Dinner is served..Hot and steamy rotis and sizzling spicy hot rajma curry for hubby and myself.
Lazy mommy washed away the spicy gravy and served the little wonder boy rajma pieces and roti.
Who am I kidding? Wonder boy has sharp eyes, he can spot out even the minute differences in his and our plates. So there he comes to drown his piece of roti in the red dipping sauce. It did not take more than 10 seconds for him to cry out for joooooose (Juice).
So, the next day I turned off my favorite evening show on TV (I wouldn't miss it, I know its safe with 'On Demand'.. Wink) and geared up for some flavor filled no-dip-needed rotis.
We all love a good savory parata, and in particular the stuffed paratta.. A nice mound of flaky, crispy, chewy roti with a nice veggie/butter flavor. And that is how my carrot/mooli/dal paratta was born. I could not make the stuffed version as the mix always jumped out when i tried to spread it So, I mixed it all up with wheat flour. I still need help from fellow bloggers to learn how to roll out neat parattas.
Grated carrots, grated mooli
1 tbsp cooked and mashed moong dal,
1 tbsp cooked and mashed Rajma
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1/2 tsp garam masala
salt to taste,
1 tbsp oil
Saute these till the raw ginger-garlic smell fades and knead this mix with wheat flour.
Make rotis out of it and serve it with butter.
