment of spices used.

I like to serve it with whole red chilli pickle, but you can have it with any pickle along with some butter or malai (fresh cream).

3 parathas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
  • 1 tsp/to taste salt
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
  • 1 tsp red chilli flakes
  • 1 green chilli, chopped fine
  • 1-inch piece ginger, peeled and grated
  • 5-6 garlic cloves, ground
  • 10-15 mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp hara dhania (cilantro), finely chopped
  • 8-10 tbsp dahi (curd/yoghurt), or as needed
  • desi ghee (clarified butter), as needed
  • dry flour, as needed

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, add the atta and the rest of the ingredients except the desi ghee. Mix well.
  2. Add the dahi little by little and mix until it forms into a dough that is neither too soft nor too stiff. Knead the dough for 3-4 minutes; then cover with a cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  3. After 10 minutes, set a tawa to heat up on low-medium heat. While it heats, roll out the parathas.
  4. To prepare the paratha, divide the dough into three equal portions. Take one portion, roll it into a ball, flatten it, and dust with some dry flour. Roll out the dough into a medium-thick paratha.
  5. Grease the hot tawa with a little desi ghee. Place the first paratha on it, keep the heat on medium, and let one side cook for 15-20 seconds. Then flip it over and let the other side cook for 15-20 seconds.
  6. Flip the paratha again and spread a little desi ghee over it, then flip it once more and spread a little desi ghee over this side, too.
  7. Cook the paratha by flipping it frequently until it is dotted golden on both sides. Transfer to a plate and prepare the rest of the parathas similarly.
  8. Serve with red chilli pickle or any other pickle of your choice.
