Most of our dinner goes for rotis,soups or else for salads..Yesterday i bought a packet of pillsbury atta when we went to Indian groceries after a long and i tried this mint and kalonji seeds paratha...Kalonji seeds as well known as nigella seeds, black onions seeds which is compared to black cumin seeds....I really want to finish a packet of kalonji seeds i have bought few months back and tried adding them in this paratha, also i add few finely chopped mint leaves to mask the pungent smell by kalonji seeds..Both mint and kalonji seeds turned out this paratha very flavourful, healthy also with a very unique taste..Enjoyed having this paratha with simple potato kurma,both together works out wonder and we had a prefect dinner..Sending this parathas to CWS-Nigella Seeds guest hosted by Umm, event started by me..
2cups Atta flour
1/4cup Mint leaves (chopped)
1tbsp Nigella seeds/Kalonji seeds
Maida flour for dusting
Mix the atta flour, chopped mint leaves, nigella seeds,salt in a bowl, gradually add the yogurt and enough water and knead as soft and smooth dough..Let them sit for half an hour..Make small balls from the dough and roll them, dust them with maida flour and roll them as medium sized discs..
Heat a griddle, gently drop the rolled parathas, drizzle few drops of oil and cook on both side until the brown spots appears..Enjoy with any spicy gravies..
