chai paratha

chai paratha

parathas and chai
2 cups whole wheat flour
Water (as needed)
1 medium-sized potato (boiled and mashed) - for stuffing (optional)
1/2 cup finely chopped onions - for stuffing (optional)
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
Ghee or oil (for cooking)

In a large mixing bowl, add the whole wheat flour, salt, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, and red chili powder. Mix well.
Gradually add water and knead the mixture into a soft and smooth dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
If you are making stuffed parathas, mix the boiled and mashed potato with the chopped onions in a separate bowl.
Take a small portion of the dough and roll it into a ball. Flatten it with your palm and dust it with flour.
Roll out the dough into a small circle, place a spoonful of the potato-onion stuffing (if making stuffed parathas) in the center, and gather the edges to seal it.
Flatten the stuffed ball and roll it out gently into a larger circle. Be careful not to break the dough and ensure the stuffing stays intact.
Heat a tawa (griddle) on medium heat and place the rolled paratha on it.
Cook one side until you see small bubbles forming, then flip the paratha and cook the other side.
Apply ghee or oil on both sides of the paratha and cook until it turns golden brown and crispy. Repeat the process for the remaining dough and stuffing (if any) to make more parathas.



2 cups water
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons loose tea leaves or 2 tea bags
2-3 teaspoons sugar (adjust to taste)
2-3 green cardamom pods (lightly crushed)
1-inch piece of ginger (grated)
A few mint leaves (optional)

In a saucepan, bring water to a boil and add the grated ginger and crushed cardamom pods.
Let it simmer for a minute or two to infuse the flavors.
Add the milk to the saucepan and bring it to a boil while stirring occasionally to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom.
Once the milk comes to a boil, add the tea leaves or tea bags. Let the tea simmer for 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to develop. Add sugar according to your taste preference.
Strain the chai into cups using a tea strainer or a sieve.
Garnish with a few mint leaves if desired.
Serve hot with the freshly made parathas for a perfect breakfast combination.
Enjoy the delicious and comforting Parathas and Chai for a hearty start to your day!
