Golden Puris & Parathas

This month's Magic Mingle combo is wheat and corn.I've been struggling to somehow get the lunchbox empty from school...but in vain.I tried these puris which are her absolute favourite today.I also made parathas but the puris looked like golden risen blobs of dough frying in the pan.

I haven't added much flavouring to these puris because its for the little one but still they looked fantastic because of the colors in them.

You need

Whole wheat flour 2 cup
Carrots grated 1/2 cup
Corn 1/2 cup
Semolina 2 tablespoons
water to make a non sticky puri dough
salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

  • Grate the carrots and cook the corn kernels.I used frozen corn so i boiled it in salt water for a bit and  grind it to a smooth paste.
  • Mix the carrots and the corn paste to the wheat flour and the rest of ingredients and make a smooth dough.
  • Roll out into small circles and fry them in oil.Else if making parathas roll them into bigger circles and cook them on a flat griddle/tawa.

  • Serve hot with sauce or yogurt.
-If i were making it for me , i'd have added extra seasoning or masalas and served with some spicy curry :)
- If you like you can stuff the puris/parathas rather than mixing it in with the dough.I didn't do it as my daughter will pick out the stuffing.
