Mixed Vegetable Paratha

This recipe is requested by my friend Ranita, who is currently in US. As her hubby likes parathas, she was in a hunt for recipes to prepare different type of parathas. Ranita, here's one type of paratha which I had prepared last weekend for our morning brunch.

3 large boiled potatoes
1/2 Cup of Boiled Sweet Corn
1/2 Cup of Boiled Peas
1/2 Cup of Chopped Capsicum
1/2 Cup of Grated Carrots
1/2 Cup of Chopped Onions.
1 Tablespoon of Ginger-Garlic paste
1 Teaspoon of Coriander Powder
1 Teaspoon of Red Chilly Powder
1 Teaspoon of Turmeric Powder
1 Teaspoon of Garam Masala Powder
Juice of 1/2 Lime
2 Cups of Wheat flour
Salt to taste
Oil for kneading the dough

1. Take a vessel and add oil, add onions and saute them along with Ginger-Garlic paste
2. Then add all the vegetables except Potatoes. Add Turmeric Powder, Red Chilly Powder, Coriander Powder and let it cook for few minutes.
3. Mash the boil potatoes and add to the mixture. Add salt, garam masala powder and lime juice and mis well.
4. Keep aside the mixture and let it cool.
5. Now knead a dough from the wheat flour, while kneading the dough add 1 Teaspoon of salt as well.
6. Now make small balls out of the dough and roll it in to a small roti and add the stuffing. After adding the stuffing again roll it in to a round shape or shape you desire.
7. If your stuffing is coming out of your paratha, then here's a simple trick. Roll one roti and place the stuffing inside. Again roll a roti and place it on top of the roti rolled earlier and seal the corners with water.
8. Take a Non stick pan and add butter to it and cook the parathas on both the sides as shown below
9. Once the parathas are ready you can serve with your choice of pickles, Chutneys, any vegetables or simple curd

Note: Always use old potatoes while making Parathas, to avoid stuffing coming out of the parathas while rolling them
