Malai Besani Paratha (Cream stuffed bread)

Malai Besani Paratha (Cream and gram flour stuffed bread)

Childhood memories are always close to our heart. My mom used to serve this paratha to me and my sister during winters and monsoon. I used to relish it a lot. I am trying to pass on this tradition as this is considered to be a rich diet for growing age and growing bones. Hope your kids will also love it...

  • 2 Cup Atta (wheat flour)

  • 1 Teaspoon chopped green chillies
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped coriander 
  • Red chilly powder according to taste

  • For dough : In a bowl take atta along with salt and ajwain seeds mix it well. Now add water as required and knead the dough nicely till it is properly done. Keep it aside for 20 to 30 minutes

Tips : cook paratha on medium flame so that it is crispy from outside and properly cooked from inside
